"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.

Some of the characters grow from their experiences and the reader feels a part of the community as the story unfolds. The author does a great job with her descriptions. This book reminded me of Binchy and Pilcher and Buck, and I would set Flynn’s books on the shelves with theirs.
A Fine Pair of Shoes - A wonderful, well written collection of short stories set in England, France, the US and an island in the Indian Ocean, dating from 1793 to the present. The emotions run the gamut from happiness to deep sadness. A Fine Pair of Shoes and The Proposal come from the family history of the author. The author reminds me of Buck and Binchy with her writing style; the interesting stories keep you reading. All can be read in one sitting, but some can be emotional.
A Mother's Love - Heart wrenching. A wonderful, sad, well written short story set in 1793 England. A late in life child and a loving mother and what she does for him. This short story can be found in A Fine Pair of Shoes. I received this short story from the author when I contacted her to review her books.
Gwen and Roger Collingwood has a less than romantic marriage. Because of an incident in Gwen’s life as a child, she keeps her emotions to herself, not allowing herself to care. Their home is in Eastbourne, near the cliffs of Dover. Nazi bombing comes to their area with Gwen being a part of the Women’s Voluntary Service, she helps those who have lost everything. Roger, her husband, is part of an intelligence agency and she has no idea where he is stationed. Her goal is to carry on, with her prickly attitude influencing everything she does.
Jim Armstrong lived on his parents’ farm in Ontario, Canada. As a farmer, he was not liable for conscription. However, he did entertain thoughts that he should sign up to help defeat the enemy. He was engaged to be married in a year to a childhood friend. His life seemed predestined. However, one small problem…his fiancée was in love with his brother. When he found them together, he lost it. He fled to Toronto, enlisted in the Canadian army. He was sent to England and billeted with Mrs. Collingwood. Both of them were broken souls and eventually helped each other mend. Jim also met Joan and after being together, he found that Joan was pregnant, and married her before he shipped out. What happens next is found in the next novel in the series, “The Alien Corn”.
I love the way this book is written. Even though war is upon them, the characters in the story find that life goes on and that one must adapt to it or perish emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
