5.0 out of 5 stars The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap, September 26, 2012
Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap (Paperback)

I bought this book based on a recommendation from a friend. Wasn’t sure I was the ” historical” type, but I got it anyway. Once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down. It’s incredible that the whole story started from a single picture. Loved the way it was written, it kept my interest and I even learned a few historical facts that I somehow never picked up. I enjoy reading a story that evolves as well as this one did. I never had to backtrack just to figure out what was going on. I appreciated the way the friendships grew and allowed the characters to virtually blossom right there on the pages. It’s a reminder to all of us that values like truth and tolerance and acceptance are really just the golden rules of life we were all taught to live by. Now, my only question is … when is the next book coming out!

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.
