Winner of the 2016 Grawemeyer Award in Religion Global health efforts today are usually shaped by two very different ideological approaches: a human rights-based approach to health and equity-often associated with public health, medicine, or economic development activities; or a religious or humanitarian "aid" approach motivated by personal beliefs about charity, philanthropy, missional dynamics, and humanitarian "mercy." The underlying differences between these two approaches can create tensions and even outright hostility that undermines the best intentions of those involved. In Beholden: Religion, Global Health, and Human Rights, Susan R. Holman--a scholar in both religion and the history of medicine--challenges this traditional polarization by telling stories designed to help shape a new perspective on global health, one that involves a multidisciplinary integration of religion and culture with human rights and social justice. The book's six chapters range broadly, describing pilgrimage texts in the Christian, Hindu, Buddhist, and Islamic traditions; the effect of ministry and public policy on nineteenth-century health care for the poor; the story of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as it shaped economic, social, and cultural rights; a "religious health assets" approach based in Southern Africa; and the complex dynamics of gift exchange in the modern faith-based focus on charity, community, and the common good. Holman's study serves as an insightful guide for students and practitioners interested in improving and broadening the scope of global health initiatives, with an eye towards having the greatest impact possible.

The story begins with Nell, the "spinster on the hill" near St. Peter's, Cape Breton. Scarred by her own childhood, she swears she could never love a child and that she will never marry, denying herself a life with the man she loves. She's proven wrong when a baby is born just down the road from her. Her love of little Jane, despite herself, propels us forward through generations trying to untangle their own traumas and secrets. Eventually, we meet Bridie--joyful, kind, capable Bridie--and see her struggling through the echoing pain of those who came before her. Her choices, her bravery, her "nest of wonderful women," and her ultimate refusal to settle for anything less than love, eventually redeem her and everyone around her--even the spinster on the hill. As real as our own family dramas, Beholden is full of Lesley Crewe's trademark laugh-out-loud moments, heartbreaking losses, incredible women with unbreakable friendships, and the sweet wildness of Cape Breton.

From bestselling author, Dr. Rebecca Sharp, comes a steamy, small-town romance with a dash of suspense. Laurel Ocean knows loss like the sea knows the shore. The loss of her parents took her from Carmel Cove and the loss of her grandfather brought her back. Unexpectedly inheriting the shambles of her family's coffee shop, her first instinct is to run. After all, it's just something else to lose. So, Laurel makes a plan: fix up the business, sell it, and get out of town. And it would've been perfect... if the building hadn't come with a condition: a stubborn, broody, and distractingly sexy contractor. Eli Downing made a promise to look after Laurel, and offering to repair the coffeeshop is just the start. He's not going anywhere whether she likes it or not. And for as many walls as she pays him to fix, he's determined to tear down the same from around her hardened heart. The longer she stays, the more Laurel finds herself beholden. To her family's legacy. To her loyal hometown. And to the man healing her heart. Unfortunately, Carmel has only given Laurel one outcome she can rely on. And when loss draws another line in the sand, will she flee from her fears or fight for her future? Beholden is the first enemies-to-lovers standalone in the Carmel Cove series.

HE HAS TO HAVE HER Despite his vow to remain a bachelor and sire no children, Octavius Rupert Henry Mayne, eighth earl of Lexden, wed Eleanor Dryden. Their physical connection was explosive-and brief. Regretting the marriage almost before the vow left his lips, Lex banished his new wife to the country. Now, six years later, she must come back. Lex needs her like he needs a backfiring musket: her fiery temper, her flashing green eyes, the elemental attraction he's never been able to shake...and her desire to talk. Yet a charade must play out if he is to avenge himself and his father. For that, Eleanor must be silent and compliant. She must not bring "their" son. Above all, she must not pry into his past or his family's tragic secrets and besiege the desperate fortress around his heart. Otherwise he will be beholden to her, and love, so long denied, shall return.
