Praise for Winter Sisters:
“[A] stunning mystery…Oliveira writes with feeling.”—The New York Times Book Review
“[An] engrossing story of unspeakable crime and unbreakable love…propelled by feminist themes that feel utterly timely.”—People, “The Best New Books”
“Engrossing…a meaty historical novel that sensitively addresses issues—among them gender equality, the rights of minors, corruption and child abuse—that plague us even today.” —The Seattle Times
“Oliveira crafts a complex, multifaceted historical novel that is both a captivating story and a commentary on the laws that have, for far too long, oppressed and endangered women…. Entertaining at times, deeply political at others; a perfect example of a historical novel that also illuminates present-day issues.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Oliveira’s beautiful, expertly researched novel showcases the lives of women overcoming societal constraints and living fearlessly.”—Publishers Weekly
“Oliveira is as gently direct with her traumatized characters as Mary is with her patients. The story shines in depicting Albany’s diverse geography and society, and the era’s antifemale bias feels downright infuriating…a multifaceted and affecting portrait of courage.”—Booklist
“A haunting tale of terror and enduring love, Winter Sisters is tense and vivid. It kept me immersed to the last page.”
—Nancy Horan, New York Times bestselling author of Loving Frank and Under the Wide and Starry Sky
