AMAZON RANKING TOP 100 LITERARY FICTION-HISTORICAL: “This story is inspiring, set in a time which many of us cannot even think to understand the atrocities.”

My book is in the top 1% for sales on Amazon Kindle Store and just made the top 100 for the literary-fiction-historical category. I’m deeply grateful for everyone who has purchased, read, and taken the time to review my book. In the name of tolerance, a special thank you also to everyone who has spread the word to help promote this book.  All profits from my books go to help get dogs like Searra and Daisy (featured below) out of kill shelters. Thus far in 2016, 52 dogs have been freed. Last year 148 dogs were freed.

This author has a brilliant knack of pulling you deep into the story, her retelling of historical events is both factual and heart wrenching. I’d read her previous work – To Live Out Loud – which I absolutely loved, but I think she has excelled herself with the Seven Year Dress.

This story is inspiring, set in a time which many of us cannot even think to understand the atrocities that were being experienced by thousands in camps. Paulette expresses herself articulately and artfully in a way that respects the history, tugs on your heart and pulls you deep into the story to build understanding.

I highly recommend this book and this author’s writing style.

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.

    It just keeps getting better and better for you and your latest book, doesn’t it. This has me anxious to get at my copy, which I haven’t been able to do as of now, what with the tedious finalizing work of my 13th book of poems. Soon I hope… In the meantime, once again Bravo!
