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

The setting is after President Kennedy's assassination where the people of the world are in shock.
The characters are all perfectly presented, even Roxanne, a very minor protagonist. Savannah, whose life has been filled with one tragedy after another, remains strong till the end. Neenie is always there to hug her and take away the agony when life becomes unbearable. When she dies, the reader is sure Savannah will crumble. She doesn't.
Terri Lee is a great writer who portrays characters that are both appealing and exciting.
Sometimes we get what we wanted, only to find out it's not what we need. Savannah Palmerton was well married; she got the man of her dreams. But the dream turned ugly even before the wedding. Now her deceitful husband winds up dead, murdered in his law office. Could Savannah be the killer? Savannah can't say - she can't remember what happened right before Price Palmerton's murder.
All Savannah knows is there is damning evidence of a possible affair on her part, mental instability in her family, and a history of looking the other way. Now she's in the fight of her life, for her life, and only one man can save her.
Great story. Loved every page.
“But moments couldn’t be caught. Wisps of laughter, precious seconds when the heart strained against the chest wall, overflowing with emotion-they were gone in an instant.”
It’s 1963. Socialite, Savannah Palmerton has it all. The husband, the kids, and the house. But on the inside? There’s a storm brewing deep within. Her tumultuous and failing marriage has taken its toll on her. She’s lost the strong woman she once was. She decides to take an art class. Painting is something she loves, and believes it will bring a piece of her back. She has no idea that that action would forever change the trajectory of her life.
“Why were you so reckless with our love? Do you know we’re about to lose everything?”
Once tragedy strikes, Savannah’s world begins to unravel. The façade and good wife routine is coming to the surface. For everyone to see. Family lies and secrets are revealed and its as ugly as it is heartbreaking. Savannah questions her love and loyalty. Hers is also questioned and challenged. Despite the heartache and darkness, she finds love. In a place she least expects. One that rises through the ashes. A love reserved only for her. But this love? It’s one that may compromise everything. But isn’t love always worth that risk?
“But if you bare your soul to me, I just might be able to save it.”
There is scene that absolutely moved me to tears. TEARS. I was totally in my feelings. Without going into too much detail, this scene involved Savannah’s nanny/maid, Neenie. As I mentioned before this story takes place in the 1960s. A time of discrimination and narrow minded-ness in our country. While the author brilliantly and so effortlessly captured this heartbreaking injustice, she also reminded us of the beauty and grace in the human spirit. Even at that time. That there were people ready to stand up for what’s right. That love always conquered fear. And just how much a good deed means to someone who was always taught they were a no one. This scene (and many others) have truly solidified her as not only a talented author, but a writer that can truly allow the readers to become part of a story she has masterfully crafted.
“After a storm is when you find the best treasures.”
Can we please talk about the writing? With its highly refined prose, the storyline takes twists and turns the reader never sees coming. It’s a perfect balance of romance and suspense. A story of a woman where life continues to throw situations that make her question everything about her, until she realizes that to love truly and deeply, she must first love herself. This gripping and poignant story is one that I read in one sitting. It was impossible to put down. The author’s voice in this story is unparalleled as she weaves a story with characters that you become emotionally invested in. All their highs and their lows. Her character development is genuine and fascinating, where no matter how big or small, they all play a vital part of this addicting story.
“I want to be the one to save you.”
“Then save me.”
Paper Castles is a mesmerizing and spellbinding story that immediately captivates the reader. It also challenges the reader. This isn’t the normal cookie cutter contemporary romance. Her talent shines in her ability to connect the reader to a story that takes place over 50 years ago. A very different world compared to today. The depth of emotions in this story are felt from beginning to end. I would call this book a game changer for me as it has left a mark on my heart that I will never forget. My love for this story and its characters is palpable. This extraordinary tale left me breathless as I was totally engrossed in this story of love, betrayal, loyalty, secrets, and murder. This compelling story placed me IN to the 1960s. My heart was broken, I fell in love, and I simply lived.
