The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap, Great Gift for Readers!

Published on: November 29, 2012

If you’re looking for something special to give to those who love to read, be sure to check out a fantastic Christmas gift, “The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap”, by author Paulette Mahurin. Sold on Amazon, the best-selling book has been featured in dozens of prominent newspapers and magazines, and has received acclaim in countries around the globe.

What it’s about: Set in 1895 Nevada, the story centers around characters, Mildred and Edra, who live on a ranch outside of town to avoid the prying eyes of the local gossips. Everybody has secrets and things that they would be uncomfortable sharing about themselves, including the two ladies who choose to distance themselves from the local community.  Mahurin brilliantly captures human nature and small town thinking, along with the struggle for human rights  in this emotionally-charged, fast paced tale that you can’t stop reading. The author spent six years researching every detail relevant to the novel and its time frame, providing an accurate portrayal that lends to the plausibility of the story and characters.

For those seeking meaningful messages around Christmas, “The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap” is thoughtful gift that friends and family will appreciate. Best of all, you end up giving another gift when you purchase the book–all profits from book sales go to animal rescue at Santa Paula Animal Rescue Center, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA.

MEET THE AUTHOR: Book Signing with Paulette Mahurin on Friday, December 7, 2012,  5-7 p.m.  at Ojai Museum, 130 W. Ojai Ave, Ojai, CA. FREE admission. There will be other authors signing. They will be selling wine. Call: (805) 640-1390. See:


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.
