"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.

In the romantic drama, TAKING BACK TARA (Ranch Lovers Romance #1) by Eve Paludan, a traumatic case study without benefit of psychotherapy develops. Zane McKenna enters a mid-life crisis when he loses his best friend and lifetime male companion-his father. This void in his, otherwise, fulfilled life causes him enormous pain. A close relationship between him and his beautiful wife abruptly plummets his psyche into the depths of depression. He loses his sense of responsibility and balance for living.
As he falls deeper into his cave, he creates a depth of isolation and despair for his soulmate Tara who endures for over two years in silence. She is devastated at her continuing daily loss of unity from the love of her life. In fact, her life is without a family or neighbors in a wilderness where not another soul cares whether she lives or dies. Then, one day, a stranger moves to the nearby property and begins to mend her broken dreams. There is no going back.
Fast-forward two years. We learn about the total loss of Tara's hopeful new life. Traumatic casualties have overtaken her to the depths of unbearable despair. She lived through a house fire and more tragedy. She's living alone in pitiful squalor in a small trailer without comforts of heat in winter and running water. Except for her beloved horse and her two skills-trained dogs, who left with her in her broken marriage, she's out of touch with reality. Her life and beauty have suffered and, one day, she disappears.
Unbeknown to Tara, her former love is recovering his life on the adjacent property. He watches over her and her property in case she needs him. In fact, an angry Zane keeps his distance until that moment when he senses an urgency to look for Tara who has mysteriously vanished. He's on his horse and ready to ride every inch of acreage on her land to track her down.
The story of `Taking Back Tara (Ranch Lovers Romance #1)' by Eve Paludan has the effect of choosing a language of love that most men and women understand. Delightful and refreshing words of endearment spring from the tall, tough, handsome Zane who is learning to express his love. A woman reading closes her eyes and imagines this man speaks to her. A man does the same and hears his voice in the middle of a tender scene. Why Tara leaves Zane is not clear to him. Who effected the miracle of change in Zane to become a non-drinking, gentle, tender-hearted person is a miracle to Tara. Some wonderful interaction between this couple starts an intervention.
`Taking Back Tara (Ranch Lovers Romance #1)' by Eve Paludan is a Kindle eBook Edition available at Amazon Online Bookstore. This book is an Amazon Verified Purchase. Taking Back Tara (Ranch Lovers Romance)
Zane, her ex-husband, the man she did wrong comes looking for Tara. Even though she left him he still holds a place for her in his heart. Noticing her lights haven't been on at night he is worried that something has happened to her. When he enters her trailer and finds everything as it should be except for a pot of beans overboiled on the stove, he knows something isn't right. Tara would never leave a something boiling in a pot and leave. Nor are any of her things missing. Her vehicle is parked in the barn but both the dogs and her horse are gone. Fearing she is in trouble Zane begins a search for her.
A nicely written story of love and redemption Taking Back Tara is heartfelt, warm and inspiring. It explores the ability of the human heart to forgive and begin anew. Although this is considered a western in the genre it would work in any setting. I am looking forward to more from this author.
