"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 arrival in town of Grace Forrester, her daughter, triggers a whole lot of happenings. It also coincides with the arrival of Mark Bastian, a Naturopath and Acupuncturist to join the clinic where Sylvia works.
This story is really about Sylvia, with a fair scooping of Grace who is going through a transitional time in her life after the death of her adoptive mother. Mark too is going through a difficult time in his life and we get to see some of this as well. He is totally adorable, almost too perfect and *cough* celibate at present *does happy dance*.
The set-up is a lot about the town and we get to see quite a few locals. At times I would have liked them to get off stage and bring Mark back on. *drools* However, this is the first of the series which I'm presuming are all small town romances set in the Bay so I'm sure they will provide a background for further books and may have stories of their own. At times I did feel the author used Mark's profession as a promotional launching pad for natural/complementary therapy. A bit preachy at times, but it did fit the story as Sylvia, like many doctors, did regard them with suspicion.
Overall this is a very sweet story with a likeable cast of characters. It did get me wiping my eyes at one point near the end so I was well engaged. The ending was satisfying and I look forward to hopefully seeing Sylvia and Mark as background characters in further books.
Although life hasn't always been easy for the main characters, and although it keeps throwing them curve balls, it's still a very sweet, very easy to read novel. It's emotional and hopeful. Absolutely loved it.
... already excited to see what March will bring! ;-)
