In 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 & 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.

Editorial Reviews

“Emily Giffin is a talented writer who always comes up with a plot that is just a bit different than anything others are writing about at the time. . . . She also has a knack for creating a variety of characters and making them all feel fully developed. Plus she can add twists and turns to her plot without breaking the rhythm of her writing or its believability. . . . Find a shady spot; get a cool drink, and just luxuriate in the joy of a book well written.” —Huffington Post “Emily Giffin’s specialty is writing about relationships, especially when they are messy and complicated. . . . The One & Only is one to read.”—The Washington Post“Emily Giffin is known for telling a good love story. . . . The One & Only is no exception.”—Metro“Chicklit powerhouse Emily Giffin’s playful prose will draw you in, and the hot-and-heavy make-out scenes don’t hurt either. . . . The One & Only embraces, then promptly breaks all the stereotypes.” —Chatelaine
