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.

Why did I add Great and Precious Things to my bookshelf?

I have heard great things about this author and was really excited to get my hands on a copy of this book. I had hoped to get to it right away but here were are over a year later and it is still sitting on my shelf unread. I really don’t have much of an excuse besides the fact that life, a pandemic, and a move got in my way. The reviews on Goodreads are very good so I still hope to get to this one at some point.

What are your thoughts? Have you read this book?  Would you recommend it to others?

  1. Yarros is so big in my romance circles, but I have yet to read something from her. I have heard good things about her books though

  2. I think this one the first I read by Yarros and I really loved it. I’ve read several more by her since them and she’s become a favorite. I hope you enjoy this one when you get to it!

  3. I haven’t heard of this author but this sounds like a great book with some serious poignancy. I hope you love it when you get to it.
