10*s. I received an eARC copy ofthis book directly from the author in return for an honest review. I was totally blown away at the historical writings of The Persecution of Mildre Dunlap. Its historically and educationally well written of a small prejudices and gossip, set back in 1895, which still has not changed in small towns. I will admit that this is out of my genre and I was a little leary at first about reading this story, but once I started, I was hooked and very intrigued. This author did a spot on job with this story and it is a MUST read, but be worned that reader discretion is advised. It was a wonderous story that I will truely treasure. Thank you, Paulette, for the opportunity to read this remarkablely well written story!!
