"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.

Review

"A writer of great talent and understanding" - Lindsay Townsend, Author of The Snow Bride
"I first encountered Anne Allenwhen I read Dangerous Waters: Mystery, Loss andLove on the Island of Guernsey and ifyou've read that book you'll notice a glancing reference to Jeanne, theheroine, in Finding Mother. I felt nicely grounded! In much the same waythat Allen wormed Jeanne into my heart I really found that I cared for Nicoleand willing her on to make the right decisions and a success of her life. Allenhas a real talent for her female characters. The men don't come off the pagequite as well, but that's a minor quibble.
Tracing a birth parent whenyou've been adopted is a sensitive subject and Allen handles it well,recognising the insecurities of the adopting parents who wonder if they'regoing to be supplanted and the worries of the mother who gave up the child soonafter her birth. Will she be judged for her relationship with the child'sfather and for the fact that she made no attempt to bring the child up herself?There's an added complication here in that Nicole will also find out about herbirth father - giving her more parents than any girl should decently want! It'sneatly, elegantly done and the story is a real page turner."  The Bookbag ****

About the Author

Anne was born in Rugby to a Welsh father and an English mother. As a result she spent many summers with her Welsh grandparents in Anglesey and learnt to love the sea. Now she is based in Devon to be near her daughter and 2 small grandchildren. Her restless spirit has meant a number of moves, the longest stay being in Guernsey for twelve years after falling in love with the island and the people. She contrived to leave one son behind to ensure a valid reason for frequent returns. Her younger son is based in London - ideal for City breaks. By profession Anne is a psychotherapist but had long had a desire to write and Dangerous Waters was her first novel. It was awarded Silver(Adult Fiction) in TheWishingShelfAwards 2012. **New Book Alert** My second novel, Finding Mother, a romance/family/drama is now available - find it here on amazon.
