GREAT AND PRECIOUS THINGS
By Rebecca Yarros
How do you define yourself when others have already decided who you are?
Six years ago, when Camden Daniels came back from war without his younger brother, no one in the small town of Alba, Colorado, would forgive him—especially his father. He left, swearing never to return.
But a desperate message from his father brings it all back. The betrayal. The pain. And the need to go home again.
But home is where the one person he still loves is waiting. Willow. The one woman he can never have. Because there are secrets buried in Alba that are best left in the dark.
If only he could tell his heart to stay locked away when she whispers she’s always loved him, and always will…
Great and Precious Things is a heart-wrenching story about family, betrayal, and ultimately how far we're willing to go on behalf of those who need us most.
About the Author:
I’m a hopeless romantic and adore all things chocolate, coffee and paleo. No, seriously, I need to have a caffeine IV put in. I’ve adored reading all my life, and writing naturally evolved from my love of late nights and promises of one more page.
I’m also a military wife of sixteen years. During my husband’s deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, I was devouring a book a day, and during his third deployment, I finally wrote my own. With a somewhat ironic timing, I received my book deal for Full Measures during his fourth deployment, and published a month after he returned home. We’re currently preparing for his fifth deployment, so check out the blog for the latest!
On the homefront, we have six kids. Yes, you read that right—six. If I’m not writing or playing guitar, I’m usually tying hockey skates for our four boys, or sneaking in John Hughes marathons with my two daughters. We fostered and adopted our youngest daughter from the foster system and we’re passionate about helping others do the same through our non-profit, One October! We’re always busy navigating the winding road of our daughter’s recent autism diagnosis, getting our boys to hockey, prepping for a deployment, and generally trying to stay sane. We’re die-hard Mets fans, but our hearts call Colorado home.

A sweet romance with a heartbreaking yet heartwarming family story.
I really enjoyed Willow and Cam. Regardless of their past, these two have a connections no one can deny. I love their strength.
Cam is struggling with the loss of his brother and the accusatory eyes of everyone. Even when his heart is broken into a million pieces, he somehow finds the strength to keep going and not give up. I love how Willow has his back through it all. Their individual strength is exactly what the other needs to support one another and get through it all. My heart swooned for this couple. You will not be able to stop yourself from falling in love with Cam.
Cam's relationship with his father touched me beyond words. While it made me angry and upset at certain points, I love Cam's relentless, "I will not give up" attitude.
You can't help but want to hug these characters and to cheer them on.
I would recommend this book!
