The town of Red River Pass awakens to the news of the arrest and imprisonment of Oscar Wilde, a story that aggravates a number of the intolerant citizens of this small, quiet town. Whilst they await the news of Wilde’s imprisonment, one of their own — a peaceful, tolerant and plain woman named Mildred Dunlap — worries that her own secrets will soon be unveiled for the ruthless town gossips to exploit.
The Persecution Of Mildred Dunlap is a story of intolerance, loss, grief and persecution in 19th century America. A story about the frailty of life and the power of idyl gossip and thoughtless vengeance.
A riveting read from start to finish, it is a very well written, highly enjoyable book.
