An often taboo subject approached with much grace!

I continue to be extremely grateful to those who take the time read my book and to write a review. All the profits have gone to help save the lives of dogs and cats in the first and only no kill shelter in Ventura County, where I live.   http://www.vcstar.com/news/2012/sep/08/ojai-authors-historical-novel-teaches-tolerance/

I have just finished reading “The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap” and found it very interesting. I especially liked how much history was included. Also, the characters were all well-defined, and represented certain values or states of social awareness. What I really appreciated is showing how even adults get caught up in “going along” instead of thinking through an issue to decide how they feel about it without any undue influence. This book would be appealing to young adults as well as to an older generation, because it is simply written, and yet deals with serious issues that still plague us today.

Great read. I had read about the prosecution of Oscar Wilde a long time ago, and this story fit in perfectly about the biases during those early years of our country.

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.

    Terrific that these positive reviews keep coming, as so they should. Thus so for it is an excellent, enjoyable read, and a worthy meritorious expose of pain causing narrow-mindedness to fellow beings. Add to this, Paulette Mahurin the author, turning this prize into a vehicle from which the total proceeds supports a unique animal shelter. Unbeatable to say the least! A story that has to encourage all to spread the good word for this this shelter’s wonderful cause.

  11. Barbara says:

    Positive and encouraging reviews on the book Paulette, and all in the aid of helping animals. You are a gem!

  12. Tatsat says:

    I am often intrigued by your love for animals. I mean I am yet to explore that dimension myself. One of my closest friends from Ukraine is really into cats and she might have bit me as well – I think am a cat person. Irrespective of the ‘type’ I think we should be with some of them right from early age. Things are different in developing countries as only the affluent few are able to afford pets. But of course, that should change.

    Lovely reviews. Feel blessed to have known you…

    • Thank you so much, Tatsat. From as far back as I can remember my passion for and relationship with dogs has enriched my life. I hear you about developing countries where it is hard enough to feed oneself let alone a pet. I will hold out that thought that one day you will commune as family with a cat. The blessing to know you is shared. 🙂

  13. SO glad to hear that people still ‘get’ your fantastic book Paulette! ❤

  14. Hi my dear . Haven’t heard from you or you haven’t heard from me either in some time . Another great review and those blessings are being passed on to the animals you so richly love.
    Take care and love you my dear
