"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.

There aren't nearly enough historical romances set in the Georgian period. Unlike many Georgians that take place in the 4th quarter of the 18th C, this series takes place against the backdrop of political intrigue between Jacobites (House of Stuart supporters) and supporters of the Hanovers (loyalists).
A very enjoyable series. This book and the series' other titles are a nice respite from the steady diet of regency romances!
Sometimes historical fiction should be just good fun to read. The settings, the immersion into the life of living in the period and as a member of the “fallen” ton was wonderful. I could almost feel a small sense of Cinderella in the fine print, as Imogen fights to just keep her home out of the clutches of the warring factions of the Royals and the Jacobites, who are determined to once again sit on the throne of England.
Part of what is so much fun, is the intrigue, and the cloak and dagger of the fighting. All this, while appearing gentile and extremely civilized, as society demands. The only person who doesn’t seem to know what the fighting is really about is the center of it all, and the innocent of the day, Imogen.
Lynne does a wonderful job of slowly rolling out the scroll, and laying the picture out for us all to see and take in, much like a large panorama map across a desk. Accept, she is whisking us through the pages of her novel at break-neck speed as she paints the picture with broadening strokes. Just as you think you have it all figured out, Lynne throws in a curve and adds more depth and texture to the scene and characters.
What could have otherwise been a light summer read, was given more depth by the complex character development she gave to her central characters. It kept you turning the page to see if you had it right, or if the next discovery would turn Imogen’s world upside-down, again.
All this intrigue was wrapped and intertwined with a love story, much like a twisted Cinderella tale. Personally, I read and saw the Cinderella story as the central thread through the entire novel. It made it endearing and charming, in the middle of the cloak and dagger and everything else going on. I love a good Cinderella, smile.
As to the historical, there seemed to be no ties to documented history, but the atmosphere, and character development were spot on for the time period and setting. Fabulous job.
I would give this novel a good FOUR STAR rating. A copy of this book was provided by Net Galley for my reading and reviewing of the novel, thank you.
