Some of my best reads feature strong women characters. Mary Sutter is such an individual and she is my kind of woman! I felt as if I were beside her as she struggled with her society's beliefs about the place of women, not only in the community but also in tragedy such as that caused by war. Her goal to reach beyond the accepted role of women as midwives to become a surgeon is one women yet encounter when they choose to be all that they can be. This is an outstanding read.
