2018 is off to a good start with 11 dogs rescued from kill shelters

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 Sheena, Huckleberry, Azlyn, Amos, Brielle, Bernard, Minimini, Levi, Ranger, Allie & Casper (see photos below) out of kill shelters. So far in 2018, 11 dogs have been rescued. In 2017 we’ve helped free 904 dogs. 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.

RECENT REVIEWS FOR THE DAY I SAW THE HUMMINGBIRD
AMAZON U.S.
on January 11, 2018
This is the second book I have read by this author and I have to say I am fast becoming a fan. Deeply poignant, difficult to read at times, this historical novel possesses a depth of emotion that comes from some place special. It takes skill to write a book but talent to tell a story and this is a superb story told with flair. I am often distracted by small things in books I read but in truth I couldn’t have been distracted in the case of this story. The narrative simply grabs you and never lets go. A great read, highly recommended.

I’ve read several of Paulette Mahurin’s books and really enjoyed them all, but The Day of the Hummingbird truly blew me away. The writing is beautiful and the story gripping and immensely powerful. Oscar’s moving story is told through evocative imagery and prose and the characters are so real they stir up plenty of emotion. This is not an easy read but it’s a very important one. It’s a book I won’t soon forget.

Start to finish very well written. Certainly held my attention from the beginning. Finished it in a weekend, and shared the story with my family, something I rarely do after reading a book.
RECENT REVIEW FOR TO LIVE OUT LOUD
AMAZON U.S.
on January 3, 2018
To Live Out Loud takes an actual event in human history, The Dreyfus Affair, and lays it out in clear, concise terms that any reader can understand. More importantly, the reader can relate to what is happening and becomes involved in the search for truth and the desire for change. So often history repeats itself, and although this story takes place in 1895 France, it could easily be today, right here in America. It is a remarkable historical fiction that truly should be a must read for everyone.
RECENT REVIEWS FOR THE PERSECUTION OF MILDRED DUNLAP
on January 13, 2018
I read a lot of books and of course everyone has their own likes and dislikes and we never see things eye-to-eye; however, I would have a difficult time figuring out how someone would not like this book. It is so beautifully written and the message is so deep and so very important. As the blurb on this book says, “Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for gross indecency under Britain’s recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense” and Paulette Mahurin weaves that bit of history into her story and message about so many (what I believe to be) unnecessary evils in our society. Mahurin so adeptly uses quotes from Oscar Wilde that somehow breathe life into and just fit each chapter perfectly that they “introduce.”

Mildred lives in a small town in Nevada and she lives with her cousin Edra. But the two women live in secret regarding the type of relationship they have as they are lovers. One can only imagine to what depths they’d have to go to in order to keep that secret in a small town. The author uses their story more as a way to weave her message to the readers that she so skillfully does. Being fearful of what might happen if they are found out, Mildred uses a man named Charley in order to put up a front of being a straight woman. Their story becomes quite complicated and intricate.

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.

    Congratulations on all the great reviews! It’s lovely to see all these dogs getting a chance to be happy.

    I hope you’re all safe and well. We keep hearing bad news from your part of the world.

    • Thank you so much, Clowie and bipeds. It’s been pretty rough over here, first with fires and then the next city over the horrific floods. It’s hard to concentrate on much else with all that is going on but I have to keep at it. Helping the dogs is a great way to take my attention on all the devastation. There’s so much world-wide that is heartbreaking and I guess the best we can all do is try, no matter what, to continue to live our best lives. Hope all are well you end. Happy New Year. ❤
