RECENT REVIEWS FOR THE PERSECUTION OF MILDRED DUNLAP
5.0 out of 5 stars Sets in 1895 and talks of the present, May 31, 2017
This review is from: The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap (Paperback)

‘The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap’ is set in 1895 when the world stormed with the news of the conviction of one of the most successful playwrights, novelists, poets and short story writers and noted celebrity Oscar Wilde was sentenced to two years of hard imprisonment after being convicted of “gross indecency.”

The story is of two women Mildred Dunlap and her cousin Edra is a subject of gossip for the people of Red River Pass, a small town in Nevada who finds themselves in the similar circumstances as of Mr. Wilde.

The book is worth every penny and every second you give to this book. The book makes a point from the opening chapters and concludes on a note. It is a thoughtful writing and slap on the biased and judgmental thinking of people who loves to subjugate other people and wish to find faults based on their life choices. The story is based in 1895 but it reads as it talks the present time.

The book is well written as plot and subplots of the story are intelligently designed. It is a beautiful story capturing the struggle of human rights and how love and friendship bring strength and healing in the life of two women.

BULL RESCUED Screen Shot 2017-05-30 at 6.57.00 AM
Bull has been rescued. Every once in a while a dog catches your eye and breaks your heart. Bull has been in the shelter 8 months and despite the fact he had over 800 pledges and 2,000 shared social media posts, he had been overlooked. Finally he was rescued by an incredible rescue group/woman, given training at a ranch and is now happy with his new mom who works from home and gives him lots of loving attention. This one made my day.

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 happy looking bunch of beautiful dogs. Great news!

  2. GP Cox says:

    It’s great you’re doing something now. Being on a budget, but not having any blood relatives left, I’ve been thinking of leaving my condo to a no-kill shelter. They could sell it and use the money, right?

  3. Jut look at Stanley….from a pen to a garden and he is a different dog.
    Great to see all those happy faces.

    • I know, poor old Stanley, got lucky just in time. Thank goodness for the good people who rescue the older dogs. And absolutely what a difference a yard makes. Have a great weekend. ❤

      • Now the pups are recovering from the bug picked up at the vets by the one who was run over…we will. Glad to see the back of a week of vomit, poop and…anxiety!

      • Oh man, I’m glad that’s behind you. Pardon the use of words. Reminds me of when we rescued Max and Bella. They came with giardia and gave it to our other dog, Eli. What a mess. We had to hospitalized Max in ICU with dehydration and had a hell of a time trying to contain it as they kept cross contaminating… Needless to say, I understand. Thankfully, they’re with you and being taken good care of. Thank you for that. Now fingers crossed they stay well.

    • Oh you made me smile. I love the way you mew unner. So cute ya’ll are. I love those happy faces and waggy tails and I’m sure they can feel all your pawsome energy floating their way. You three beauties have that effect on the rest of us. Hope you got some calm weather and are enjoying the weekend. ❤

    What is a kill shelter?

    • Hi Rajiv and thank you for asking. It’s a shelter for dogs that are without families and because there are more dogs than spaces to hold them, a lot (way too many) are put to sleep = kill shelter where dogs are euthanized. There does exist some shelters that are deemed “no kill” shelter for instance there is one near where I live in Ventura County Santa Paula Animal Rescue Center and in a population of close to a million people it’s the only “no-kill” shelter. More shelters are trying their best to adopt out dogs and not just put them to sleep after the 2-3 day wait period. It’s a more humane way of giving dogs a chance at life but in no means meets the demands. Thousands of dogs are killed (euthanized) each year because of lack of space and resources to keep them alive.

      • Rajiv says:

        Wow.. we have a different problem, that of stray dogs. They can be dangerous at times, because of the risk of rabies. We have a minister who makes it illegal to put them to sleep, yet we have no shelwtrs for them either.

        With 1.3 billion of us, everything has a tendency to become commoditized, including life

      • Thank you, Rajiv. It’s a sad situation, the overpopulation and under-service to it. Either side of the pendulum is so difficult and I’m not sure there’s any real solution or balance in sight. I suppose the answer is to do what one can. One tiny act of kindness at a time. I hope you have a good week my friend. ❤

    Wish you all the best in your noble endeavour.
