"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.

When Debra finds a mysterious strand of pearls in a safe deposit box and the warning never to wear them, she couldn't resist trying them on. The pearls won't come off. It is as if they are meant to protect her. When Dave tries to take them from her, they find themselves transported back in time two hundred years.
Imagine the shores of Galveston, Texas, then known as Campeche adorned with Spanish Galleons and pirate ships, the coastal waters lapping against the sand and the sometimes unbearable humidity. Debra is thrust into the midst of unscrupulous pirates. They have a keen eye for the necklace she wears, but each time someone tries to take it, she disappears and becomes known as a witch.
But there's one man, Ensign Jeremy Jenkins, who wins her heart and even though she's transported back to present day Galveston, she vows she'll return to Campeche to stay with him. To do so, she must find the secret of the pearls.
Ms. Cogan takes the reader on a marvelous fantasy back into time. The characters are well developed and the story flows holding the reader captive until the very last page is turned. I thoroughly enjoyed the adventure.

Prisoner of the Pearls by Karen Cogan is a story that hops between the present day and the 1820s. When the story opens, Debra is in the present at the historic home her Aunt Lacy left her, along with a very special pearl necklace. The necklace comes with very specific instructions to never wear them. Debra cannot resist the temptation of trying them on just once and, unfortunately for Debra, when she closes the clasp the pearls are sealed and cannot be removed from around her neck. Debra soon finds herself in 1821. There she meets Abby and they form an instant friendship. She also meets and quickly falls in love with Jeremy. Her necklace causes a stir amongst the pirates that will do whatever it takes to get the pearls. Debra travels back to the present each time someone tries to pull the pearls from her neck. Debra finds herself in terrible and scary situations because of the necklace, including being near death. Jeremy tries his best to protect her and even ends up traveling to the present day with her before the mystery of the necklace is revealed.
I found Prisoner of the Pearls to be an exhilarating read. Karen Cogan supplied excitement, adventure, pirates, love, friendship, inspiration and more throughout the book. I found myself neglecting my chores to continue reading Prisoner of the Pearls as often as I could. I was never sure whether Debra would return to her own time or remain in the past and it kept me turning the pages to find the answer. Prisoner of the Pearls has something for all types of readers to enjoy.
