I am not much of a fiction reader by nature but I was absolutely captivated by The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap. It is a story of love, learning to trust again and just how much more complicated our lives and hearts truly are than what we allow others to see on the surface. The characters are fascinating and the author describes them each in such a manner that you feel as if you have come to know them on a personal basis. Mildred comes across as a real survivor despite everything that has been thrown at her which is certainly something I can relate to in my own life. I found this book difficult to put down and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone looking for a novel that truly captivates them.

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.
