Today we highlight a nurse practitioner turned novelist, Paulette Mahurin. Paulette is a family nurse practitioner, practicing women’s health in a rural clinic in California.Paulette spoke to us about her inspiration for the novel: “The inspiration for this historical novel, set in 1895, was the imprisonment of Oscar Wilde and the impact the news of his imprisonment had on a lesbian couple, living in Nevada. When the news of Wilde’s imprisonment went out over telegraphs and arrived at the town the women lived in, it threw their lives into chaos. The theme of Wilde’s imprisonment returns throughout the novel, setting in motion a chronicle of hared and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences. It is also a chronicle of how love and friendship bring strength and healing.”

THE PERSECUTION OF MILDRED DUNLAP
 By Paulette MahurinEmail: ptmahurin@sbcglobal.net
ISBN # 978-0-9771866-1-7   Price: $14.95
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 Britain’s recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When 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 Wilde’s imprisonment. It is a chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing.

REVIEWS:

“Paulette Mahurin’s first novel is surefooted and unflinching in its portrayal of a singular and unique character and her compelling struggles. Compassionate and confident, Mahurin allows Mildred’s story to burn through onto the page with all its inherent outrage and tenacious, abiding love. Here is a character we can champion—flawed, striving, surviving— and fully embrace in her awkward, beautiful navigation of a world that resists her in every way.”

Deb Norton, Playwrite/screenwriter of The Whole Banana

“If you need to question your values, read this book! The author captures the intolerance and hypocrisy of a 1895 Nevada town, and its transcendence in time through tolerance and understanding.  The angst and pain that two women feel daily, living the ‘lie’ of their lesbian relationship, and the prejudice they must endure, is unconscionable.  I was moved to tears by their struggle in the face of the conflicted values that continue to dominate our ‘modern’ society.”

William K. Fox, PhD, Professor of Zoology

Paulette Mahurin is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their three dogs—Eli, Max, and Bella. She practices women’s health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time.
