RECENT REVIEWS FOR THE SEVEN YEAR DRESS
AMAZON U.S.
on June 28, 2017
Every time I read a book about survivors of the death camps created by the Nazis I am in awe of how they survived and, in return helped others make it through the horrors of all those years. Growing up after what transpired it scares me to know that people are still being tortured for their differences. We have learned very little from those years in what Nazis were able to spread their evil and murder innocent men, women and children.
Helen’s story is one of the most explicit when it came down to her description of the hell she went to and the miraculous strength needed to survive ,..the most basic things that we humans have to help others in need.
I hope others will read this book and pull together to stop the inhumanity we see in world. Hopefully the story will continue to help and be heard for the truth it tells. Books like this should be on the reading lists the high school students are to read. We must not let these stories die, buried in some library.

I have read so many Holocaust stories. They are all memorable but this ranks near the top in my opinion.
Heartbreaking and sad but a satisfying read.

The Seven Year Dress
by Paulette Mahurin (Goodreads Author)

52050297

Dileep Viswanathan’s ***** review  from Bangalore, India

Jun 25, 2017
it was amazing

 

“The rules of our religion did not define us, yet others were defining us by our religion.” Helen was so furious about the way the state treated her community and that was the beginning of something which was referred to as ‘the brutal’ statutory regulations imposed on its citizens ever marked in the history of mankind. This is how fascism also originates, in it’s true sense.

The Seven Year Dress by Paulette Mahurin is a work of fiction which makes you travel through the Nazist Germany and the atrocities created by Hitler when the state turned executioner for its people. When teen-aged Helen has to flee from her family with her brother and friend, the sufferings they had in an underground shelter and then shifted to the concentration camps of Auschwitz and the atrocities they faced there, the blood shed, the murders and the brutal act upon humans are painted viciously in the book. This book gives us nothing new to what we saw about the cruelty of Nazis in books and movies, but the first hand narration of a victim makes this one more emotional.

“You never know a person until you hear his or her story. Stories change how you feel about someone.” – True to the core. A good read.

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.

  1. AAh, so wonderful to see those smiling dogs. Bless you for all that you have been doing for the dogs- such generosity and compassion are much appreciated by all who know you, personally and via your blog.

    • Yvonne, you just made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside with your really sweet words. I tell you it’s such a gift to do something that helps dogs and then spread the good word around. Although my part is really very small (& I mean that) it fills me up like I just moved a mountain off someone. And to share with others who feel good to see it…it is a really great ripple effect. The best part is the number of great people out there helping, it’s vast and wide all around the world. Thank goodness. As always I hope all is well with you and your family, fur kids included. ❤

      • Paulette, thank you for the lovely reply. I know you are modest but gee it would be so wonderful if more people who have the financial abiliy would donate just a small percenatage to animal shelters. So many animals could be saved.

        I’m doing ok but have had so much stress for the past 1 1/2 years. I don’t know how I have survived. Thank you for the good wishes.

      • I know what you mean about wondering how you survived a year and a half of stress. We’ve had some serious medical challenges this end (not with me but immediate family) and it was very stressful. Then everything else piles on to it. I look back and can relate so well to what you aptly stated and shake my head in gratitude that I’m still alive and kicking! Although probably not kicking as high as I used to. I hope you have a good weekend.

  2. So good to see them so happy…improved my day no end!

  3. ivors20 says:

    Grateful that Janey has been rescued, aww, she looks like My Girl Lily. Your mission is absolutely wonderful.

    • Hi ivors20 and thank you for stopping by. Yes, when I look at Janey (and the others but she is so sweet) it’s hard to imagine she was dumped into a kill shelter. I saw the photo of you with Your Girl Lily–the love apparent, forever in our hearts they find their way to stay. Have a great weekend and please give Lily a hug from me. ❤

      • ivors20 says:

        Thankyou, and yes, Lily will be getting lots of cuddles this weekend, it’s only 1C here in Geelong at the moment, brrr… Cheers.

      • Brrrr that’s cold. I just looked up Geelong and see that it’s winter there. Such an interesting exchange to be in differing time zones with differing seasons and even differing days. The one constant no matter where we are, we love our fur babies. She’s sure to keep you warm, literally and figuratively. Stay warm and enjoy.

  4. You made us smile again, Paulette. We are so happy for another bunch of rescued doggies, because of your book. Double Pawkiss for an extraordinary day 🙂 ❤ ❤

    • Ahhh, your sweetness, you are so kind. A small contribution from my books. A big contribution from many others who financially pitched in, rescued, fostered, and ultimately adopted. It’s a vast group far and wide and believe me I’m so happy my books have done well enough that I’m continuing to be able to contribute as much as I have. It’s a wonderful feeling to see a dog freed. Have a happy weekend and double pawkisses right back to ya’ll. 🙂 ❤ ❤

  5. Yay for another bunch of cute, saved pups!

  6. Clowie says:

    It’s so lovely how those sad faces become happy faces! Well done to all involved!

    • It is pretty remarkable, Clowie. Their eyes say so much. And for most of them they chance the minute they see people coming for them. Dogs continue to show us the instant impact love has on another living being. Hope all is well with you and your bipeds and you’re getting out for lots of great summer walks. 🙂

  7. natuurfreak says:

    That’s wonderful.Thanks Paulette

  8. Thanks for following my blog faithfully.
    Congratulations for the book and your wonderful work !

    I am wholehartedly with you.
    Truly
    Vanina Lys
