"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.

I found the book well written and accurate.
With all the physical and sexual violence Lara experienced as a teen. With the physical scars as well as mental and emotional; I'm surprised she functions as well as she does.
When her mom is assaulted in their home years later it brings everything back to the forefront.
Especially since she has become a target herself.
..Why?..what is going on?..Is someone trying to drive her crazy?..
There are times that it seems disjointed and bit unclear. Given Lara is experiencing PTSD that is understandable...I'd be unrealistic for someone whose experiencing PTSD and being terrorized to be reacting and doing everything like Polyanna..
Life isn't Perfect all "Happy Happy Joy Joy" for Lara at the moment.
Lara is a very strong female. She is determined not to give in to the stalker. She will Survive.
The story does have a HEA.
I recommend this book.
The author is new to me.
I found a real life situation that is emotionally taxing; draining and traumatizing to be exceptionally well written.
I have experience dealing with PTSD and Domestic and Sexual Violence.
I recommend the book and author.
The author is new to me. I look forward to reading more books by her.
I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy.
Lucy Appadoo has done a fantastic job with this crime thriller, The Heroine becomes the Hero again solving the case and saving her loved ones as well as herself. This is my honest opinion after reading an Advanced Review Copy.
The author handles a sensitive subject with an understanding and compassionate hand. PTSD after a rape and beating is traumatic, but the heroine handles it and gets through the trauma of reliving the event when another young woman experiences the same thing, then her mother is attacked. Lara is able to function well enough through the book to pursue the rapist and keep hounding the police to solve the beatings and rapes. A well written book by some one who obviously has experience with the subject. Highly recommend for anyone trying to find their inner strength.
I was impressed that she delved into the very real social issues of Sexual & Physical Assualt and the resulting PTSD that survivors often struggle with.
I kept turning the pages until the end Bcz I was grabbed by Lara's unfolding story as her past trauma collides with her mom's present assault. I loved how the story was told through the different sides. Loved it!
