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.
