Review: Well deserving of its critical acclaim

What an honor to receive this review from a highly published author, Julie Catherine Vigna. Thank you so much for this great review.

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. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.

  3. And well deserved. Such an amazing book.

    • To have you come here, Christoph Fischer, and say these kinds words leaves me a little speechless. Your book and your writing was some of the most compelling and enjoyable I’ve read in a long time. That you could take the subject matter you did, the Holocaust, and write it in an upbeat and inspirational way is nothing short of genius. That you like what I wrote is such a thrill for me. Getting to know you through our books, has been a wonderful experience for me. Thank you so much!
