RECENT REVIEWS FOR HIS NAME WAS BEN
on July 27, 2018

This book touches so many emotions on so many levels, from sadness, love, heartwarming, heartache, joy and up-lifting that I had to wipe away a tear or two. The story revolves around a wonderful woman named Sarah who is fighting Breast cancer. Being a breast cancer survivor myself, this hit close to home. Everything Sarah was experiencing during her treatment, was spot on. Later in the book when Sarah developed blood clots, again I could relate, having had five clots discovered on my lungs and three behind my knee while taking the drug Tamoxifen as part of my treatment. The fear Sarah felt brought back memories of my own fears.

While going through her cancer treatment, Sarah meets Ben in the waiting room who is also fighting cancer. I have to say, I love Ben’s temperament throughout the entire book. Sarah and Ben develope a beautiful friendship that evolves into a deep love for one another. It’s an amazing love story that is told so well by the author and I as the reader felt it through every page. My only wish was that they had met each other sooner.

I can’t say enough about this book. I finished the book a couple of weeks ago and still find myself thinking about it and I’ll probably still be thinking about it for months to come. When a book does that to you, well it’s a damn good book.

RECENT REVIEWS FOR TO LIVE OUT LOUD
I’ve read a lot about the Dreyfuss case in the past, so I was surprised and very pleased at what a fine piece of writing this truly is. Paulette managed to write a serious book that just felt like a great read. I always admired Zola for being willing to take the abuse poured on him and stay with the truth until he finally was heard. It’s really a great and rather uplifting story. In today’s world, more than ever, we need to remember: bad things happen, but good things can come from them.

RECENT REVIEWS FOR THE SEVEN YEAR DRESS

 

on July 10, 2018
This book is phenomenal. It takes you through a story of a woman who has lost all chances of finding love and compassion to her life due the Nazis. It takes you through her survival of the concentration camp.
RECENT REVIEWS FOR THE DAY I SAW THE HUMMINGBIRD
on July 13, 2018
I thought the book started out a little slow but I kept on reading and got into the charter Oscar. It was a good reminder what man can do to man good and bad.Nice reading. Sue M

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.

  3. davidprosser says:

    Congratulations and well done to you all.
    Huge Hugs

  4. You have the kindest soul Paulette.

  5. The world is lucky to have people like you. I’ve just bought His Name was Ben, and I’m looking forward to reading it.

  6. So many good people about….but do we see anything like this in the mainstream news? Perish the thought.

  7. Love seeing all those adorable pibble faces!

  8. Paulette, it is so wonderful to see all those beautiful dogs that you have sponsored which allowed them to live. It is so sad to see so many Chihuahuas and pit bulls still winding up in shelters because their owners were irresponsible or dumped them after tiring of them. The shelter in my town is brimming with pit bulls, just about weekly. This is despite the fact that we have a low cost spay/neuter clinic, which I am happy to say is always brimming with
    folks who bring in their animals for altering and also vaccinations.

    I applaud your selfless charity for the community.

    All the best,
    Yvonne

  9. Hi Yvonne. So lovely to hear from you. I hope you’re well.
    We have the same situation this end with a low cost spay and neuter clinic but yet the pit and chi population growth continues and they land in kill shelters with too much frequency. Way too many abandoned dogs and cats and other pets.

    Take good care my friend. ❤️

  10. So many good dogs! Yay for all the rescue!

  11. Littlesundog says:

    I am always overwhelmed by the numbers… and the faces of those discarded and homeless. What a joy to see the “before and after” photos. Can you imagine what it must feel like to finally find a place to call home, with love to boot? Those little eyes say so much.Thank you a gazillion times for all that you do, Paulette.

    • Those before photos cause me so much heartache. The after photos lift the pain and I can breathe easier. I think that’s what drives me, those suffering faces caged at no fault of their own. Thank goodness there are a lot of good animal (and nature loving) people like you around to help. Hope you have a good weekend. ❤
