Summary
Her eagerly awaited new novel, beloved New York Times bestselling author Emily Giffin returns with an extraordinary story of love and loyalty'and an unconventional heroine struggling to reconcile both. Thirty-three-year-old Shea Rigsby has spent her entire life in Walker, Texas'a small college town that lives and dies by football, a passion she unabashedly shares. Raised alongside her best friend, Lucy, the daughter of Walker's legendary head coach, Clive Carr, Shea was too devoted to her hometown team to leave. Instead she stayed in Walker for college, even taking a job in the university athletic department after graduation, where she has remained for more than a decade. But when an unexpected tragedy strikes the tight-knit Walker community, Shea's comfortable world is upended, and she begins to wonder if the life she's chosen is really enough for her. As she finally gives up her safety net to set out on an unexpected path, Shea discovers unsettling truths about the people and things she has always trusted most'and is forced to confront her deepest desires, fears, and secrets. Thoughtful, funny, and brilliantly observed, The One and Only is a luminous novel about finding your passion, following your heart, and, most of all, believing in something bigger than yourself . . . the one and only thing that truly makes life worth living. Praise for Emily Giffin "Emily Giffin ranks as a grand master. . . . She has traversed the slippery slopes of true love, lost love, marriage, motherhood, betrayal, forgiveness and redemption that have led her to be called 'a modern-day Jane Austen.' "'Chicago Sun-Times "Giffin's writing is true, smart, and heartfelt."'Entertainment Weekly "Giffin . . . excels at creating complex characters and quick-to-read stories that ask us to explore what we really want from our lives."'The Atlanta Journal-Constitution "A dependably down-to-earth, girlfriendly storyteller."'The New York Times "Giffin's talent lies in taking relatable situations and injecting enough wit and suspense to make them feel fresh."'People "When it comes to writing stories that resonate with real women, bestselling author Emily Giffin has hit her stride."'San Francisco Chronicle "One of the sharpest . . . writers out there . . . profound, humorous, and reveals layers about a woman's deepest desires."'The Arizona Republic From the Hardcover edition
