"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.

Editorial Reviews

Review

"Carolingian Europe comes alive in Kim Rendfeld's sweeping story of family and hope, set against the Saxon Wars. Her transportive and triumphant novel immerses us in an eighth century world that feels both mystical and starkly real."--Jessica Brockmole, author of Letters from Skye

"A captivating historical filled with rich detail, compelling characters, and a well-paced plot that keeps the pages turning to its very satisfying end. A true delight for fans of historical fiction. I couldn't put it down."--Susan Spann, author of the Shinobi Mysteries

"The Ashes of Heaven's Pillar is refreshingly set in a less familiar medieval period--soon after Charlemagne has conquered a portion of today's Germany and its people. The characters are refreshing also, common folk instead of the lords and ladies who are the usual inhabitants of historical novels, and how they adjust to their new condition is fascinating. Altogether, this book was absorbing from start to finish."--Roberta Gellis, author of The Roselynde Chronicles

From the Author

In The Ashes of Heaven's Pillar, Leova must grapple with why her gods let a holy monument burn and how to protect her children when she's lost everything--her husband, her home, her faith, even her freedom.

This novel gives readers a little told side of the early Middle Ages. When source documents depict pagans as brutes, treat war captives like war booty, and rarely mention peasants at all, historical fiction such as The Ashes of Heaven's Pillar fills a gap. In fact, it might be the only way to see historical events, including Charlemagne's destruction of a pillar sacred to the Continental Saxon peoples, through the eyes of pagans and peasants.

Although separated from Leova by more than 1,200 years, modern readers will identify with her as she sacrifices her own honor for the sake of her children. They will grieve with her at the pyres of her loved ones, understand her desire for justice against the relatives who betrayed her, and agonize with her as she tries to determine who is friend and who is foe.
