Today's Featured Book and Contest: THE PRECIOUS ONE by Marisa de los Santos

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’ beloved works.
