I loved this book, was well written pulled together well and was obviously researched for the history that went into this storyline.The wicked woman could have been expanded on a little more,but over all I loved this book. Looking forward to more from this author.

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

This book takes place back in in 1985 and is based around the main character, Mildred and her love for Edra, her cousin. Although the love shown within this story isn’t the typical family love but of a couple who romantically love each other. Mildred and Edra strive and fight to keep their relationship a secret by befriending a guy to throw off the gossip group within town. Charley helps the ladies by becoming their friend. Rumors start that Charley and Mildred are pregnant and engaged. The stress of how the town treats Mildred gets to her nerves and makes her sick. Therefore she was unable to go to town which only fueled the rumors. The gossip group of ladies within this town made me sick. I hated how they meddled in the lives of others for the heck of it and it didn’t matter if they were creating problems for those around them.

I enjoyed the read and had a hard time putting it down. I kept telling myself.. “One more chapter and then I’ll lay down.” Of course this turned into five or six and me falling asleep with my Kindle in hand. So yes.. I couldn’t put down the book to sleep. I think the author did a great job with the plot and characters. I felt for Mildred and despised the gossip ladies within this book. The ending took me on a turn I didn’t expect and I had trouble holding back tears.

I recommend this book to those who are okay with lesbians and who is looking for an enjoyable read.

Good book! It kept my attention, was well written, and offered a nice insight to how life may have been realistically during that time period. I would recommend this book.


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.
