A love that can transform your life

5.0 out of 5 stars An Inspirational Life, January 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: His Name was Ben (Kindle Edition)

So often we hear the phrase “cancer survivor” or “cancer patient”, which sometimes leads us to forget that these are real people, with real emotions. Paulette Mahurin’s novel, His Name was Ben, is a beautifully written and poignant novel. It reminds us that people with cancer are indeed real people, trying to live their life, all the while fighting though a terrible disease.

Her characters are so well developed that you cannot help but become immersed in their lives. The book will tug on your emotional heart strings and will stay with you long after you put it away.

But in the end, the book is a tribute to the most important thing all humans need – love. Love between a man and woman, love for animals, love for life, etc. A love that can transform your life.

I strongly recommend this book to everyone.

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. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.

    • Hello Harlon, What a lovely message to start my day, thank you! Even though it’s supposed to be “winter” here, we are hitting all time highs in the 80s which isn’t good for the drought. Wishing you warm thoughts to help you stay warm. Enjoy your kindle and Happy Valentine’s Day this coming Friday the 13th. 🙂
