The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap, by Paulette Mahurin

Synopsis:

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.

After reading the book I’ll post my opinion about it, has always. It will be probably a slow reading, since I have the book on my computer and I’m not used to read books on the computer or kindle device. All I can say is that it seems to be a really interesting story.
If you read it already, post your opinion on the comments.
