Perfect pairing of reader and story for this tale of a young woman who was born and raised in a small Texas town. Narrator Sofia Willingham is from Austin, Texas, and there is just enough of a Southwestern lilt in her voice to give Giffin’s book in audio form a stamp of authenticity. Willingham reads as if she’s telling, as if she actually knew protagonist Shea Rigsby. A pleasure to listen!

With The One & Only Emily Giffin again proves herself a master story teller as she creates imperfect, sometimes funny but always likable characters. She puts them in situations to which we can easily relate and understand. In this case, 33-year-old Shea has spent all of her life in Walker, Texas, a small college town like many others in the Lone Star State - totally devoted to football. Shea shares that enthusiasm as well as a close friendship with Lucy, the daughter of Walker’s head coach, Clive Carr.

Shea has worked happily for the past ten years at the college’s athletic department, but when unexpected tragedy strikes she wonders whether or not she has chosen the right life path after all. When the opportunity arises for her to make a major change she goes for it - she moves to Dallas to be a sports writer and before long finds romance with a former Walker super star who is now playing in the NFL. This would seem to be a dream come true.

But does this new life bring her happiness?

I am glad I got to read this work. It is a brilliant piece of art that is well-written and with a superbly constructed story line. The characterization is excellent too and reminds me of Tanya in Splendid Comets. It is also informative. I like to come away from reading a book more informed. Kudos.
