Wow, Wow, and Wow. Is that too subtle? I loved Paulette Mahurin’s The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

ImagePrejudice lives with us, whether it is related to birth, gender, color, ethnicity, nativity, marriage, work, or any other reason out there. We have sent man to the Moon, missions to Mars, have a black President of the USA and yet we haven’t been able to root out prejudice.

How must then life have been for a woman in the 1800s? A woman who fell in love with another woman,in a small town in Nevada where everyone knows the other and gossip and scandal are its sole entertainment.

Mildred falls in love with her cousin Edra and in the circumstances and the emotions of the day, has to turn to Charley, a widower, to give them a facade. Will the three be able to carve a life for themselves?

Set against the backdrop of the imprisonment of Oscar Wilde in England for homosexuality, Paulette Mahurin’s The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap is a lyrical book, a book that will move you to tears and also uplift you.

This is a book that makes you think. It is a book Rodin would ponder over.

There is only one drawback with this book. It makes you wish Paulette Mahurin releases a book every day and keeps us submerged in the magic of her writing.
