Anon Review Posted on Amazon

5.0 out of 5 stars A very thought provoking read, May 29,

This review is from: The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap
I was not only entertained with this authors plot line, but also her ability to weave in history as well. I am familiar with the geographic area she was writing about, and at one time felt I could smell the general store she was describing. I was taken away to the time, and wore the skin of the two main characters, and shared their angst and fears, and also their joy and love for each other. Mauhrin makes a compelling posit that provokes us to consider the plight of these two women, and brings it on to todays stage. It is a timely problem, and arrives at a time that begs us to consider whether we have the humanity to allow two individuals to share their love without judgement. Well done to you for having the courage to bring this to the foreground!

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives.
