“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.

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.

If Ridley Jones had slept ten minutes later or had taken the subway instead of waiting for a cab, she would still be living the beautiful lie she used to call her life. She would still be the privileged daughter of a doting father and a loving mother. Her life would still be perfect—with only the tiny cracks of an angry junkie for a brother and a charming drunk with shady underworld connections for an uncle to mar the otherwise flawless whole. But that’s not what happened. Instead, those inconsequential decisions lead her to perform a good deed that puts her in the right place at the right time to unleash a chain of events that brings a mysterious package to her door—a package which informs her that her entire world is a lie. Suddenly forced to question everything she knows about herself and her family, Ridley wanders into dark territory she never knew existed, where everyone in her life seems like a stranger. She has no idea who’s on her side and who has something to hide—even, and maybe especially, her new lover, Jake, who appears to have secrets of his own. Sexy and fast-paced, Beautiful Lies is a true literary thriller with one of the freshest voices and heroines to arrive in years.
