Wanda’s Amazing Amazon Review Top Ten Picks 2012

Wanda's 2012 Top 10I’m thrilled with this award which is from a large group of readers and authors who voted on their favorite reads for 2012. This is really an honor.

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. lgyslaine says:

    Congratulations it is well done! 🙂

  4. Do hope these great reviews are bringing super sales!

    • We’ve been getting a monthly check to the shelter for many months now. I’ve kept the costs of the book and kindle book affordable ($2.99) so people could afford it in this economy and this is certainly the case where every little thing helps. We’ve been lucky and blessed with the reviews and sales of the book. In Oct. last year it his Amazon #3 bestseller in the kindle store. Thank you so much for your supportive energy here. 🙂

    Congratulations but i never read thillers!

    • Thank you. It’s not a thriller. It’s a love/acceptance story against a background of prejudice and persecution against homosexuality, racism and Anti-semitism. It’s been written up in national magazines and large scale press for it’s Pro-tolerance message. It has a strong antibullying theme. All that said, it isn’t necessarily everyone’s preference of genre and I certainly respect that. I don’t want anyone coming here and feeling they need to get the book. My blog site is open for everyone to come and feel welcome to share, comment and hopefully enjoy. I sure do appreciate your stopping by and all the great supportive comments you’ve made. 🙂

        You are welcome!
        We adopted a 6 week-old cattle-dog cross from the RSPCA on Sunday!
        I wanted to call her SHANTHI (Peace) but Mats was not too keen, so today I thought of TARA (the buddhist Bodhisattva of compassion and action Today, she is worshipped both in Buddhism and in Shaktism as one of the ten Mahavidyas. It may be true that goddesses entered Buddhism from Shaktism (i.e. the worship of local or folk goddesses prior to the more institutionalized Hinduism which had developed by the early medieval period (i.e. Middle Kingdoms of India) as Buddhism was originally a religion devoid of goddesses, and in fact deities, altogether. – Wikipedia)
        More later, got to check on the puppy. 🙂

      • You did it! Tara! I’m thrilled. Brought tears to my eyes after all our conversations and heart outpouring. I want to be a cyber auntie and my nickname is paw-wet, Auntie Paw. Can’t wait to see photos. Again and again, I’m thrilled and thank you so much for letting me know. Wowie zowie. 🙂 p.s. my neighbor is a cattle dog,named biscuit. She’s wonderful been traveling all over with her dad/owner. They are a wonderful dog. 🙂
