"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.

Perfect for a summer’s vacation read.
“The Kissing Bride” - by Laura V. Hilton
A short story of an Amish girl who ran away just before her wedding because of extreme undisclosed pre-marital physical and mental abuse. Yes, it can happen in any peace-loving Amish district. Missing family and her roots, she dares to return—but to what? A love story sweeter than fry pie. Hilton writes PURE Amish, her next Amish Christmas story forthcoming.
“Sold on Love” - by Rachel J. Good
Lavina tells her beau she can’t/won’t marry him and the person taken most asunder by the news is her young and quite clumsy brother who had his heart set on a big brother. Will all turn out for the bet after the accident? You may like this story as much as the Mint-filled Whoopie Pie and Root Beer Cupcake recipes fit for the firehouse crew.
“Cowboy and Amish Girls” - by Thomas Nye
Yah, men can write Amish romance. Thomas Nye presents a delightful comic/romance where Cowboy meets Amish run-away girl. The writing proves it’s NOT this author’s first Amish horse bridling. Spurs twirl faster than a windmill’s blades. Try it, you WILL like it. I think I’ll read another Nye book. Nay, another Nye series.
I received a gifted pdf copy with no obligation for reading or reviewing. Personally, I much prefer print page-turners to page-swipers or page-rollers. But content is equal.
The Kissing Bridge by Laura V. Hilton heightens Hilton’s writing in not sugar coating issues within Amish families and communities. The Amish may have their secrets, rules and faith but there are unspoken issues that need to be addressed. Anna left her community to escape what she was enduring with only Rueben knowing where and why she left. When she returned she stood strong in her resolve to face the one who had caused her deep emotional and physical pain. I was right in the midst of all the emotions evoked from this novella along with my senses. Readers will appreciate Hilton’s heartfelt and touching story. Will Anna and Rueben be able to find their way together when members of the community want to turn their heads with what Rueben’s brother Mark is doing? Who within the community will step forward to try to end the inappropriate behavior toward family members and others?
Sold on Love by Rachel J. Good has the readers attending a mud sale filled with action, food, people and animals. Lavina had her hands full caring for her family’s home and younger brother, Stephen, who happened to be accident prone. She lacked confidence in being able to be a good wife in the future, thus ending her relationship with Aaron. Aaron is an EMT within the community and still attracted to Lavina as well as Stephen looking up to him as a big brother. Stephen worked hard at the mud sale after listening to Aaron’s instructions to reduce his accidents with the EMT crew present. Good draws her readers in with this realistic tale. What unexpected event will happen to Stephen that may wake up Lavina? Will Lavina, Aaron and Stephen be able to overcome their fears when verbalized?
Cowboys and Amish Girl by Thomas Nye is not your usual Amish story. But oh my, Nye knows his horses and the life of a cowboy. I was right there with Truman explaining his younger years on a ranch with his grandparents and then turning to the life of a cowboy. Will he find a connection to the Amish family that opened their home to him after saving Charity from her runaway horse and buggy? Can Truman really tame a horse like he claims so Charity’s dad will not sell Trouble?
I received an advance e-book reader’s copy of this novella series from the publisher, Celebrate Lit Publishing. I was not required to write a positive review but have expressed my honest thoughts.
All our characters are facing hardships. We have secrets of our past, facing the present and certainly being out of their element with the stories. I found that I enjoyed the fact that these stories were realistically created with the idea that this could happen in their lives. I could see this happening. I personally enjoyed the rodeo guy, that story was a whole new element of cool.
2.All the authors did a good job of giving quality to their Amish settings. I could see that each author knew their material and were familiar with writing about the Amish. This allowed me to really enjoy reading the stories, and not question if the material was correct to the Amish or not. Though fictional liberties were taken to create the story, I really felt as though they respected the culture they were writing about.
3. I am going to cyber high-five our male author, I have never read a romance book written by a male author. As this was my first experience I was very pleased with his work. He owned this story and it was certainly my personal favorite out of the three.I love the setting and the characters in this story.
In the overall perspective this collection was as a must read for the springtime. I think that Amish fiction fans will enjoy the collection and so will Christian romance readers.
