 RECENT REVIEWS FOR HIS NAME WAS BEN
on May 4, 2018
“His name was Ben” is one of those stories that will stay with you long after the last page is turned. It starts with a story of Sara, who is battling breast cancer. As her condition deteriorates, she starts losing all hope and even desire to keep struggling when two things happen: her doctor announces that she had just been accepted into a new study which has been showing amazing results and, while sitting in Dr. Zimmerman’s waiting room, she sees a man filling out a patient’s form. Ben – she catches a glimpse of his name and number on his paperwork – is seemingly healthy and good-looking, and for the first time in god knows how long Sara feels a spark of interest within her. What follows is an amazing, bitter-sweet story of two people who met in the most unusual circumstances and decided that no matter what fate brings their way, they would try and make the best of what they have, let it be for a few days or years to come.
What I really loved about this story is how real every character felt. By the end,​ I felt like I knew them all personally, and I cried with them over their tragedies and cheered their happiness. The main message of the story – appreciate your life and cherish every day as it can be your last one – is delivered in an extremely powerful way, and I couldn’t help but hope for the best for both characters. Tazzie, Sara’s loyal Rottie, deserves a special mention – she made an absolutely adorable character! A brilliant novel that reads like non-fiction, which I would highly recommend to everyone!
RECENT REVIEWS FOR THE DAY I SAW THE HUMMINGBIRD

Steven Thompson

Apr 12, 2018 Steven Thompson***** rated it it was amazing
A strong tale about freedom, hope, and redemption. We all know the history of the pain of slavery, but what do we know of those who actually got involved to help? Whether driven by compassion or idealism, Mahurim helps capture those characteristics, coupled with the main character’s journey, to offer up a strong story that could be a part of anyone’s learning experience about this piece of history. Well done.

Sad story but well written. Not an “easy read” because of the events. If you enjoy reading historical fiction based on fact,this is a book for you.
AMAZON U.K.
on 6 May 2018
I thought that this book was extremely well written. It describes the extremes of life a person can experience and also the horrors that the human spirit can endure and survive. Very touching.
on 26 April 2018
What a wonderful story unfolds in this book,at times you can sense the pain,heartache,and cruetley inflicted upon others whose reglion was not accepted by others.To survive and tell others,of the hatred,and barbaric conditions,inflected upon these people is a miracle.Yes (Life is a Gift),How others can treat people like this is beyond comprehension.This book is an excellent read and very well written,very emotional and it makes you think,how would l react or survive these horrors.l would strongly recommend this book once you start to read it then,you will say why oh why did this happen,and yet the outside world wasn’t aware of the pain,humiliation,and starvation of these people,just because of there religion and what possessions,they had.

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.

    Great on the dogs rescued and reviews.

  2. Kim says:

    Congratulations on you well-received book and on the rescues.

  3. So grateful for your advocacy of these pets. Kudos.

    • Ahh, thank you. It’s really my pleasure and a joy to help the dogs. I work alongside a very large group of dog loving people. I’m grateful for each and every one of them. And the payback from a happy dogs–there’s just nothing like it. ❤

  4. Bless the people who help these dogs….I was just noting the behaviour problems…and then looking at the freedom photographs. Once the fear recedes so do the problems.

  5. I just bouth a copy of “To Live Out Loud.” I wish your books were on Audible because that’s how I do most of my reading these days. But you never know. Now and again, I actually decide I’m ready to take on print. And I know the Dreyfuss case very well. I read a lot about it when i was a kid and my mother used to talk about it, too. I sometimes forget — my mother was born in 1910 and a lot of things that seem very long ago to me were quite recent for her. For her, even with the horrors of the Holocaust, she still thought of WW 1 as The Big War — an all her generation felt that way. Strange how time affects our recollections of history, isn’t it?

    • Hi Marilyn. Thanks for letting me know. I don’t have any of my books on audio. At some point I need to tackle that. I hope the read is okay for you and that you enjoy. Yes, I know what you mean about the reference to The Great War and having a connection to a parent born around that time. Same with my parents although they never talked to me about the Dreyfus Affair. You may find it interesting that I used the transcript from Zola’s trial to construct some of the courtroom scenes in my book. I tried to stay as close to factual accounts as I could despite bringing in a fictional character as the protagonist. Zola is one of my all time historical heroes for what he did to help another human being. He really put himself out there against the powers that be to right a huge wrong. And yes, it is strange how our recollections of history is impacted by time.

  6. Those ears on Tinkerbella are something else!

  7. Your work ….It is so lovingly personal. ❤❤❤❤❤❤

  8. natuurfreak says:

    Oneindig respect voor al je werk.Je bent een engel voor de honden.Dank.

  9. You are always our Good Read, dear Paulette. We are always happy to see the smiling faces of the doggies who have been rescued, they make us smile too 🙂 Pawkisses for a wonderful day 🙂 ❤

    • Ahh, you sweet Binky & grandma made my day. It’s my pleasure and joy to do what I can to help the dogs. I feel lucky to be able to do my small bit and thank goodness for the vast group of kindhearted animal loving people who help make it possible. tons of pawkisses and wishes for a wonderful day right back at ya. ❤
