Winter SistersRhaps if I had I would have been prepared for what was to come but alas as it was what I read was not in the least what I expected ie a magical fairytale or a cozy mystery No indeed this was a ritty dark meticulously researched work of historical fiction that covered some incredibly challenging indeed this was a ritty dark meticulously researched work of historical fiction that covered some incredibly challenging child abduction rape devastating natural events floods blizzards bribery and corruption at the highest levels of local politics and Considering that I was expecting and in the mood for a light and magical tale it speaks to the excellence of this novel that I was uickly pulled in and enthralled to the point I was staying up long past my bedtime to find out what happened next Oliveira builds a rich atmosphere depicting late 19th century Albany in Stretching Lessons: The Daring that Starts from Within great detail and she examines the sensitive themes she does with tastefulness that does not brush over their horrific nature The story is essentially about twoirls orphaned in a blizzard who are kidnapped and held against their will while the 10 year old one is raped Some chapters in and several weeks later the Call the Next Witness girls are able to escape the basement where they are held because of another natural disaster a flood caused by melting ice and snow The remainder of the story is about the aftermath of their travails about the trail both legal and public opinion about the difficulty of healing from such traumatic and horrific crimes about the power of familial support But what makes this an excellent historical work is that Winter Sisters is not just a story of individual overcoming of hardship it is also an expertly woven political tale about city machinations and crony relationships within theovernmental and business spheres and about corruption at the highest levels And finally it is a searing depiction of and commentary on the historical oppression of women not only by the literal letter of the law but also by public opinion In 1879 the age of consent in NY was ten years and the vast majority of rape victims who even made it to trial as rape trials were incredibly rare were accused of wanting it and asking for it and as long as they were 10 years old or over usually this defense worked So many of these themes held on for at least a century though to an extent we are finally now emerging out of this era of traditional debasement and devaluing of womenThis novel is not for the faint of heart and also not for those who do not wish to read about such horrific acts as child rape which is implied only not described But if you can bear that I highly recommend this to anyone interested in historical fiction especially that set in the United States around the period of industrialization and urbanization and especially to those interested in women s history A historical story about two young Building for the Arts: The Strategic Design of Cultural Facilities girls who disappear during a horrific blizzard in Albany in the late 1800 s Many lives were lost and many catastrophes occurred because of the heavy blizzard and then its after effects of snowice melt and flooding In this town there are veryood hearted normal and hard working people and as always there are also some dark souls The story is heart breaking and emotionally stirring with the hope that these innocent little Bulletproof Feathers: How Science Uses Nature's Secrets to Design Cutting-Edge Technology girls are found and are unharmed and alive The plot escalates onward and the readerets taken in with fingers pointed at possible suspects and eventually Casuistry and Modern Ethics: A Poetics of Practical Reasoning goes into a heated court trial with a small town judge and jury Some other juicy scandals and social injustices are revealed along the way It was aood read I am Charlestown Blues going backwards tho to read the first book I am Mary Sutter by the same author She also wrote I Always Loved You I really don t think it mattered that I read this book out of author seuence because I was able to follow it along as a stand alone. Ing at risk loves and lives in her uest to right unimaginable wrongs As contemporary as it is historic Winter Sisters is partripping thriller part family saga and ultimately a story of trauma and resilience that explores the tremendous ood and unspeakable evil of which humans are capab. ,
