Review: Brenda Sorrels’ The Bachelor Farmers

<a href=”; style=”float: left; padding-right: 20px”><img alt=”The Bachelor Farmers” border=”0″ src=”; /></a><a href=””>The Bachelor Farmers</a> by <a href=””>Brenda Sorrels</a><br/>
My rating: <a href=”″>5 of 5 stars</a><br /><br />
Brenda Sorrels’ The Bachelor Farmer is a charming, beautifully written, story that draws you in from the first page with a the death and dying of the father figure surrounded by his sons. The story then moves to the two sons, living together, farming together, in harmony until…a woman enters, creating the needed conflict to capture and hold the reader steadfast. The book starts out gentle and engagingly simple, easy to read, hard to put down, until it smacks you in the face in the second part – when the blizzard hits metaphorically and literally. Sorrels’ is a master at bringing the storm into the reader’s mind, making it impossible to put the book down. It unwinds and unfolds in unpredictable ways that leave you haunted by its visions long after the last page has been shut. Paulette Mahurin, Author of The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

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.
