"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.

From the Editor

From the opening chapters of this novel, I was transported to the uncertainties of World War II Europe. Reading of the selfless way that young men and women gave up their secure surroundings to join the war effort left me awestruck at the sacrifices that were made by so many. Wives of War focuses on the lives of Lucy, Ellie, and Scarlet, three tenacious strangers whose paths cross in Normandy when they go to France as first-time nurses and are suddenly faced with the horrors of war.

The friendship of Lucy, Ellie, and Scarlet made me think about my own friendships—my closest ties are with people I have met in transitional periods of my life, when I was finding myself and relied on the support of those around me. So too for these three women, who encounter the highs and lows of love and the shared brutalities of the front line, bearing witness to experiences that will result in lifelong friendships.

This is a life-affirming novel about the bond of sisterhood: both heartwarming and inspirational, and for me, a much-needed reminder of the power of the human spirit. I hope you will be carried away by this book as much as I was.

Wives of War is a sterling read…An intense and absorbing tale.” Amanda Writes

“Stunning and captivating, Wives of War is an epic story of friendship, survival, and resilience. Ms. Lane’s accomplished writing quickly drew me into the lives of Scarlet, Ellie, and Lucy and kept me enthralled until the last page. I cheered them on during their triumphs and felt the anguish of their tragedies. I thoroughly enjoyed this story and highly recommend.” —Kerry Lonsdale, Wall Street Journal and #1 Kindle bestselling author of Everything We Keep

“In Soraya M. Lane's captivating historical drama, three heroic nurses brave bullets, blood, and heartache to survive wartime France, all the while struggling to keep hope alive for a peaceful future. Scarlet, Ellie, and Lucy’s journey through the horrors of WWII is, at the same time, moving, harrowing, and ultimately satisfying.” —Emily Carpenter, bestselling author of Burying the Honeysuckle Girls and The Weight of Lies
