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

There is nothing but nothing I didn’t like about this story it has thrills, chills, excitement, fights, danger, a sweet slow build up of love, clean and just plain fun. Leander is a true gentleman who goes to bat for Kiszzie more than once. She sees him as a nosey more or less stalker who won’t let her alone. Slowly she sees him for what he is. It was a wonderful pleasure to watch these two fall in love and trying to overcome the odds. This is a story about growing, finding your way, stepping out and being different, going for what you believe in, overcoming fear and taking the bull by the horn. I loved the characters Charlie is a wise man who sees things others do not. Her father is just like Kizzie bullheaded and set in his way. He has a lot to learn about women and really learns to see Kizzie for how she is and be proud of the person she has become. Kizzie is a very kind and sweet girl who will go toe to toe with you but is giving as well. Grandma is back with some wise words and thoughts. I have just loved her throughout this whole series.
This is a very well written story that hooks you from the first page. There is lots of thrilling action and danger plus a clean romance. You have everything between these pages that makes a wonderful romance that you won’t be able to put down. I started this book at night BIG MISTAKE before I knew it, it was well past my bedtime but well worth being tried the next day. This was such a fun read with laughter as well as sorrow. I really enjoyed the ending what a delightful read. The only thing that disappointed me was it had to end I really could have read on seeing them each step of their way to old age as they overcome the odds of life and land bring the next generation of children who I am sure have as much spirit as these two have. This is a story you don’t want to miss, each one of the books in this series has been a delight and full of humor, danger, love and lots of meaning along with a wonderful grandmother who shows her love with each stitch she puts in the quilts she makes them telling a story about their wonderful family that grows learns and loves.
Note: Throughout the year I pick stories that really reached out and touched me in some way they become my favorite read. I have picked this story as one of my favorite reads for 2017.
Kizzie Atwell, against what her mother would prefer, defies the norm and will wear trousers, especially doing farm work with her father, or riding her horse. When the family heard of Indian attacks and told to gather items, get in their wagons and move to safety, Kizzie instead takes her horse, Sugarcone, and while dressing as a boy, heads to Fort to find her father and uncle. She must fight off an attacker but is rescued by Leander Jones.
The story encompasses the three years from 1862 until 1865, Leander’s visit to the Atwell farm, and the beginning of a relationship, even if nothing is said for years. Kizzie is a spirited young woman; she proves she has spunk and a backbone, especially during trying times.
When Grandma Mary is laying out pieces of fabric for a quilt, she explains to Kizzie that the quilt will become hers and ask her about any fabric she has that she will want to be part of the quilt. As with many quilts, fabrics from articles of clothing will make up some of the squares, and that will also be the case in this special quilt.
The story is fascinating and has a great cast of characters. It takes the reader back to a harsher time in history, with war, Indian attacks, unscrupulous men, and those who believe in duty, and honor. When hard work was a part of life and even scraps of fabric were considered valuable and useful, especially in a quilt made with love.
Kizzie is a young woman who goes against what she should do and often if found wearing her brother's pants and clothes especially when riding a horse astride. She is also very brave and when there is an Indian attack at the town they live near she rides out towards to Fort to find her father and tell him about the attack and to come home and help.
She goes back home and gets messages to all the family living in different parts around the same Kansas town to get to safety her grandparents come, cousins come and uncle and every other member of the family get to her parents house to figure out a plain.
What she doesn't know is the bullwhackers also have been watching her come and go to the fort and have followed her.
You much read this books as this suspense filled story goes on to read what happens to several members of the family and how they get rid of the problems these people are causing all around town and out in the surrounding areas.
I really loved this character Kizzie for her spontaneous ways and not kowtowing to anyone when she feels the has to do what she has to do as the oldest child in this household and family. I just loved her spunk.
For this first book of Zina Abbot's I loved it and will read more of her stories.
