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. Oh so sad. I knew some of the “art” but not the “who” behind them. Shhhhh, don’t tell Carl.

    Paulette, It was a wonderful post, but I only recognized 7 of the 16, so I didn’t do near as well as I thought I would. And I could only name 2 of the paintings so shame on me. But it was a great post and I commented on Carl’s page as well. Take care, Bill

  5. Behind any work of art exposed lies an artist unspoken story. Behind an artist can hide a lot of feelings immortalized in his work.

    Excellent reblog, Paulette. I’m a fan of Carl’s site. I’m amazed he can think of a joke a day! It’s great.

    • He’s got a great site that really gets me thinking. I love those cartoon drawings and invites to come up with some witty response, that usually leave me scratching my head to think of something to say. Good thing to get me using my gray cells, lol. This one was one of my favorites. Glad we have cyber friends in common. The world gets smaller. 😉
