Review: Feel As If You Were Really There… Very Controversial…Received A True Understanding…..

 

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a Thinker!, October 4, 2012

Set in the year 1895, The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap was an amazing book that really and truly takes you back and makes you feel as though you were really there. Honestly, if I wasn’t told this book was a work of fiction I would have never believed it.

Very controversial in it’s content, I felt like I received a true understanding for what happened to make our lives the way they are today. What kind of adversity people have to deal with daily. The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap revolves around the trials and tribulations of people that are homosexual have always had to deal with. I don’t want to go too deep into the plot and give too much away but I assure you that this is definitely a book you should give a chance to and keep an open mind while reading.

What good is a book if it doesn’t take you away from real life and make you think? This book is definitely a book to make a person think.

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.
