9780062369727: The Precious One LP: A Novel

From the New York Times bestselling author of Belong to Me, Love Walked In, and Falling Together comes a captivating novel about friendship, family, second chances, and the redemptive power of love.

In all her life, Eustacia “Taisy” Cleary has given her heart to only three men: her first love, Ben Ransom; her twin brother, Marcus; and Wilson Cleary—professor, inventor, philanderer, self-made millionaire, brilliant man, breathtaking jerk: her father.

Seventeen years ago, Wilson ditched his first family for Caroline, a beautiful young sculptor. In all that time, Taisy’s family has seen Wilson, Caroline, and their daughter, Willow, only once.

Why then, is Wilson calling Taisy now, inviting her for an extended visit, encouraging her to meet her pretty sister—a teenager who views her with jealousy, mistrust, and grudging admiration? Why, now, does Wilson want Taisy to help him write his memoir?

Told in alternating voices—Taisy’s strong, unsparing observations and Willow’s naive, heartbreakingly earnest yearnings—The Precious One is an unforgettable novel of family secrets, lost love, and dangerous obsession, a captivating tale with the deep characterization, piercing emotional resonance, and heartfelt insight that are the hallmarks of Marisa de los Santos’s beloved works.

From the Back Cover:

Eustacia "Taisy" Cleary has loved only three men: her high school boyfriend, Ben; her twin brother, Marcus; and Wilson Cleary, her father. Seventeen years ago, Wilson ditched his first family for Caroline, an ethereal young sculptor. In all that time, Taisy has seen Wilson, Caro, and their daughter, Willow, only once. So why now, two weeks after suffering a catastrophic heart attack, is Wilson summoning Taisy to his house—in the town she thought she'd left behind forever?

Taisy discovers that going home won't be easy. Wilson is as chilly and imperious as ever. And then there is Ben. Taisy hopes for a reconnection, even as she fears that time and the fallout from their bitter separation have made this impossible. And her little sister is going through difficult changes of her own. For the first time, sixteen-year-old Willow has been thrown into high school, a bewildering world.

Falling Together is a captivating novel about friendship, family secrets, second chances, dangerous obsession, and the redemptive power of love.
