Great and Precious Things, Rebecca Yarros

Story Blurb

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...

Great and Precious Things is a heart-wrenching forbidden romance about family, betrayal, and ultimately how far we’re willing to go on behalf of those we love and who need us most.

My Thoughts/Opinion

As you might now, Rebecca Yarros is one of my all-time favorite authors. She has a gift of blending a solid romance with real-life issues and this story brimmed with all the quality I've come to expect from her writing. Camden's story, and the guilt he carried, was heart-breaking. Willow had her own secrets as well. I loved the undercurrents of harsh family dynamics, along with the sacrifices that sometimes must be made for the truth. I haven't found a book of hers yet that I wouldn't recommend - so enjoy!

Favorite Quote:

“Desperation and love make ordinary people do heroic things.”
