#1 "NEW YORK TIMES "BESTSELLER
Emily Giffin, the beloved author of such novels as "Something
Borrowed "and" Where We Belong, " 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.
