During one of the darkest times in human history when millions of innocent Jews and others deemed “undesirables” were being sent to concentration camps to be brutality worked to death or slaughtered, a group of Dutch resistance workers rose up against the atrocities. Their resistance to the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands created a vast counterintelligence, domestic sabotage, and communications network to help hide Jewish people from German authorities. The Old Gilt Clock is the story of how one Dutch resistance member, Willem Arondéus,  risked his life to defy the Nazis’ plans to identify and deport hundreds of thousands of Dutch Jews. Arondéus’ courage is largely forgotten by history, but not by the Jewish and Dutch people. Written by the award-winning international Amazon bestselling author of The Seven Year Dress, comes a story of Arondéus’ courageous struggle to stand up to the unimaginable evil designs of Hitler. It is also a story about friendships formed in the Dutch resistance movement, their joys and sorrows, their wins and losses, their loves and betrayals, and ultimately their resilience to oppose tyranny and oppression when millions stood silent condoning heinous behavior. Thousands are alive today because of these brave, compassionate men and women.





It is also available on all other Amazon sites around the world. If you have any trouble with purchasing it, please let me know.







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.

  2. Ordering it for my Kindle. You’ve been busy again!
    Did you know that my mother was involved in making radios for both French and Dutch resistance groups?

    Looks to be ever so interesting and of course the subject seemingly has all the elements of a page turner. Based on all of this lady’s previous which I’ve read and thoroughly enjoyed, this one also sounds like a real winner, that also has the makings of a Best Seller. Can’t wait to read this newest book of Paulette Mahurin’s, as its title, The Old Guilt Clock, and its period story arouses ones curiosity!

  4. Congrats on another no-doubt terrific book!

  5. CONGRATULATIONS PAULETTE. I look forward to reading this book. You know I am a HUGE fan.

  6. Thank you so much. I’d love for you to read it. I remember that you shared something about him on facebook a while back. I haven’t forgotten. Arondeus was an amazing historical hero. ❤

  7. I will see if i can get a copy of this one. The Danish resistance was also something special. We knew one of the leaders of that group of me. He was an exchange professor at my college and lived across the street from us.

  8. The story is deeply touching. I could go on and on about the existence of a similar cabal which exist today. There time is short. They’ve tested their powers and are pondering. They will never get away with what they have done or to become a full nazi existence. I hope you are enjoying the season. Well wishes in all of your endeavors.

  9. Looking forward to this Paulette!
