DEFINITELY GOING TO BE A HAPPY NEW YEAR FOR 123 DOGS

 

Thank you to all who have purchased one of my books and taken the time to write a review. All profits from my books go to help dogs like these. Current count for 2015 is 123 dogs rescued from kills shelters. It’s definitely going to be a very happy new year for a lot of families. I’m so grateful for anyone who’s helped with this effort in any way.

RECENT REVIEWS

  •  TO LIVE OUT LOUD:
 
on December 7, 2015

The author of ‘To Live Out Loud’ took an infamous historical moment and brought it to life. This was not an easy undertaking. Paulette Mahurin has the skill to enlighten and educate readers without boring them. When I recall the dreary lessons about Alfred Drefus at school, I wish it could have been presented in this way. What a difference it would have made!

Emile Zola, the highly acclaimed writer, does everything in his power for Alfred Drefus, the Jewish officer accused of treason by the French government. He even endangers his own liberty by publishing an article about the injustice of the French military. It’s not often that one reads of someone who will do whatever he can to defend a stranger in order to correct the injustice done to this person.

Zola’s elderly bachelor friend Charles Mandonette is both the narrator and Emile Zola’s interpreter. His role in the novel is to bring the reader into the world where deep-rooted anti-Semitism prevails in France and where an innocent man can’t receive justice.

Mahurin is a prolific writer. One of my most favorite books of all times is her heartbreaking novel, ‘His Name was Ben’. Anyone who hasn’t read the novel, ‘His Name was Ben’, is missing out.

on December 2, 2015

How far would you go to prove the innocence of a person you didn’t even know? This is the question posed in To Live Out Loud, a semi-fictionalized account of the trial of Emile Zola who courageously stood to expose the truth in the imprisonment of Alfred Dreyfus, who was wrongly accused of military espionage.

The book is a first person account told from the point of view of a fictional close friend of Zola’s. The author does a good job of melding historical fact with poetic license to produce a thoroughly enjoyable and moving picture of the events. Even though it takes place over one hundred years ago, one can almost feel as if it is taking place today, as many of the same themes of injustice, judicial cover up and social prejudice are things we are still fighting today.

To Live Out Loud proves to be an eye opening and unique look into one of history’s biggest injustices.

 

HIS NAME WAS BEN

on December 8, 2015
The synopsis of this book grabbed me and having read this author before I knew I was in for a treat. It started good, with the introduction to Sara and her battle with cancer, before long we had met Ben and then the story delved into the beginning of their relationship and the hurdles both of them overcame to find each other. It is a heartbreaking love story and one where you mostly know the outcome won’t be good, but you still find yourself hoping that their love will conquer all. I really enjoyed it and would recommend people to check out this author. She writes a good story, even if it does make you cry!

Love is eternal.

Many of us have lost loved ones to cancer and we are shaken by their pain and suffering. This story shows us another way to deal with this dreaded disease by way of two people who fall in love and work through their angst with their families. While the other supports their internal struggle each of them finds a way to become whole and bring closure to their dysfunctional parents.

 

THE PERSECUTION OF MILDRED DUNLAP

Sam

One of my favourite books of all time. Lots of stories interwoven and charismatic characters to keep the reader intrigued and involved. So pleased I came across this hidden gem.
REVIEW AND PURCHASE LINK FOR ALL MY BOOKS:

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.

    Reblogged this on Ms M's Bookshelf and commented:
    Paulette Mahurin is an author/blogger who lives in California. She has penned a number of books and while I haven’t as yet read them all, I have read two that just blew me away. She does extensive research for her historical fiction novels and makes them come alive. The proceeds from her books help dogs to come alive. She is a generous, caring person who helps to rescue dogs from a kill shelter in her area and this reblog shows you just some of the many dogs who have been rescued this year. Please read my Sunday reblog and then choose a book to purchase because doing so will not only help rescue dogs but you will enjoy reading them immensely. Enjoy!

  11. Thank you so much for your generous heart in sharing this and highlighting the work we do to help get dogs out of kill shelters. It’s acts of kindness like this that make the world a better place. Wishing you very peaceful and happy holidays. Love, Paulette

    Blessings to all the rescuers.

    • Thank you so much for your support, Michelle. Very grateful for anyone who helps shine a light or involves themselves in any way to help a dog get out of a kill shelter. ❤

      • I am a long-time supporter of our local animal shelter ( The ARL of Iowa). Although they are not a no-kill shelter, they do their absolute best to find forever and/or foster homes for the thousands of pets they serve each year. I think people like you and all those who dedicate themselves to animal welfare are incredible examples of what we should all strive to be. Happy New Year to you!

      • I’m so happy to hear you’re a long-time supporter of your local shelter. And trust me I know how much all animal rescue shelters do to try to adopt out their animals, and for this, for ever life saved my heart fills with more gratitude. There are a lot of good people in the world doing their small and large parts to make it a better place, whether it be with animals, nature, or humans. Have a happy and peaceful New Year, Michelle. ❤
