REVIEW ➼ 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.

We simply fit, like two halves of completely different shapes that somehow clicked and became whole and new.


I knew going into this book that it would be emotional and I was proud of myself for making about 35% into the story and hadn’t shed a single tear…..that was short lived. I am not ashamed to admit that I ugly cried many, many times throughout this story. Rebecca Yarros wrote a beautiful, heart wrenching story that will leave you breathless.

Cam and Willow have a past, a long history together going back to the time they were young children. Willow is the sweet, neighbor girl. The judge’s daughter. Cam is the middle brother out of three. From a young age the town deemed him to be the black sheep and the bad boy. When Cam returns after being away for six years no one in town wants to support him or help him, besides Willow.

Cam and Willow become each other’s rocks, they support each other, the fight against the entire town together. Their chemistry is undeniable from the start; however, this is a slow burn romance that is 100% worth the wait.

Great and Precious Things captivated me from the very start and I fell in love with these characters, their history and their future. A MUST READ and a top read of 2020!
