Publisher's Summary

“Stunning... Oliveira writes with feeling.” (The New York Times Book Review)

“[An] engrossing story... that feels utterly timely.”(People - "The Best New Books”)

New York, 1879: An epic blizzard descends on Albany, devastating the city. 

When the snow finally settles, two newly orphaned girls are missing. Determined not to give up hope, Dr. Mary Sutter, a former Civil War surgeon, searches for the two sisters. When what happened to them is finally revealed, Dr. Sutter must fight the most powerful of Albany's citizens, risking personal and public danger as she seeks to protect the fragile, putting at risk loves and lives in her quest to right unimaginable wrongs. 

As contemporary as it is historic, Winter Sisters is part gripping thriller, part family saga, and ultimately a story of trauma and resilience that explores the tremendous good and unspeakable evil of which humans are capable.

A captivating story based on historic background.

A well told story that was hard to hear at times (due to subject matter) but otherwise held my attention

Tedious

So repetitive of the gory details and too much extraneous detail. Had to fast forward and skip parts.

What a story...

This was quite a novel. Though it’s subject was dark, the characters are so well written. Riveting.

Childish and predictable

I wanted to request a refund within the first 30 minutes as I already knew the ending but figured I just had to be wrong. I wasn't. There was zero anticipation or excitement. It is overly descriptive which makes it tedious. I was actually angry when it ended as there was less than no surprise. I feel like 10 hours of my life were stolen.
