The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap, Great Gift for Readers!

Published on: November 29, 2012

If you’re looking for something special to give to those who love to read, be sure to check out a fantastic Christmas gift, “The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap”, by author Paulette Mahurin. Sold on Amazon, the best-selling book has been featured in dozens of prominent newspapers and magazines, and has received acclaim in countries around the globe.

What it’s about: Set in 1895 Nevada, the story centers around characters, Mildred and Edra, who live on a ranch outside of town to avoid the prying eyes of the local gossips. Everybody has secrets and things that they would be uncomfortable sharing about themselves, including the two ladies who choose to distance themselves from the local community.  Mahurin brilliantly captures human nature and small town thinking, along with the struggle for human rights  in this emotionally-charged, fast paced tale that you can’t stop reading. The author spent six years researching every detail relevant to the novel and its time frame, providing an accurate portrayal that lends to the plausibility of the story and characters.

For those seeking meaningful messages around Christmas, “The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap” is a thoughtful gift that friends and family will appreciate. Best of all, you end up giving another gift when you purchase the book–all profits from book sales go to animal rescue at Santa Paula Animal Rescue Center, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA.
