I’m quickly becoming a fan of Paulette Manhurin! I read her other book, To Live Out Loud, so I went into this one with high expectations. Not only did Manhurin meet those expectations, she far exceeded them with this brilliantly written book.
Who knew that a book about dying could be filled with so much life and vibrancy? Diagnosed with terminal cancer, a couple find true love and begin really living for the first time. Parts of this book were so emotional for me, like when Sara had a double mastectomy and had to learn that her value and womanliness had more to do with her personal strength than her physical appearance. This story is a real tearjerker, but at the same time…I didn’t feel sorry for them; in fact, at times I envied their strengths, love, and ability to persevere in the face of impending death. I won’t forget this story for a long time. This book is truly

This is a beautiful story about two people whose lives are changed after a chance meeting. Both have cancer with minimal chances of survival but find hope, strength, love and renewed passion for life through each other. This book, based on real life events, is moving, uplifting and life affirming. It reminded me of The Fault in Our Stars, but an adult version. These beautifully written characters and their affecting story are going to stick with me for a long time. Profits for this author’s book go to help rescue dogs.

TO LIVE OUT LOUD: REVIEWS AND PURCHASE LINK

on October 19, 2015
I’m a futurist by nature, and so reading sci-fi and fantasy and anything to do with the near and far future occupies the bulk of my leisure time. But every once in a while a writer comes along to connect me to the past in such a way that it’s every bit as much fun to time travel back in time. This is one of those authors and one of those books. I found Emila Zola, as a fellow writer and artist, upon whose life To Live Out Loud is based, quite the kindred spirit. He is if anything a bolder soul, braver, more uncompromising, and a hero not just in his writing but in real life, but it is impossible for any artist not to feel a strong affinity for him. He risks all in this story to champion the injustice done to a Jewish military officer in a time in France when the largely catholic population demonized Jews. His tireless investigations and pursuit of the truth amidst lies, shams, public deceits, all enacted on the part of the government and the military, wielding all their tools of oppression against one solitary individual, serve to inspire us all that hope is never lost even when facing such a corrupt and all-powerful foe. This tale, as timely today as it was in the late 1800s in which the story is set, should serve to inspire the reader to live a more activist lifestyle and to champion their own causes, fighting injustice wherever they may find it. The premise of this fact-based story on its own is quite moving, but the writing is every bit up to the task of conveying such a tale, strong, confident, lean and journalistic, itself an homage to Zola’s own career as a journalist.

Well written and enjoyable

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.

  15. ladysighs says:

    Home Sweet Home! What a great title. The love is in the look. And they all look loved. 🙂

    • That’s so true, that the love is in the look. It’s a relief to see it, especially when I saw the look when they were turned into kill shelters and in cages. They turn around instantly and that never ceases to amaze me, their ability to forgive and be happy in the moment with a friend. ❤

  16. natuurfreak says:

    So great that they find a new home .Thanks ! You’re such a warm person.

  17. I love these stories, Paulette. Bless you for the work you do!

  18. While the doggies are smiling, we’re smiling too 🙂 The reviews are so great again, dear Paulette! Pawkisses for all the doggies and one extra especially for you 🙂 ❤

  19. …so sad for “Old girl Chelsea”…but not every one of these lovely beings can be saved, that much I must remember…still: so sad for her
