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

James Colchester is a wealthy, landed gentry and a brave soldier. He's also a grieving father and widower. In an act of Christian charity, he welcomes the gypsy sisters into his home. But, his faith is weak at the moment and he asks Valentina to read his palm. Even though he's allowed them to stay in his home, her Rom heritage prevents her from trusting him or his English ways. Therefore, in an act of spite and fear, she withholds possibly critical information from him. But, can the Rom spirits be trusted anyway, or are God's ways higher?
As a romance, what begins with infatuation and intrigue develops over time into love. Yet, that love will be tested by class distinction and pride among other things.
What follows is a story of extreme emotions. You will want your tissues nearby because the emotions will get intense. But, when you finish, there will be a sense of peace that all has been made right.
Themes covered include - prejudice, deceit, forgiveness, love, true Christian character, and prayer. I loved how Valentina gradually learned and accepted the ways of God through reading the Bible.
If I were to add anything, I'd love for there to be an epilogue that connects this book with Seeking Patience. But, maybe the author can write a short novella that fills in the middle?
Romance - PG - kissing
Language - nothing offensive
My rating - 5 stars.
The story was a sweet love story, and also one of overcoming fears and of a gypsy learning about the love of Jesus.
Oh, just a funny and somewhat unrelated note. As I was reading this story, I was reminded of something my grandmother told me once. She grew up in Ohio, I think in the 20s and 30s. She was telling me that when she was a little girl, there was one time that gypsies were nearby and she was terribly frightened of them. Then in the next breath she said “I think I’m part gypsy”.
Be aware that there is mention of rape, and while there isn’t much description of the act, there is a tiny bit. Also, the kisses were quite steamy, though the hands all stayed where they should. Let’s just say that the description of the kisses didn’t just include lips. 'Nuff said. :)
