#ReleaseDay #GreatAndPreciousThings #RebeccaYarros #SecondChance #Review
Release Date: February 25
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.

My Review

This book was absolutely amazing! It was, I feel this in my bones, amazing! It’s been a long time since I’ve read anything from Rebecca (due to time, not for anything else) and I could kick myself for it! There are so many layers to this story and so much compassion. It truly grips every heart string you have!

Camden is one of those characters that you can feel every emotion for and with. I felt the ache when he felt the ache, and I was angry with him when he was angry. He came back from a life of purpose to a town that absolutely hated him, I can’t even imagine what that would feel like. Rebecca took us through so many journeys with him in this book and I really felt one with his character.

Insert Willow, when we first get introduced to her my curiosity was beyond peaked!! I instantly NEEDED to know more about this girl! Who was she, why did she have so much faith in Cam’s dad and why did she have the reaction she did to seeing Cam again? So many things swirled through my head, and to be honest, it definitely took a while for me to pull all of the pieces together. Both Willow and Cam had a really harsh family dynamic, and I think that is definitely something that so many of us can relate to.

The push and pull between Willow and Cam was completely intoxicating. I was so addicted to the slow burn these two had. From the forbidden factor to the town being against them both, it was so much. But, in the absolute best way! They had all of these obstacles to overcome, but it didn’t stop them. And then of course we have Cam’s dad. He was such a sad man with such a sad disease. The situation Cam was in was a really tough one. It brought on so many more emotions.

Overall, this is hands down, my favorite book so far this year. I was super emotional reading this, and that’s my absolute favorite!! I loved the twists and turns, and the constant battle these characters had, it was just so good!

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.
If you’ve read all of that, haven’t fallen asleep, and still want to know more about me, check out my blog: http://www.rebeccayarros.com/blog!
