"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.

About the Author
Jann Rowland is a Canadian. He enjoys reading and sports, and he also dabbles a little in music, taking pleasure in singing and playing the piano.
Though Jann did not start writing until his mid-twenties, writing has grown from a hobby to an all-consuming passion. His interest in Jane Austen stems from his university days when he took a class in which Pride and Prejudice was required reading. However, his first love is fantasy fiction, which he hopes to pursue writing in the future.
He now lives in Alberta with his wife of more than twenty years and his three children.

No plot would be remiss without the Colonel wiggling his eyebrows. Oh how I love his character in any novel.
It is a wonderful novel to read and makes you smile and very enjoyable. I loved the way the love blossomed between Darcy and Elizabeth .
Thank you Mr. Rowland for a very pleasant read!
Enters when Elizabeth is visiting the Collins' at Hunsford.
Mrs Jenkins dies and Elizabeth agrees reluctantly to be Anne's companion until a replacement can be found.
Darcy does not come on his usual Easter visit as his aunt has become a bit too forceful in her machinations.
Anne developed a backbone through Elizabeth's tutelage and finally stood up against her mother.
The party removes to London and their are introductions, parties and a bit of a debacle with miss Bingley.
Ends with weddings in Hertfordshire.
This book was too uneventful and slow paced to hold my attention, hence the 3*.
After a spell in Kent building Anne de Bourgh's confidence the action (such that there was) moved to London. The friendship between Anne de Bourgh & Elizabeth Bennet drove the plot-lines. Wickham was dealt with by Col. Fitzwilliam at his cousin's behest (& financial support). Those pesky debts resulted in Wickham's discharge from the militia & an uncertain future aboard a ship bound for America.
Darcy & Elizabeth's romance moved quietly along to its obvious conclusion. Jane & Bingley were eventually reunited mainly due to the newly confident Anne de Bourgh's machinations (ably assisted by Lizzy). Caroline Bingley sneered & snipped at the Bennet sisters but was by ultimately given a significant set down by "Lady Susan", the Countess of Matlock. Lydia was put in her place, surprisingly by Lady Catherine whose over-bearing attitudes & behaviours mellowed of the course of the story. The happy-ever-after ending arrived quickly compared to the length of the book.
a cousin who fears to speak more than a few words to her lest her mother order her wedding clothes;
an aunt and uncle who rarely see her and don’t understand how her mother controls her every thought.
But has Anne ever had a friend?
Anne’s lifelong companion, Mrs. Jenkinson, dies suddenly during Elizabeth’s visit to Hunsford.
A suitable replacement is difficult to find. At Anne’s request, Lady Catherine offers the position to Elizabeth Bennet.
Elizabeth fears a refusal would adversely affect Charlotte Collins, so she agrees to stay temporarily
as a friend but refuses the job of paid companion.
Lady Catherine’s insistence on marriage between Darcy and Anne has caused Darcy to remain in London
and cancel his usual springtime visit.
The best time to make friends is before you need them. ~ Ethel Barrymore
Elizabeth discovers Anne has much more depth of character than anyone would have known.
Over the weeks of their relationship, the two young women develop a true respect and appreciation for each other.
Anne changes under Elizabeth’s influence.
Lady Catherine is distraught over the changes in Anne, not seeing her growth as improvement but as disobedience.
When conditions at Rosings grow worse, Anne rebels completely and sends for her cousins to take her and Elizabeth to London.
It is not so much our friends’ help that helps us, as the confidence of their help. ~ Epicurus
Elizabeth and Anne stay at Darcy’s home in London where Elizabeth befriends Georgiana and
Darcy longs for a deeper friendship with Elizabeth.
I enjoyed the developing friendship between Elizabeth and Anne. As Anne’s personality was freed
from her mother’s control, she finds she can be friends with all her cousins including Darcy.
She meets Jane Bennet and feels closeness with her almost at once.
The usual lovers and villains make their appearances, but the real story here is Anne and her Mother.
Can Lady Catherine see her daughter as anything but a sickly child?
Can Anne develop an adult relationship with Lady Catherine?
The strongest marriage is between two who seek the same God, the strongest friendship between two who flee the same devil. ~ Robert Brault
