Book   Description:
A women’s Brokeback Mountain. The year was filled with   memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T.   Washington gave his Atlanta address; the United States expanded the effects   of the Monroe Doctrine in South America; and Oscar Wilde was tried and   convicted for gross indecency under Britain’s recently passed law that made   sex between males a criminal offense. When 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   the Wilde news. It is a chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its   unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring   strength and healing.

BRT   Review Title:
No matter who you love, you should love this book
BRT   Review:
I read this book in paperback. This is a story of love,   laws, judgment and compassion. No matter what time this story took place in,   the sentiment of it should ring just as true in 2012 as it did in the 1800′s. The story is beautifully told of a woman who is not aesthetically pleasing to   the eyes of the opposite sex and garners ridicule and disdain from her female  counterparts, regardless of the kindhearted and selfless soul that she is. Without giving away too much of the story, I found the chronicling of the events where people were determined to pass judgment on her though many have  sustained their own lives at the hands of her generosity, intriguing and   thought-provoking. The compassionate perspective of the author is clear, and   the fact that proceeds from the book are being donated to an animal shelter   makes the book that much more worthy of a read. Great review talk! But you   be the judge.
