"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Dr. Kai Ingersohn is a psychiatrist after going through childhood trauma from dealing with her grandmother's mental illness. She agrees to treat leukemia patient Stephanie by entering into a non-traditional agreement. Both characters were likeable, and both deal with different issues throughout the course of the book. Both grow in their own ways, as a result of their interactions.
I am on the fence with this book. There were times when I couldn't put it down, but there were also places where I struggled to read through it. I really enjoyed the interaction between Stephanie and Kai, and I was really rooting for both of those characters. The parts that I struggled more with are the dream portions, where Kai tries to interpret the owls in her dreams; it really felt like the dream connections she was making were a bit of a stretch. And, quite frankly, I don't think the dreams were particularly interesting and they really didn't add to the story at all. It seemed like the author struggled a bit on where to draw the line between the fictional story, and the real life patient issues on which she based this story.
Kai soon finds that this relationship is not only making Stephanie evaluate her life, goals and attitudes to life, illness, death and love- it is changing Kai too.
This was a deeply moving book. It could have been quite dark and depressing, but I found it full of light and hope. Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for letting me read it.
