This book was a riveting historical novel that truly explored the hardships of the Civil War. The issues that Mary faces come to life and were relatable to people in the 21st century. I highly recommend this book to all. The pacing of the book allowed for the reader to decide what he/she would have done in that particular situation. This makes My Name is Mary Sutter a fascinating read that is hard to put down.
