RECENT REVIEWS FOR THE PERSECUTION OF MILDRED DUNLAP

on January 12, 2017
Good book, and I enjoyed the style of writing. Very real situations in real life back in the early times. The topic of two women being together is an issue in the book but it was done very well and don’t think it will offend anyone. Recommend it

on January 10, 2017

Gossip, in more ways, is worse than murder, some say. The rippling effects of gossip can have a weak subject wishing for death; even materializing it for themselves.

The story is set in the 19th century; goes to show that man doesn’t learn his/her lessons on what is good and what is bad. Centuries and eons of technologies later, many among us still judge; many still look down on people; many still can’t keep opinions in check; many still come to conclusions the basis for which are self-serving speculations. Indeed, it’s a sad plight if we look at it this way. One good thing in the present time, the marginalized now have a voice in many parts of the world. A lot of people and countries take up advocacies for equality and against discrimination. It’s not perfect but it’s a big thing from the situation in the book.

The scenario in the book happened at the same time when Oscar Wilde was imprisoned because of having relations with another man. A lot of thought-provoking quotes from this famed playwright abound; at least one per chapter. They make the readers think twice before passing judgment on Mildred Dunlap, the main character who was in the same predicament as Mr. Wilde.

Paulette Mahurin is an engaging writer; another in my list to watch out for.

 

 

 

RECENT REVIEWS FOR THE SEVEN YEAR DRESS

on January 12, 2017
Whenever I read a book about the Holocaust, I can’t help but be reflective as well as thankful for the life I’ve had. It’s so unfair that so many people suffered so much hardship and sadness during the war, and yet amazingly there is still hope and kindness to be found amongst it all. The Seven Year Dress is a well written story, I liked the way Helen was introduced and how her story flowed on from there and I totally recommend this book for all fans of historical fiction.
on January 11, 2017
I read the book in one day. The story was on near of such sadness , I felt I was there.
on January 10, 2017
There are really no words to describe the horrific torture and murder of millions of innocent victims. Paulette Mahurin has written a heartbreaking, eye opening novel that tells with brutal honesty what occurred. I will never forget this book.
on January 9, 2017
I DONT USUALLY READ ANYTHING ABOUT THE HOLOCAUST, BUT THIS STORY WAS VERY WELL WRITTEN.

Must read. I couldn’t stop until I was done. Very good book that will bring out so many emotions. Wonderful!
on January 9, 2017
Even though the novel is labeled historic fiction, the atrocities that happened to the “undesirables” in the concentration camps is very real.and described in a way that is heart breaking. The book is slow moving at first, but when the main character Helen is immersed in the horrific treatment received by Jewish people it is hard to stop reading.

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.
