RECENT REVIEWS FOR THE DAY I SAW THE HUMMINGBIRD
on December 25, 2017
I am a huge fan of Paulette Mahurin’s, so first off, I must comment on her book titles: They’re glorious, all five titles drawing me into themes of injustice and triumph, with wonderful lines like this one from The Day I Saw the Hummingbird, “But you keep them insides mighty,” to resolutions that keep me thinking long after the last pages are turned. The Day I Saw the Hummingbird is haunting. It is relevant, necessary history.

Paulette hasn’t missed a beat, being consistent with the quality of authorship creatively, with that ability to capture and hold the readers attention to the fullest. A great writer, telling captivating stories. Impossible to not enjoy. Terrific!

Paulette Mahurin has delivered another fantastic celebration of the human spirit in this latest novel. From the uplifting cover to the perceptive reflections, this is a well written and insightful look at a bygone era. You know a gifted writer when you’re left wanting more and when you’re still thinking about some of what the characters have endured after you finish reading.
What I especially loved is that it showed the very real impact of the subject matter. There’s no real flat resolution, but rather the suggestion that life is life and that it will rumble on out with these pages. That’s not to say that it doesn’t have a sublime conclusion, because it really does. It’s really hard to find fault because the story, the characters and the writing itself is so moving.
If you haven’t read any of Mahurin’s work, you should check it out. This isn’t my first experience of this very gifted lady, and I’m certain it won’t be my last.
Free as a hummingbird
Oscar was born into slavery. He never really knew his father but was extremely close with his mother until she passed away. Once she died Oscar decided to go for the freedom they always talked and dreamed about. This is his story of using the Underground Railroad to get to Freedom. This is an emotional yet inspiring story that is sadly part of our history.
Deep and thought provoking
This book is an absolute must read. The cover caught my attention initially, but when I started to read, seeing the world from a black slaves point of view, my mind was opened into a whole new level of horror that these poor souls suffered through.
I won’t give away any spoilers but this is an excellent journey watching one boys life and escape from slave to freedom.

I have read three of Paulette books~ I loved them all .~but I couldn’t put this down~ she made Helen so alive.~ thank you ~
may we never forget
on 24 December 2017
This is quite a gruelling book to read, however, I couldn’t put it down. As it is based on fact it makes you think about mankind’s inhumanity to others and how it is still going on even now. The style of the writing is also easy to read.

This was a great story. It was interesting to see how homosexuality was treated in that time period and in that place.
