Product Description:

Mary Cassatt never thought leaving America and moving to Paris to pursue her artistic dreams would be easy. After her work is rejected from the Paris Salon, she begins to doubt whether her art is truly any good. Then one evening a friend introduces her to Edgar Degas and her life is changed forever. Robin Oliveira brilliantly re-creates the irresistible world of Belle epoque Paris, as she imagines a romance between two impressionist painters.

Review:

Praise for "My Name Is Mary Sutter" "Think of Mary Sutter as a northern Scarlett O'Hara without the man-killer good looks or feminine wiles; more a Louisa May Alcott Plain Jane with a will of scalpel-sharp steel...Oliveira... peels back Mary's vulnerable, human side in this intriguing slice of Civil War history." - "USA"" Today" "The title of Robin Oliveira's debut historical novel, "My Name Is Mary Sutter," perfectly evokes its eponymous heroine's style: clear, determined, and, unlike most women of the Civil War era, unapologetically direct." - "O, The Oprah Magazine " "This work of fiction is built on years of research. The payoff comes in the rich details of this feminist story, which follows a young midwife from her upstate New York home to battlefields of the South as she pursues her ambition to become a surgeon...more than a dozen women who went into the Civil War as nurses did indeed emerge as physicians. "My Name Is Mary Sutter" give an idea of the immense sacrifices these women made in terms of social acceptance, close relationships and personal health." - "The Seattle Times " "At the center of Robin Oliveira's enthralling and well-researched debut novel is an ambitious young woman who refuses to accept the limited roles women played in the field of medicine during the mid-19th century...With war as her canvas, Oliveira captures the campgrounds and battlefields of Virginia as vividly as the scenes of Mary's midwifing, and the book's sensuous language, wealth of period details, and unflinching descriptions of battles like Manassas and Antietam place it solidly in the ranks of the best historical fiction. [A] Believable, nuanced...sweeping portrait...Absorbing drama about a little-known side of the Civil War." - "The Atlanta Journal-Constitution " "[A] riveting saga about trying to break a 19th-century glass ceiling." - "Good Housekeeping " ""My Name Is Mary Sutter "is a riveting, well-researched novel about
