Taking the road less traveled

ImagePrejudice lives with us, whether it is related to birth, gender, color, ethnicity, nativity, marriage, work, or any other reason out there. We have sent man to the Moon, missions to Mars, have a black President of the USA and yet we havenโ€™t been able to root out prejudice.

How must then life have been for a woman in the 1800s? A woman who fell in love with another woman,in a small town in Nevada where everyone knows the other and gossip and scandal are its sole entertainment.

Mildred falls in love with her cousin Edra and in the circumstances and the emotions of the day, has to turn to Charley, a widower, to give them a facade. Will the three be able to carve a life for themselves?

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.

    This is great. I see here “how it’s done”. I truly hope it has gone from strength to strength.

    Oscar Wilde is very interesting to me.

    • Thank you so much! I hope so also. Oscar Wilde was and continues to be an inspiration for me. Against very hard circumstances, including a very harsh 2 year imprisonment, he refused to compromise who he was. It takes a lot of courage to stand up to what he did.
