"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.

Learning about the Amish on the computer and then her boss giving her an assignment about Amish Christmas traditions, gave her the chance to go to the community where her mother had come from.
God put Evan and Becca in Holly' s life, not only to help her find her relatives, but to put her heart close to them ant to God. Imagine thinking you are all alone and then to find you have a huge extended family!
This is a lovely story about turning to God, finding faith again, love, family, and being happy to turn her life over to God, and the Amish lifestyle.
A very good read and quickly read.
But now Holly's mother is gone - and Holly, 22, is determined to learn the truth about her parents. She travels to the town where her mother grew up, meeting Evan Miller along the way. The young Amish man is raising his 5-year-old niece Becca, who hasn't spoken since the fire that killed her parents.
Right away, Holly feels a special bond with both Evan and Becca. But what happens when it's time to return to Philadelphia?
While the general story makes for a quick, enjoyable read, the underlying fact is that it's not terribly believable. Holly, taking a few night courses at a local college, is already working a full-time job as a newspaper reporter. (As a former reporter myself, I know that just about every journalism job in today's world requires a college degree and experience, regardless of how "low-level" it may be, simply because there are so many people competing for so few jobs.) Then, there's the aspect of Holly managing to make a huge connection with Becca, a severely traumatized child, within a matter of days. Is it possible? Certainly. Is it likely? No.
Still, the characters are likable, set in a tiny, personable community. If you're looking for a quick holiday read and don't need to analyze the details too much, this one's for you.
She was 19 years old and found through research in Philadelphia her Father died 10 days before she arrived. She argued why her Mother hadn't told her his name sooner.
A few years later her Editor came to her office that her Mother died of a heart attack. He knew she was Amish and left to marry her father.
Now the editor assigns her to find out more about Amish customs & write an article for the paper.
Her Mother's maiden name was Bontrager, born in New Wilmington, PA.
She goes there to see if any of her family is still there. She has a small picture when her mother was younger, but not dressed as an Amish woman.
This book has so much more to it you need to read it. Will she find her Amish family & more? Enjoy.
"The Amish Orphan's Christmas (Amish Romance)" is a tale about a grown woman becoming an "Amish Orphan" as her life intermingles with the lives of a young man who takes in his niece who also has became an "Amish Orphan." Holly Saunders is not the A-typical Englisher, for she knew of her mother's roots without actually knowing anything about them. As she embarks on a new adventure to find out about her mother's heritage she just might find a piece to feel the spot that has been empty in her life.
This is a very good story about searching for a place to belong and in the process finding the one to belong to
