"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.

The story was predictable, rushed and for lack of a better word, convenient. I’m glad I got this book for free. I’d be annoyed if I had spent money on it.
Rating: 4 stars out of 5
Love. The love of a sister that was taken away. The love of a good friend that keeps you together. The love of a surrogate mother, that loves you more than your own. The love that carries on after death. This is a tragic story of twin sisters. One who was murdered and endured a horrible life. One that survives, but blames herself for the loss of her sister.
This maybe a hard story to read. It deals with difficult subject matter. I for one liked the story very much. It was extremely suspenseful, and kept me unsure of the outcome until almost the end. The plot was good, but contains difficult subject matter, including mental illness, alcoholism, child abuse and child molestation/rape. There is strong chemistry between the characters of this book. This book reads fast, but it also had some unanswered questions. Maddie faces difficult realizations of events that occurred in her life. With the help of people that truly love her, both living and dead, she shows strong character development. This book has a heart stopping, dramatic ending.

Review Copy of The Art of Going Home provided by the Nicole Sorrell for an honest review. Reviewed by Mollien from Alpha Book Club
Death from illness or even accidental death of a young child is a heartbreak within itself. An act of murder against a young child is unforgivable and…unforgettable. Sorrell captivates her readers with the resonance of a destructive past life and the desire for a better future…one with closure. The characters that this author has created are very easy to emphasize with and the tragedy that befalls these families are quite criminal. The Art of Going Home is suspenseful and thought-provoking with some added romance to boot. Sorrell provides an enthralling story that will leave readers compelled to find out the mystery behind her sister’s murder.
Maddie returns home to attend her Aunt Ceci’s funeral. Aunt Ceci meant the world to her; her life depended on that woman being there during her childhood…especially after her sister’s death. Fighting the memories that make their way to the surface upon her arrival, she is happy to see some of her old friends and family, but her father’s bitterness strikes a chord right away. It has been a decade, yet her father’s words still resonate with hatred and deceit. Her high school crush, Zac was also very fond of Aunt Ceci. With his presence and calmness over the situation, her father leaves the funeral, also leaving Maddie’s feelings of uncertainty about returning home, a dominant force within the forefront of her mind. Then, without warning…her sister’s voice starts to talk to her again. She knows that she isn’t crazy, but she can’t explain the way that she just knows certain things, like where to find things that have been missing for years—or hidden. Her persistence into the murder investigation that was conducted so long ago, unravels many threats and Maddie finds herself unable to trust those around her.
Sorrell is knowledgeable with her writing aspects and research; however, this read does lack a bit of emotion throughout specific scenes. This author does a great job with character development and originality. Due to certain aspects of this novel, the author may have become withdrawn in order to write the scenes, which may be the leading factor behind lack of emotion. The pace is quick, but not so quick as to hinder understanding or perception. Sorrell has a mesmerizing novel that will both captivate and immerse the reader into the mysterious plot that unfolds before them. If you are a reader of women’s fiction and mysteries, you may be interested in picking this story up.
