“In this debut novel the story-telling is excellent. Some of the character’s like Gus and Charley will endear themselves to the reader while there are others you want to shake some sense into. We are dealing with the struggle of human rights and the visciouness of all forms of prejudice. Through this beautiful story we learn of love; physical, emotional and spiritual. We are enlightened by thoughts and lessons of tolerance, empathy and sesitivity and are reminded of how close-mindedness, hurtful words and gossip can literally kill the spirit in others. The problems in 1895 are no different from what we deal with today.
I borrowed this book from the Kindle Lending Library.”

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.
