The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap Book Review


This book is a historical bombshell. I loved the plot and the story line, and the ending I never seen coming. I totally expected something else to happen. “The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap” totally blew me away.

The writing in this book is great and the story captured me from the first page. I really couldn’t put it down. It is such an involved story that you just had to know what happened. I mean there was so much ignorance in that time it was interesting to read about two lesbians living in secret because of what was thought back then.

The time and society that they lived in was a very strict and almost inhumane one. There was a very small amount of open minded people in that time. I think we take for granted how far things have come in our society today. People are still targeted unjustly but this story shows how severe it was back then. These two women lived in fear for their lives because of the love that they had for each other.

This book is not my normal type of read but I was very captivated by this book, the characters really spoke to me and the plot is great. I enjoyed this book thoroughly and would recommend it. The writing was amazing and I loved this book so much! Such a great job and I would read anything else from this author!
