"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.

'A Little While Longer' continues Velena’s story after the arrival of her uncle and cousins at the castle. Whereas the first novel in the series focused on the maturation of Velena's faith and the development of her friendship with Tristan, the tension steps up a few notches in this second novel as one of Velena’s cousins seeks to take the place his brother would have had as her husband. Naturally, he feels threatened by Velena's friendship with Tristan, despite their insistence that their love for one another is platonic rather than romantic. Tristan has always said that he would happily stand aside for Velena's betrothed--provided he was happy that he would love Velena as she deserved. He's convinced her cousin isn't that man.
Over the course of the novel, the character of Velena’s cousin is gradually revealed to the reader in a way that remains largely hidden from Velena, and largely unprovable by Tristan. This reader is thoroughly convinced Tristan and Velena’s friendship is exactly the kind that makes the best foundation for marriage, even though it hasn't taken a romantic turn yet. Emphasis on the YET, I hope! But how or if they will ever get to that point remains to be seen.
There were similar technical issues here to those I mentioned in the first novel, namely point-of-view switching within scenes which, while smoothly done, isn’t my preference. There were also the same editing issues, with incorrectly used homonyms or similar sounding words and grammatical things that were missed in line editing.
My other caution with this second book in the series is that there are some references to the immoral activities, thoughts, or desires of some of the characters, particularly of a sexual nature, and there are occasional unsavoury comments made by these characters. There are also instances of the words ‘bl**dy’, ‘d*mn’, or ‘b*gger’ used by certain characters. I felt these aspects were true to the period and contributed to the illustration of those characters they related to, however readers will want to keep this in mind when recommending to others.
This is a great series for those who want to immerse themselves in medieval life and explore love, friendship, and faith in God from a perspective that is at once completely different to our own, and yet universal at its heart. I’m eagerly awaiting the next installment!
I received a copy of these novels from the author. This has not influenced the content of this review, which is my honest and unbiased opinion.
