I have read several books about the Holocaust and varied personal memoirs of men,women,and children who survived to tell their story.

RECENT REVIEWS FOR HIS NAME WAS BEN
AMAZON U.K.

 

on 2 July 2018
A moving and elegantly-written love story about two cancer patients who meet and fall in love. Not knowing how much time on earth either of them have, they approach their new relationship with wondrous eyes and gratitude for every moment. Taking the time to work through their family issues, they find a level of intimacy neither has previously found before. This was worth reading for the good writing and the moving story.

 RECENT REVIEWS FOR THE SEVEN YEAR DRESS
AMAZON U.S.
on June 11, 2018
I very much enjoyed reading this book. Even though it is fiction the horrific crimes against humanity were real and we should never forget that.
on June 8, 2018
I truly enjoyed this book! So much from the heart and so descriptive as to the events of her seven yrs under Hitler’s rule. I kept hoping against hope that Max would make it to the end of the book. But then, I thought the same of Ben.
AMAZON U.K.
on 14 June 2018

There are many eras in history where one stops and thinks: Could I have survived in those days? Had I been born Jewish, lived in Berlin during the rise of Hitler and ended up in Auschwitz is something I have always wondered about. Paulette Mahurin has pretty much convinced me that I would not have. Fortunately, Helen Stein, the book’s main character, did.

Based on a true person, Helen tells her story to a young student nurse to whom she rents a room and who has noticed the damning tattoo on her forearm.

Prior to the war, Helen leads a comfortable enough life, until her father, who works for the German Government, is dismissed, simply for being Jewish. Life becomes more and more difficult. Helen has a friend, though, in the Nazi Youth, Max, who only joins because he is homosexual and feels that this course of action is the best way to hide his ‘frailties’.

When the hatred escalates, Max aids Helen and her brother Ben to escape at great danger to himself and hides them in a derelict farm belonging to his family. For four years they live there in fear that one day they will be discovered. That day arrives and they are transported to Auschwitz.

This a most powerful and compelling novel; the violence is never graphic, but the horror and threat of it as well as the implied violence will remain with the reader long after the last page has been reached. 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 inhuman strength to survive.

I thoroughly recommend this book, despite its harrowing nature, to anyone interested in this shameful period of human history and are curious to know what it was really like.

(Reviewed for Discovering Diamonds blogspot)

GOODREADS

Laura

May 30, 2018Laura**** rated it really liked it

Shelves: four-star

Although this was a fictional novel set during the Holocaust era, it read very much in the style of a real memoir. A relatively short story, but gripping all the same. Much of the aspects within the book have been taken from real life accounts of concentration camp survivors. It makes for uncomfortable reading at times.

This was the first book by this author I have read, and I would be tempted to read more by her. Her characters are realistic and her writing style and tone make the reading experience an easy one, despite the heavy subject matter.

A recommended read for fans of historical fiction and World War Two novels.

A well written emotional journey. I became invested in these realistic characters. His Name was Ben is a unique type of romance. It is a difficult topic with a beautiful lesson. Congrats to the author on a wonderful job. I highly recommend it.

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

on May 17, 2018
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.

May 11, 2018 Maneesha Chadha**** rated it really liked it
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.
RECENT REVIEWS FOR HIS NAME WAS BEN

on 28 May 2018
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.

 RECENT REVIEWS FOR HIS NAME WAS BEN
on May 4, 2018
“His name was Ben” is one of those stories that will stay with you long after the last page is turned. It starts with a story of Sara, who is battling breast cancer. As her condition deteriorates, she starts losing all hope and even desire to keep struggling when two things happen: her doctor announces that she had just been accepted into a new study which has been showing amazing results and, while sitting in Dr. Zimmerman’s waiting room, she sees a man filling out a patient’s form. Ben – she catches a glimpse of his name and number on his paperwork – is seemingly healthy and good-looking, and for the first time in god knows how long Sara feels a spark of interest within her. What follows is an amazing, bitter-sweet story of two people who met in the most unusual circumstances and decided that no matter what fate brings their way, they would try and make the best of what they have, let it be for a few days or years to come.
What I really loved about this story is how real every character felt. By the end,​ I felt like I knew them all personally, and I cried with them over their tragedies and cheered their happiness. The main message of the story – appreciate your life and cherish every day as it can be your last one – is delivered in an extremely powerful way, and I couldn’t help but hope for the best for both characters. Tazzie, Sara’s loyal Rottie, deserves a special mention – she made an absolutely adorable character! A brilliant novel that reads like non-fiction, which I would highly recommend to everyone!

Apr 12, 2018 Steven Thompson***** rated it it was amazing
A strong tale about freedom, hope, and redemption. We all know the history of the pain of slavery, but what do we know of those who actually got involved to help? Whether driven by compassion or idealism, Mahurim helps capture those characteristics, coupled with the main character’s journey, to offer up a strong story that could be a part of anyone’s learning experience about this piece of history. Well done.

Sad story but well written. Not an “easy read” because of the events. If you enjoy reading historical fiction based on fact,this is a book for you.

I thought that this book was extremely well written. It describes the extremes of life a person can experience and also the horrors that the human spirit can endure and survive. Very touching.
on 26 April 2018
What a wonderful story unfolds in this book,at times you can sense the pain,heartache,and cruetley inflicted upon others whose reglion was not accepted by others.To survive and tell others,of the hatred,and barbaric conditions,inflected upon these people is a miracle.Yes (Life is a Gift),How others can treat people like this is beyond comprehension.This book is an excellent read and very well written,very emotional and it makes you think,how would l react or survive these horrors.l would strongly recommend this book once you start to read it then,you will say why oh why did this happen,and yet the outside world wasn’t aware of the pain,humiliation,and starvation of these people,just because of there religion and what possessions,they had.
