    I have so much love for this book!!!

    Great And Precious Things by Author Rebecca Yarros is a flawlessly executed novel. The author beautifully woven together the main characters to create a story that touches your heart and soaks your soul in feelings. Her words are spun gold! Great And Precious Things is real and raw and gut wrenching. The backstory is perfectly laid out and marries perfectly with the circumstances that the characters are currently living through and struggling with. Your heart will break...it will heal, make your soul rejoice. Your toes will curl at the heat happening between Camden and Willow. The book poignantly describes what in sickness and in health and the struggles that families face. It perfectly marries humanity, family and all of its complexities magnificently. Author Yarros compassionately addressed the issue of being able to address your own end of life decisions while illness is stealing their memories. As someone taking care of ill parents I can tell you that this story hit home and pulled my heartstrings. Camden and Willow mean everything to each other. They are too afraid to express it to each other or reach across the divide between them. They have each other’s back no matter how much time has passed since they last saw each other. They heartbreak is indescribable, their love is palpable and their stubbornness suspenseful. I have so much love for this book!!!

    Great and Precious Things

    Great and Precious Things was good. It’s sweet, has an unrequited and forbidden-ish quality to it as well as packs an emotional punch as it deals with difficult matters. It’s about perception and the ways in which it impacts the lives of the main characters, Cam and Willow and those around them. I enjoyed it and recommend it.

    A beautiful and heartfelt read.

    4.5 stars Great and Precious Things by Rebecca Yarros is a beautifully written, heartfelt read and I loved it. I enjoyed the storyline, it's well written, well paced, entertaining from start to end and I loved watching the relationships between all the characters unfold. I loved Camden and Willow, I loved their history, I loved their passion and I loved their hearts. Watching them open themselves up to each other made me a very happy girl. They truly deserved their happily ever after. Great and Precious Things is one of those books that once you start reading you won't want to put down. Thank you Rebecca Yarros for writing and sharing your beautiful words with us <3

    tugs at every heart string in the best ways!

    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!

    a beautiful second chance love story

    Rebecca Yarros’ writing is STUNNING. This book is an emotional journey like no other. A true work of art! Be sure to have your tissues near by as there will plenty of ugly crying going on! (or there was for me anyway). Rebecca has weaved a heart wrenching story of second chance, healing, forgiveness and a deeply intense and beautiful love story. Camden is 28 years old, and has just returned home to Alba, Colorado from the army. He has been through a lot and adjusting to civilian life wasn’t an easy one. He has some hearts to mend and has some things from his past to make up for. Willow is Camden’s young love. He has always loved her and the moment they run into each other again you know that they have an uphill battle ahead. Willow has the most beautiful heart. She has a caring soul and is one of the only people happy to have Cam back home. The emotional connection was INTENSE with these two. I couldn’t get enough. She really fought for him through all his pain and what he was going through and I thought that was so special. This story is so much more than romance though, the family dynamic and Camden dealing with his fathers Alzheimer’s was so real and painful. In this story there is so much for Cam to overcome. The angst and the twists and turn I did not see coming had me reeling at times but the ending is so very beautiful. Rebecca has an incredible talent at creating these deeply connected emotional characters and I felt so attached to them I didn’t want the story to end. There is so much more I could say but to avoid spoilers I will end my review here and hope that you pick up this book to experience it all. 5+++ STARS!
