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.

    A beautiful message. Took time to listen to some of the other lovely Carpenter tunes too. Actually I sang along. 🙂

  9. What a heartfelt message. It is hard for me to understand how people can’t love other life.

    • Some people don’t even love their own life. And, the world view goes down hill from there. My opinion for what it’s worth. With love in my heart, I see a lot of love out there. Hatred? Not so much. Thanks for your always welcome comment. 🙂

      • And that is why they don’t love any other life. It must start with God first and then ourselves. And God’s love is shed abroad in our hearts to all life. You have such a warm happy generous loving heart

  10. Oh geez. Karen Carpenter can sure evoke some emotions can’t she?
