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 Jesse, Lianda, Darla, Martha, Tolly, Eloisa, Chandra, Cash, Cujo, Chi Chi, Flo, Ambrosia, Colin, Denver, Mikey, Savannah, Gabe, Harrison, Chelsey, Geisha (see photos below) out of kill shelters. So far in 2017 we’ve helped free 480 dogs. In 2016, 250 dogs were freed. In 2015, 148 dogs were freed.

RECENT REVIEWS FOR THE SEVEN YEAR DRESS
on May 15, 2017
Excellent book! I read it in one sitting! I would definitely recommend it…even though a fictional story…the events occurred multiple times over during one of the worst periods of history!
on May 10, 2017

A must read.

In 1919, Helen Stein born to a Jewish family in Berlin, Germany and raised with love with her three siblings. She is happy to find her best friend in Max; forced to play a role in the German army. The story weaved during the time of World War II. How a girl in Auschwitz tortured and tormented, seeing death and brutality, midst of blood bath and hypocrites mocking and laughing at the pain of the people and finding pleasure in hurting and killing people whose only crime is that they are Jews and in a position of helplessness.

A treat to historical fiction reader. It is not only about history and the story interweaved around the period. The way the story unfolds and captivates the reader is phenomenal. The author put the well-researched documented historical facts remarkably. The book is admirable and brilliant. The story touched the heart of the readers and compels to ask what kind of humans would do such barbaric act with another human.

on May 8, 2017

A brilliant writer of books possesses many qualities: a journalist’s nose for a great story and the chops to tell it superbly; a professor’s acute facility for language; a Pulitzer Prize winner’s razor sharp mind that intuits every necessary plot angle; a mystic’s steadfast soul charging headlong into its matchless destiny; and a warrior’s unwavering courage despite any odds, any costs. Author Paulette Mahurin embodies all of those qualities. The part of her I admire the most, however, is her fearlessness–that brave heart–that heart that goes places too many other authors avoid for fear of the consequences to their career, their adherence to political correctness–places that need exposing to tell the whole truth. Mahurin sees injustice; she hates injustice; she wants to right injustice, and she proclaims it to the world in her writing. She wants to make a difference, and I have to believe she does just that, and she does it extraordinarily well in her “The Seven Year Dress.”

I am a student of World War II. I have a library overflowing with tomes on the subject, both non-fiction and fiction. This excellent work of historical fiction will hold a special place among them, and is one I will return to again and again.

MARTHA now MOLLY Screen Shot 2017-05-07 at 7.07.41 AM
Martha has been rescued. Note from the rescue group Paws for Life about Martha: “Fyi: MARTHA was one of 18 dogs confiscated from a drug house. It was very obvious upon rescuing this very timid shy beauty that she had been used to breed her entire life. Upon arriving at her fosters house she quickly made it known she missed her pups as she would gather up to 8 toys at a time and take them to her crate where she would look after and protect. Now 2 weeks and 2 days later she is blooming she has dropped her shyness and shed her pain of having her pups taken from her way too soon.

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.
