KYLAND by Mia Sheridan – 6 Stars.
Tenleigh Falyn struggles each day to survive in a small, poverty-stricken, coal mining town where she lives with her sister and mentally ill mother. Her dream of winning the college scholarship given to one student by the local coal company and escaping the harshness of her life, keeps her going.
Kyland Barrett lives in the hills, too, and has worked tirelessly–through near starvation, through deep loneliness, against all odds–to win the Tyton Coal Scholarship and leave the town that is full of so much pain.
They’re both determined not to form any attachments, but one moment changes everything. What happens when only one person gets to win? When only one person gets to leave? And what happens to the one left behind?
Kyland is a story of desperation and hope, loss and sacrifice, pain and forgiveness, but ultimately, a story of deep and unending love.
*** WHOA! WHOA! WHOA! I ABOSUTELY LOVE KYLAND.
So the above summary described exactly what this book is about so I am not going to do my own summary. What I will say is this book is AMAZING – you simply HAVE TO READ KYLAND!!!
Mia Sheridan is such a phenomenal writer. She has a way of captivate and pull you into the story – you will not be able to let go until you finish.
Just like Archer’s Voice, Kyland is so unique and unforgettable.
It is a love story but it felt more than that to me. This beautiful story is about sacrifice, survival, triumph, and hope. It’s heart-warming, beautiful, moving – their love story is inspiring and gives you hope for true love. I felt emotional and totally wrenched after I finished the book.
The writing is simply stunning.
What else can I say…PERFECTION!
Please get a copy and read it. Kyland is truly beautiful and the story will stay in your heart forever!
You are the best Mia. Cannot wait for more to come !!!
