Format: Kindle EditionVerified Purchase
In the early 19th century, New York City was running amok with immigrants, indigents, lunatics and mistresses of wealthy men who had no shortage of skeletons in their closets. To accommodate the growing need to put society’s “blemishes” out of sight, scores of defenseless individuals were packed off to a life sentence at Blackwell’s Island Asylum where they were not only starved and routinely tortured but also guarded by sadistic criminals who regarded them as easy prey. It’s a certainty that if one wasn’t crazy when she went in, the oppressive conditions and cruelty she endured would make her so with the passage of years.
The arrival of yet another hapless young woman in 1887 was registered by the asylum staff as nothing more than fresh blood to humiliate and victimize. Little did any of them suspect that the new arrival who asked a tumble of questions and seemed to take delight in sassing her keepers was an intrepid female journalist named Nellie Bly. Taking the ultimate risk of feigning craziness, it was Nellie’s quest—a quest which proved successful—to witness first-hand a litany of abuses wrought by a corrupt system.
Mahurin’s compelling novel reflects extensive research and meticulous attention to detail. Although it is not without graphic depictions of what was going on behind the asylum walls, it’s a must-read story of a real-life heroine who was able to turn the tables on an administration that was all too willing to turn its back on those without a voice.

Recommend to fans of historical fiction.
What I love about Mahurin’s books is how she takes a real incident and forges a fictional story that enhances the truth. Her books are well-researched and I always feel I’ve learned something new alongside enjoying the read.
This book was inspired by an undercover operation carried out by a female journalist, Nellie Bly into the terrible conditions in a women’s mental asylum on Blackwell Island, New York. But the story is about the women held in the asylum, especially Klara a young Jewish girl who had fled Russia after the Kiev Pogrom. Instead of finding understanding she is the victim of a robbery and sent to the asylum as without knowing English she was unable to defend herself.
The story isn’t for the faint-hearted. The inmates, sane and insane suffered barbaric cruelty. However, the women found friendship and hope amongst themselves and from a few kindly nurses.
Satisfying, interesting read.

it was amazing *****

 

Reviewed on behalf of Readers’ Favorite

A Different Kind of Angel by Paulette Mahurin commences with the introduction of the reader to Klara, an immigrant who has fled Russia from the pogroms of the late 1880s. She arrives in New York, alone, having lost her father, her last living relative, on the long journey to America. The victim of an attack, and unable to speak English to explain what has happened, Klara is unjustly accused of being insane and sentenced to an indefinite term on Blackwell’s Asylum. There, she struggles to overcome the injustices foisted upon her, until one day, a new woman arrives who proves to be more than just another cog in Klara’s woeful story.

There was something entirely captivating about Paulette Mahurin’s novel, A Different Kind of Angel. It was interesting to see the expose of Nellie Bly told through the eyes of a fictional inmate at the asylum. It was an all too common practice to lock women up who did not fit into the mold of the time, dating back further than the setting of Mahurin’s novel. It has prompted me to want to read more about Nellie Bly and how she broke down barriers, bringing light to the inhumane treatment of the women incarcerated on Blackwell’s Island. Mahurin touches on how misunderstanding often leads to fear, in the case of Klara. Because they perceived her to be drunk, they made automatic judgments about her. I would certainly recommend this novel to anyone with an interest in the history of how barriers were broken down in the treatment of those with mental illnesses.

Wow…just wow…this book is so heartfelt and touching and yes scary and sad all at the same time. When you hear the word Cancer, you think all the worst possible outcomes, but this story proves that life is what you make of it and should be charished and lived to the fullest no matter your circumstances. Above all it shows that love can and does happen in it’s own time. This is a must read! I do suggest setting aside large chunks of time to read this because you wont want to put it down!

This was a tough read, but well worth it. This was the first book I had read by this author and will definitely be picking up more books by her. The journey of Sara and Ben is a tough one, but radiates of finding love and how much it can change your life if you open yourself up. I knew the ending but kept hoping that it would be different as I wanted to see so much of Sara and Ben’s life. This is definitely a book I would recommend to others.

The title of this books lets you know exactly what you’re about to read.
At first I didn’t think the title was a good idea but as I read through the book I began to appreciate the title and its revelation on what was to come, I was prepared then for the end.
This is a beautifully written story of real love in a real life situation. I found it touching and moving.
This is a book that deserves to be read.

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. ❤ What a year for the pups thanks to Paulette 🙂

  4. Thank you for all the work you put in to help save these poor dogs. I note the mention of ‘bites’….what else does a scared and previously mistreated animal do to try to defend itself…

  5. Jean-Jacques says:

    670 dogs, that is terrific…! To add my two cents worth of help, and since I so enjoyed your first five books, as soon as I finish this message I will be order your sixth and latest book, A Different Kind of Angel. Its story line has me completely intrigued, and anxious read it.
    Happy New Year… and deserved success in the ongoing sales of all of your six books so that you may continue the help you give to dogs in need. May good fortune be with you in this humane undertaking of yours, dear Paulette Mahurin.

  6. I just had to look at all the pics of very lucky dogs who were saved due to your unwavering generosity. All the dogs are simply beautiful. Thank you, for what you do for your community.

  7. Clanmother says:

    What you do inspires others to follow in your footsteps. Today, I met a young family who had adopted a young dog – rescued from a kill shelter. This past year, my niece and her fiancé adopted a young dog – also rescued from a kill shelter. Thank you!!! Grateful we are entering 2019 together!

  8. Christy B says:
