The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap by Paulette Mahurin – Review and Post!
The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap by Paulette Mahurin
“A book isn’t going to form some opinion about me that could wreck my life. I learn about so many new and great hings from reading. I keep to myself with a good book and a shot of whiskey and I’m right with the world.”
The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap is a book that I think everyone must read. Through its beautiful words and thought provoking story it imparts valuable lessons. How a piece of news regarding someone else that challenges the people’s thinking and their ideals, how it affects the people all over, even in small towns is described here. It beautifully shows how our mentality is and how we make rash judgments, weather we mean to or not, How our harsh words and comments hurt people, How people need to change and how an act of kindness affects others.
With this book I took my time reading because I didn’t want to rush it. I wanted to think through and apply what I know. This book has been the most thought provoking book that I’ve ever read so far. I would constantly ask myself while reading the book – Do I do this? Do I behave like this? Undoubtedly my favorite character has to be Gus. I found his way of thinking intriguing and I could just hope to be a little bit like him. A little bit like Mildred too, kindness is often overlooked but one always remembers the person who has been kind to them. This book has inspired me to be a better person than I am today and honestly I am in a lack for words to describe how much this book has affected me.
All the profits that the author gets from the sale of this book goes to the first and the only no-kill shelter in Ventura County! Santa Paula
Animal Rescue Center. You can check out their website here: http://www.santapaulaarc.org/
I think its a wonderful cause and I think its incredibly cool for the author to give away the profits to the shelter!! All the more reason to get this book…..You can get your copy of this book over at Amazon
And there is an event on 30th November on Facebook where you can win a copy of the book! 😀 Join the event and tell them we sent you! 😉
