Review: Didn’t want to stop turning the pages. People who just want to experience the same rights to love the people they love, regardless of sexual preference and gender.

It’s the life blood of an author to have someone read and like their book. It means the world to me, and especially since the subject matter of my book is tolerance. It’s my dream that someday “we” all learn to accept each other with our differences and that hatred dissolves into love. I’m deeply humbled and honored by this review from the very talented author Angella Graff. Thank you so much.

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.

  1. I know you humbly feel this accolade. I like that about you. In the heart and spirit of intolerance of which I am going to write a blog I leave you here with this quote that is so gentle and yet powerful to me- ” Our differences don’t matter much when we need the comfort of another. Look beyond the differences and find a way to walk the path together.”
    Always

    I hope the same but think that’s utopia..

    • That’s so true. I am a realist. I worked the second busiest emergency room in Los Angeles county and taught ER clinic plus nursing school and have seen a lot. The human condition doesn’t elude me yet in my heart lives this dream and somehow that makes my heart feel so much better. I see were are on the same page. Love when you stop by. Thank you. 🙂

  3. So happy for your wonderful reviews, but mostly truly happy for the joy it is bringing you. Love, Sheri
