I have always admired Paulette Mahurin’s way to write about difficult issues with a way that can only be described captivating and gripping. To Live Out Loud was, once again, a winner. Emile Zola, one of the protagonists, is a voice of truth. A dedicated ‘fighter’ both behind the scenes and in the frontline, bringing the history alive to the reader.

The author’s ‘handprint’ is easily recognizable with the skillful way she hooks the reader from the page one, the ink leaking the praise for life as the message of this story gets printed into the brains of the readers. Live out loud.

This was a fast, interesting read, and I highly recommend this to all historical fiction lovers as well as any reader who is looking for a meaningful read!




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.

  1. My apologies for the misaligned photos. I tried to correct several times to no success.

  2. Loved these photos, Paw! And that one of these precious babies is named Baby, too! I wish each of them and their new parents long happy lives together. Such wonderful work you do.

    • Aww, yes Baby. Our hearts are united in remembering your beautiful girl. This Baby is so loved, her family sent a ton of photos. I didn’t show the one of her being massaged in the shower or out shopping for a new sweater. Really warms my heart all these safe dogs. ❤

    Your writing success and the cause it serves is what your pictures confirms. The misalignment, you alone will have noticed, is interdental…

    • Thank you my friend. I’m technically challenged and wondered if I should hold the post but then opted to just let it be seen as is. I’m thinking of taking a computer class in the local college. Perhaps that will help? Sending special hugs to you, Marianne, and your fur babies. ❤

  17. dilipnaidu says:

    Fascinating! These innocent ones deserve every bit of love and care they are getting and more!

    • Aww, yes they sure do. And the beauty of it all is they give it back in abundance. The wonder of what love can do is seen in the resilience of a dog’s heart to forgive when given the chance at life. Something that fills my heart. Thank you for stopping by. ❤

  18. Clowie says:

    It’s lovely to see them going to new homes. I hope they’ll all be very happy.

  19. So nice to see dogs who are being loved for a change. I wish there were homes for them all.
