This review is from: The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap (Paperback)

Because of the title, I was anxious to find out how the story ends.

The book proves that, no matter how you come to the aide of your neighbor, or not matter how valued you are in your community, a few whispers will grow into something ugly, and there are always people waiting to see you fall.

The cast here is wonderful. There are some forward-thinkers, some people who just want to live and let live, and others who are so idle of mind and of body that they want nothing more than to see the destruction of others.

The overriding themes here are that of tolerance and the idea that it only takes a person or two to erase progress.

Highly recommended!

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

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 Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the 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 Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives.
