RECENT REVIEWS FOR THE DAY I SAW THE HUMMINGBIRD
AMAZON U.S.
on May 28, 2018
Do you want to fall in love? Get your copy of Paulette Mahurin’s “The Day I Saw the Hummingbird,” and I guarantee that you will fall head over heels in love with Oscar, Mahurin’s very young Negro slave who is the center of this story. Mahurin has outdone herself with this novel; among her extraordinary literary achievements, this is her best, in my opinion. I do not rest on my laurels, however, because I know she will wow her readers yet again. “The Day I Saw the Hummingbird” will be hard to top, however. With time, it just might prove to be her masterpiece.
on May 7, 2018
Paulette never disappoints. She is a master story teller. This story will likely haunt you, it has lingered with me for several months now. The characters are very realistic as are the scenes she writes about. I almost felt like I walked the trail with Oscar and smelled what he did, saw what he did, and felt the exhaustion he did. Certainly it’s a story about slavery, but it is also a story about humanity and determination. It does not have a predictable, sappy ending -which I appreciated.
AMAZON U.K.
on 25 May 2018

Paulette Mahurin is a quality historical novelist who always writes about engrossing subjects and once again she triumphs with The Day I Saw the Hummingbird.

The story is, at times, harrowing, but always engrossing. The descriptions are realistic and down to earth. The hardships these people endured were cruel in the extreme, yet the author always manages to offer moments of hope. Her prose reveals that she is truly in touch with her subject and the book is all the stronger for that.

Coincidentally, I watched To Kill a Mockingbird on DVD for the first time while reading this book, and Garrow’s Law, which touches on the same subject. Both are wonderful productions and The Day I Saw the Hummingbird sits comfortably with them.

RECENT REVIEWS FOR THE SEVEN YEAR DRESS

A true story that puts you right I the middle of the holocaust. The descriptive writing made you feel a part of the horror and made you realize this is a part of history we must never forget or repeat.
on May 16, 2018
This book has received a Discovering Diamonds Review:
Helen Hollick
founder #DDRevs
“The author has not held back in any way and deals sensitively yet matter-of-factly with the atrocities and the sheer spirit of those who had the will and the almost superman-type strength to survive.”
AMAZON CANADA

The horrors of war and the ills of what they lived through are so clearly brought to the readers mind. Well written story, makes my heart ache for all that suffered.

Having read so many books on the holocaust I wasn’t expecting this one to be any different but i was pleasantly surprised. The story telling is sharp with a factual objectivity that in some ways makes the narrative far more real. It isn’t just a story of pain and suffering but one of life, hope and joy.

This is a bittersweet story of two people meeting in the oncologist’s office and how their relationship developed from there. Much more than a love story begun in the knowledge that life may be short with the need to take each day for what it could bring.

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.

  8. YEAH! 🎉🎉🎉Now we’re having a great weekend 🙂 Pawkisses for a wonderful weekend, dear Paulette 🙂 ❤

  9. So pleased for the friends and siblings rescued together.

    • Me too, Helen. When I see a bonded pair I pledge to keep them together. I remember one pair that were in a kennel together for a long time. They hadn’t come in together but they bonded. One was a big blind dog, the other a little tiny thing. The little one became the eyes for the big dog. Together, they were something wonderful to behold. When they were rescued together and kept together I was so happy. The old ones, the sick one, the overly frightened ones that need a lot of loving attention; the people who rescue them are angels. Happy weekend to you Leo and your gang. ❤
