The Persecution Of Mildred Dunlap by Paulette Dunlap Post- Review Post -Review

The Persecution Of Mildred Dunlap    by Paulette Mahurin       Post- Review
My Thoughts:
This is the story of two persecuted women living in a small Nevada town in 1895. They love each other very much, but cannot live their lives the way they want to because of the prejudice and lack of understanding at that time. They have to live secretly and endure the consequences. But in the end they learn how friendship and love gives them the strength to live the way they want to during these trying times. I found it to be a real page turner and interesting story.

It’s a women’s Brokeback Mountain filled with memorable historical events, especially the conviction of Oscar Wilde.

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.
