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.

I've been meaning to read a book by Rebbeca Yarros for a while now and I finally had the chance. I'm so glad I did, because I loved everything about this book. I loved the writing, the story and the vivid and wonderful world and characters Yarros created. Pretty early on in the book you just have the feeling like you’re right there with the rest of the characters. I loved that we get the dual POV, that we always knew what both Camden and Willow are up to and thinking, well as much as we are supposed to. The story is both, heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. I cried, I swooned and I even giggled and laughed. It is not only about loss, betrayal and lost love, but also about second chances, healing and accepting not only other but yourself and your past. I loved both charterers and their real world struggles, so true and honest and how each are coping in different ways. Overall, I simply loved this book and I’m looking forward to reading more books by her. I rate it 5★
