We persecute what we fear and we fear what we do not know. The beauty of this book is that it allows the reader to get to know Mildred Dunlap – not as a lesbian nor as a 19th century homesteader, but as a person with the same hopes, fears, and joys that we all share. Through Mildred’s journey, you feel the pain and fear of alienation and the healing power of friendship and acceptance.
(Thank you, Lisa Arends (Author of Lessons From the End of a Marriage), for this great review which captures the essence of the story. It’s an honor coming from another author whose work I admire and has helped so many)
