Amazon Review: Autumn Nauling

5.0 out of 5 stars A book I would recommend to all., August 3, 2012
This review is from: The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap (Paperback)

I received this book from the author to give an honest review.

This book kept me from the beginning. It did not seem like a historical book to me. Paulette really has talent writing a book because I was drawn not only to the characters but to the plot as well.

I found myself wanting to smack a few characters around a bit just because they would make me so upset. With the way the small town had gossipers I could relate since I live in a small town and sure enough you have certain people who are nosy and love to talk about others.

I felt even though the book was set in 1895, you could relate to the book as of today. With the hiding of a certain sexuality, to the gossipers to losing someone. I think this is a book that should be read by everyone and in it you learn that you should not go by what you hear and form judgement or opinions based on others. You should form you own judgement’s and opinion’s based on what you think.

The book had a great ending and again I would recommend this book to all to read.

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.
