"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Buddy Lee Walker and Faith Morgan were friends in high school. Faith was the one getting into trouble and Buddy getting her out of those jams. They have not spoken to each other in 6 years, then a night like any other, Buddy finds Faith on his door step. Again, Faith needs help getting out of trouble.
Faith is engaged to Royce Webb and the wedding is just a few days away. There is just one problem Faith does not want to marry Royce. To many things have happened and Faith is afraid. With no one else to run to she turns to Buddy Lee for help.
Buddy Lee's mother died when he was 6 and his father failed at raising him. Buddy spends most of his time at his shop and stays to himself. He likes his quiet life then Faith shows up. She ask for his help and Buddy has no idea what he is in for ! After agreeing to help Faith his life is anything but quiet. He finds himself married and once again with the ugly title of "Boyd's Boy".
This was an excellent read ! I feel in love with Faith and Buddy right away. This book reminded me of the Robyn Carr's books. A good love story with lots of little twist !
Well, let me tell you when I finished the first few sentences of ALL THAT MATTERS, it became all that mattered. I couldn't put this story down. From the first page Buddy Lee and Faith's story captured my heart. By the end of chapter one, I admit I had more than a slight crush on Buddy Lee. This charming man was pure in heart and the more I learned about him the more I rooted for him to get what he wanted. Faith's love.
Without giving away too much, because I want you to enjoy the story the way I did, feel the emotions and the triumphs and the frustration, I will share a little bit.
Buddy Lee showed his courage in overcoming a shame-filled past brought on him by his father. He worked hard and lived by a moral code of ethics, though not everybody realized this. As for Faith, I was instantly drawn to her for all that she'd gone through. Her plight in dealing with an overbearing father and how she was made to feel she needed to act a certain way because she belonged to the upper class of their small town...it broke my heart. Together this pair formed an unlikely friendship...good girl meets town bad boy. But Buddy Lee proves he isn't a bad boy when he rescues Faith time and time again from the situations she finds herself in. He takes the blame with no thought to how it makes him appear to others, his only concern is his friend. Faith.
Loralee Lillibridge is an amazing author and wove her words in a manner that made me feel like I was there with Buddy Lee and Faith, in every room listening to their conversations, but with one added bonus, I knew what they were thinking and feeling. I curled up into the soft cushions of my couch with no plans to put this story down. Loralee's turn of phrase, her characterization, her subtle humor, made this book smooth and flowing and before I knew it--before I was ready for it--I was reading the last chapter. When I finished the last sentence I was torn. Saddened that my mini vacation in a small Texastown with two new friends--Buddy Lee and Faith--had ended, but I also had that little niggle in the pit of my stomach--you know the one--the one you get when you've finished a truly good read!
All That Matters is fun, romantic, sad,tragic, and suspensful all wrapped up into one good read. The reader immediately learns to love the characters Buddy Lee and Faith and the situation they have found themselves in. And they are drawn into the suspense and mystery that centers around a death.
The story moves quickly and can easily be read in a weekend making it a good choice for those with little time to sit and read. There are a couple of intimate scenes between Buddy Lee and Faith that are done in good taste within the scope of true love but I would still warn the reader that it wouldn't be appropriate for teens or those uncomfortable reading scenes with sexual content.
The mystery and suspense is good, the story line keeps the reader caring about what will happen, and the ending has its own twist and turn. All in all a very good story.
Faith was just searching for someone to love her.
All the money in the world can't buy love.
All the wanting in the world can't give you,love unless show them
Buddy has loved Faith since they were kids Faith didn't realize
that Buddy was the one who could truly love her
Read a great little romance story that takes you on a little twisted journey
that shows you what being in love can do
