"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 ending seemed a bit rush and Edward threw caution to the wind and propriety be damned.
Though Honor and Edward were likable characters I don't really see how they fell in love as the book happened pretty fast and considering he barely remembered her from their last meeting, I don't know what was different about her this time around. They did focus on looks a lot though. Personalities came second.
The book did have potential and I might pick up Faith's story when it comes out and give this author another try.
Honor's father committed suicide after being cheated of his entire estate by an unscrupulous gambler. Why did the father put everything, including the home, on the line? Compulsive gambler, I guess. Now Honor has a plan to recoup the family fortune ~ she's going to play cards with the same dishonest gambler. Well, surprise, surprise, he cheats her too. So now, I've decided the father may not have been a compulsive gambler, after all. Just stupid. And so is Honor. Her family ends up shipping her off to an aunt in Northumberland.
Her compadre, Edward, is a younger son, a solicitor who has reluctantly been helping Honor with her hare-brained gambling notion. He now has a very rare opportunity to step up a few rungs on the ladder of success, presumably to barrister, but it will first require completion of a difficult case. He's wanted this opportunity for years, so what does he do? Drops work on the case and chases off after Honor in Northumberland. Like she won't still be there two weeks later after his work is complete. I suppose this was to show us that he really, really loves her.
Lots of dresses and balls, not much development of the characters and their romance.
I gave this 3 stars only because it was nice mindless entertainment for a couple of hours. I didn't want to actually think for a while:)
Enjoy your reading! :)
For those who care and want to know about the h's past - it isn't at all bad and not as bad as we're led to believe. Read it - it's free.
