Amazon Review: Characterization is the Best I’ve Seen


3.0 out of 5 stars Peace not Judgement, August 13, 2012
This review is from: The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap (Paperback)

Details: In the late 1800s to specific people the world is so unjust. African Americans are in power within the USA government. Jewish people are allowed to live even if they are in jail. Gay and Lesbien couples are not tortured, broken, ruined, and killed on the spot. In the small town of Red River pass Nevada, one busybody who happens to be the town’s worst gossip is ready to take all her anger and frustrations about this unjust world she lives in mouton one woman. Mildred has lots of money, a secret she wishes to keep hidden, and the one person in town who helps everyone financially whhey are down and out on their luck. She keeps to herself with her cousin on the outskirts of town. But the town’s gossip girls aren’t going to let a little distance come between them and their plans of ruin for Mildred. Can Mildred come to learn to trust anyone in her town? Will her secret come to light by the cruelty of the gossip girls?

My Review: This was an interesting read. Our society, our culture here in the USA has gone through so much. A promised land of freedom, wealth, and safety to all who come here doesn’t mean equality, trust, love, and peace all the time and all at once. Wehave gone through wars to be free. We have given our lives, sweat, blood, and good men women and children to the American dream. Differences make up who and what an American is. These differences can break us apart or make us stronger. Even some differences between people may result in some people seeing those differences as going against the God of all people.

Paulette addresses these issues within her amazingly well written book. She is a great author as her characterization is the best I’ve seen. The plot is so realistic it seems like honest true history.

If you don’t mind reading books about controverisal topics this is a great read. If you don’t like controversial topics then don’t read this. Mom’s Thumb Reviews gives this book a thumbs up and thumbs down. Thumbs up for how well it is written, and a thumbs down because we do not affiliate with or support Gay or Lesbien standards.m


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.
