Emily Giffin, the beloved author of such New York
Times bestselling 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.
Thoughtful, funny, and brilliantly observed,
The One & 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.
