A book to keep you awake until you finish

I’m deeply grateful to everyone who has purchased, read, and taken the time to review one of my books. All profits from my books go to help get dogs like Linus, Scampi, Trinity, Berkley, Wolfie, Lupe, Lauren, and siblings Renoir and Alexia, Chance, Ebony, Happy, Taco and Burton (photos below) out of kill shelters. We’re off to a good start in 2017 with the freedom of these 14 dogs. In in 2016, 250 dogs were freed. In 2015, 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.  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.

Jan 04, 2017 MetLineReader rated it it was amazing

Superb book that leaves you thinking about the characters for long after you’ve finished.

I picked it up on the recommendation of an old schoolfriend. Initially I wasn’t sure where it was going, but once it began to tell the story of Helen Stein, her family and her next-door neighbour, Max, I was transfixed.

A must-read. Its simplicity belies its message and allows the horrors of the Holocaust to be brought to the fore.

5*.

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.

    I always send positive energy out to the rescues… the resilience and love they provide is nothing short of amazing. And so is your work and contribution, Paulette. Thank you so much for all you do. 🙂

    • Thank you! It is something I get great satisfaction out of, helping rescue one dog, let along as many as I’ve been involved in. But the real heroes are the ones that go to the shelters and ensure they dogs land in good homes. Those are the real angels. I just feel lucky to do my small part but oh what a big warmth it gives my heart. I know you must know that feeling with all the loving, good you do. ❤

  10. It’s a thrill to come here and see what has happened in just another week, dear Paulette. Fantastic! Poor doggie that has been attacked by the coyote, but good to hear that he is okay now. Double Pawkisses for a Happy Monday 🙂 ❤

    • Yes that little Wolfie was sure lucky that he was rescued and is being taken really good care of. He certainly is a lucky one to be helped medically and have his life saved. I’m sure he’ll repay it a million times over with licks and wags. I was so happy to see the movement to rescue these dogs. There are just so many big-hearted people out there helping with this effort–all around the world. For dogs, cats (like you sweetie), horses, etc. Bless them all! Triple pawkisses back to you for a great week. 🙂 ❤

  11. They are all so cute! Taco really looks comfortable!

  12. That’s more than one dog a day so far – awesome!

  13. Doggy angels all around you, P! ❤
