190 dogs saved with profits from my books. And what do readers say: “Definitely recommend this book to everyone, should be on the curriculum in all schools…”

My book The Seven Year Dress is continuing to rank in the top 100 best sellers in the kindle bookstore in the literary-fiction-historical, literary fiction, and the young adult categories. I’ve also been ranked by Amazon as top ranking author for two of my books, The Seven Year Dress and To Live Out loud, in the historical fiction category and the Teen/Young Adult category. And  in the literary fiction category for The Seven Year Dress. And  my book His Name Was Ben is #12 on the Amazon Best Sellers in General category. See photos below.

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 Lionel, Texas, Alexander, Miller and Luna (see photo below) out of kill shelters. Thus far in 2016, 190 dogs have been freed. Last year 148 dogs were freed.

AND please for everyone who’s purchased a book could I humbly ask you to write a review when you’ve completed the read. I have just found out that Amazon promotes and ranks books according to number of reviews in addition to sales. Every voice helps spread the word and that is an energy that can help a dog.

Great book

This was a really good book that I was sorry to have finished reading ss soon as I did. I recommend it.

Touching and heart breaking!

How could anyone deny that the Holocaust happened? It was the worst time in history in my opinion. Hitler was an absolute MONSTER! This book was a great example of what one person experienced during that time period. Thank God for the outcome. Millions were not so lucky.

Shelves: fiction
Although this is a fictional story, it likely represents many of the harsh realities and range of emotions of the Holocaust yet the persistence of the will to live and maintenance of this despite all odds. The writing was beautiful despite some of the content being difficult to read about and remember that terrible time of history.

This was a book worth reading. Although it was written during and about one of the most horrific times in history, it is uplifting and tender at the heart. Quick read, one that won’t easily be forgotten.

I enjoyed the seven year dress very much. I’ve read hundreds of historical fiction novels about WWII and the holocaust….this ones another fast read. The author intersperses future facts with her story to make it more educational. I was surprised by the many mentions of masturbating aS I assumed this was for younger readers but I suppose the heroine would have that in common with her readers if they were around that age. I’m just getting old lol

What a story, how did that wonderful woman cope and all the other thousands under hitler and his mad ideas, definitely recommend this book to everyone, should be on the curriculum in all schools so it never happens again.


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.
