“You need to be tested for HIV.” Genesis Swan never expects to hear those words and definitely not from the man who vowed to love, honor, and cherish her. When her husband Kenyon reveals that he has put her body and her heart at risk, Genesis can only fathom two options: love him even though it hurts or hurt him even though she loves him. “They say if you love something, set it free. Death would be freedom for him.” The only thing Kenyon loves more than he loves himself is being loved. When his string of romances starts to unravel before his eyes, Kenyon has to choose between the wife of his youth, his erratic and jealous lover, or the barely-legal mother of his children. When death comes knocking at his door in the form of a pistol, will he have the opportunity to make the right choice or will the law of sowing and reaping cause him to lose the very thing he’s always taken for granted? …in order for God to do His best work “Sometimes, you have to suffer on purpose for purpose.” Facing divorce, depression, and a debilitating illness should have been enough to take Genesis out, but as her name suggests, that is only the beginning. With the forgiveness of God, praying parents, and the love of a man with the walk of a modern-day Boaz, Genesis must learn that even in the midst of mess, God can work miracles.

In the same vein as Jandy Nelson and Gayle Forman comes a novel from the gifted author of Faking Normal, Courtney C. Stevens, about hope and courage and the struggle to overcome the pain of loss. Sadie Kingston is living in the aftermath. A year after surviving a car accident that killed her friend Trent and left her body and face scarred, she can't move forward. The only person who seems to understand her is Trent's brother, Max. As Sadie begins to fall for Max, she's unsure if she is truly healed enough to be with him. But Max looks at her scars and doesn't shy away. And Max knows about the list she writes in the sand at the beach every night, the list of things that Sadie knows she must accomplish before she can move on from the accident. And while he can help her with number six (kiss someone without flinching), she knows she's on her own with number three (forgive Gina and Gray) and the rest of the seemingly impossible tasks that must be made possible before she can live in the now again.

This book provides theoretical clarity about the concepts of failed and fragile states, which have emerged strongly since the 9/11 attacks. Recent contributions often see the fragile state as either a problem of development or of security. This volume argues that that neither perspective on its own is a sufficient basis for good policy. In a wide-ranging treatment, drawing on large samples as well as case studies, the authors create an alternative model of the fragile state emphasizing the multidimensional, multifaceted nature of the "fragile state problematique". On the basis of their model and empirical evidence, they then derive a number of policy-relevant insights regarding the need for contextualized and ongoing country analysis, the perils and pitfalls of unstructured development assistance, and the need to move whole-of-government approaches from the realm of rhetoric to reality. In offering both a synthesis of existing research and an innovative approach to understanding the fragile state, this volume will be of great interest to students of war and conflict studies, risk, conflict management, and international relations in general. It will also be of use to practitioners in policy circles and to NGOs.
