The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap
By: Paulette Mahurin

I began reading this novel with no expectations except one… (That it was going to be either truly cruel or very sad)…. I am so happy that it turned out to be a wonderfully compassionate and victoriously triumphant read…..

I loved the prologue that started with the story of (Oscar Wilde…. A man put on trial and convicted for his sexual relationship with a man)… I’m a history buff so I’m always pulled into actual historic stories…. I was equally in love as I journeyed into this beautifully written novel and story of a town that even though ignorance, judgment and ridicule seems to be a permanent and familiar resident….it shows that they can also show how truly amazing one can be when forced with an injustice that can only be overcome through unity…..

The main character Mildred and her friend and companion Edra, gives us a uniquely amazing insight into a relationship of true love, companionship, friendship and enduring support that any person, no matter who you are….should aspire to have within their very own relationship.

The title intrigues you and pulls you in, but the story embraces and truly touches your very soul…..
A truly feel good and amazingly humanistic story that will be a part of your heart for years to come…..

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.
