"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.

Ross Bennett had given his inheritance to his cousin after his Father had been found to have been a traitor to England. Ross wanted nothing to do with anything his Father had touched. As it was, Ross was reviled by Society as was his Father. Ross retreated to St. Stephen’s Hollow which he had inherited from his Mother. Here, he stayed separated from the “locals” and remained “inhospitable”. Sam Benedict, an agent for the government, came to see Ross and recruit him for a mission at St. Stephen’s Hollow. Someone was smuggling opium into England and it was being traced back to this area of the countryside where caves were there to house the smuggled goods. Since strangers would be easily recognized in this rural area, Sam asked Ross to do some spying for him. If he could help round up this ring of smugglers, it would go far in helping him overcome his Father’s ill deeds. As he was leaving, Sam handed Ross a letter from his solicitor. This was a letter which would change his entire world.
Another reviewer complained the story left her "hanging." The author provides all the elements of a happy ending, but you do have to use your imagination to see every last detail play out. It always would be nice to experience more joy with characters you've become attached to, but I was satisfied. I've read the last book in the series, but in my opinion each stands alone.
When he goes visit her he finds out she died in a carriage accident and had a child who was about four years old. He realized it must be his child. Who was taken to the local orphanage.
He goes to the orphanage to find his child. He meets Josephine (Josie) Foley) who helps take care of the children who mean so much to her. She hides his son Charlie from him, because he looks just like his Father, and considers him to have a bad reputation.
For some reason they both start to have feelings for each other, which both thought it can't be able to happen, he's royalty and she is not.
She lives at the Clythebrook Estate with Lady Clythebrook, since she was 13 years old. The Estate isn't being well cared for and the orphanage is lacking funds & donations to take of the children's need.
She gets asked to help to a local Lord, to let a ship bring in goods that will be sold by a local wealthy merchant, to hide them in tunnels beneath the orphanage. She agrees so there will be extra funds for orphanage.
There's so much more to this story that you need to read it. Many more characters, danger and possible love. Enjoy.
