"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.

What a shrew Thomas' sister is. She thought only of herself, no wonder she showed no love for the two boys. Some stepmothers are like that unfortunately.
Bravo for Thomas to finally stand up to his sister, Mildred. Going after Celia and Tilly, arranging for them to be married, not only that but what he did for his step nephews was so touching.
Beautiful story Lorena. Thank you for writing it. Now someone has to write a reunion of all seven girls, their husbands and children so they can all meet! Now that would indeed be a story!
Celia promised Tilly she would still go through with the plan. She found one name that was the only one that she could see herself with through all the letters she had gotten back. After writing to him, she was going west from New York to Nebraska to be a farmer's wife.
Thomas Lannigan was helping his sister work her farm after her husband had died. He would get fifty acres after five years working to help his sister. She had two sons to take care of, but urged Thomas to find a wife. She needed help with her two boys and chores while getting back into the swing of things to look for someone to marry.
Celia shows up in town with the orphan train in the same Nebraska town she would be heading too only without being able to let him know. She also shows up with a baby in her arms that she had found on the steps out side the kitchen door at the orphanage. She found the nursery in such a disarray that she couldn't leave the baby she now calls Tilly there and took her on the train with the kids she and the teacher at the orphanage were escorting on the orphan train.
At the last town in Nebraska that the train was stopping at she got off to see the last three kids adopted. Then the lady adopting Emily a small girl since there weren't any boys left, got asked suddenly to also take Tilly home with her for a few days until she could tell her intended what she had done and why. She not only took little Tilly with her, she went an filled out adoption papers signing for herself and Thomas as the adoptive parents.
When she arrives and luckily finds Thomas in town when she arrives as the woman and her husband who were adopting Emily, Thomas heads over when he hears his name called by the woman adopting Emily, Celia finds meeting right then and there she wasn't ready to tell him about Baby Tilly.
Trouble comes in the form of Thomas's sister who saw Celia holding a baby and starts in on her brother about no more kids in her house.
Well as you can imagine all sorts of trouble comes from the bad tempered sister She breaks havoc for the couple.
Will the sister step aside to be nice to her possible sister in law or keep causing trouble? Can Thomas deal with the truth about little Tilly and the forged adoption papers? What can Celia do when she sees him sad once she told him the truth she held back from him, stay and hope it will all work out or make enough money to get a train ticket back to New York with Tilly?
To answer those questions you have to read the book. It is a quick read that is satisfying to read and I believe you will enjoy.
I believe this is book 7 in this series, so I am going to go back and read the others and I would hope you will also.
I highly recommend this book and as I said before this is the first book of Lorena Dove's that I have read.
I received this ARC from the author for my honest unbiased review.
