One and Only: The Freedom of Having an Only Child, and the Joy of Being One by Lauren SandlerOn a May night, this Long Island, New York, venue is packed with females and the demographic is vast: teenage girls, young women, and senior citizens all seated in place. As she puts it, her protagonist, Shea Rigsby, is asking: Am I meeting my destiny? In the small college town of Walker, Texas, where people are devoted to football and the thrill of the game, Coach Carr is a local celebrity. This season means even more since his wife, Connie, passed away; he hopes for a championship win in her honor. Meanwhile, Shea is sifting through her early thirties and concludes that her life is a bit too comfortable, a bit too stagnant.

Thank you! Will a spectacular new job and a fairy-tale romance change everything or simply remind her of what she truly loves? At 33, Shea is in a listless relationship and has a fun but dead-end job at her hometown alma mater, Walker University. Walker is in Texas, where football is right next to God, and its highly successful football program has been under the sage and celebrated guidance of head coach Clive Carr for years. But after Connie succumbs to cancer, everyone is emotionally unmoored, and they collectively decide to focus their energy on moving Shea forward. Breaking off with her aimless boyfriend opens up space for a thrilling new relationship with a former Walker superstar now playing in the NFL.
