Jan 01, 2022Taryn rated it really liked it ****This book is a historical fiction but its based on the true story of Helen stein. What a powerful story it is. Same as any other story from this horrible time in history!! This is a survivors story, filled with pain, abuse and so much more. To the readers surprise you learn so much about Helen and her life. While there was happy moments they are clouded by the outbreak of war and anti semitism.



Kris Rubi5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book ! *****Reviewed in the United States on January 12, 2022 Over the Hedge by Paulette Mahurin
This is a WWII novel. It tells the story of a group of people who helped to save hundreds of Jewish babies that were surely going to die after their families were rounded up by the Nazis. Mothers were quietly asked if they wished to save their small child by allowing Walter to take them to the daycare. Walter doctored the books so no child appeared missing. Once at the daycare, Henriette and her crew made sure they were taken care of and made ready to smuggle to a non-Jewish family who was willing to take the child and raise it as their own. Henriette would quietly pass a child over the hedge of the daycare in the dead of night to Johan who somehow managed to get hundreds of children past the Nazis and to safety. Hundreds of children escaped certain death by the courageous acts of their parents and these heroes. These heroes risked their own lives so that others might live.
This is their story. One of courage, faith and resilience. It is a touching story that will make you cry and have a renewed faith in humanity. God bless these people and the children who escaped to live a life.

Sherrie HansenVINE VOICE5.0 out of 5 stars *****Never Forget! Important Lessons from Days Gone By Reviewed in the United States on January 13, 2022 The characters of OVER THE HEDGE endeared themselves to me so quickly and completely that once I started reading, I couldn’t put Mahurin’s latest book down. Tears were shed, and joy was felt when victories were won and efforts to save Jewish children were successful. One by one until hundreds had been helped, this book was a good reminder that we are called to stand up for what’s right, help those in need, and ensure that this kind of predujice and persecution is never permitted or tolerated again. I applaud Mahurin for continuing to give us eye-opening looks at the past even in a day and age when history is too often forgetten. Touching, beautiful written, I highly recommend OVER THE HEDGE.


Reviewer 98309 ****+

I thought Over the Hedge by Paulette Mahurin was an interesting read. I am giving it four and a half stars.

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.
