KYLAND is a beautiful, captivating story about sacrifice. It’s a story about hope, strength and the power of true love. This story is about finding hope in a world full of hopelessness, finding a particle of light in a world basking in darkness, and finding that one person who brings life to your withering soul. KYLAND is a story so powerful, so emotional, and so exceptional, it is incredibly hard to express all of my feelings. My thoughts and my emotions are all jumbled together, swirling around in my mind, unable to find a way to truly do this book justice. Reading this author’s stories is an experience I wish every single person would go through. Mia Sheridan holds my heart in her hands every single time I dive into one of her books. She has the ability to utterly destroy it or make it soar. And I welcome the pain and heartache over and over again.
Kyland and Tenleigh are two people with one common goal. They want out of this town. They want out of the hopelessness that it brings. Their poverty-stricken lives are tearing them down and they see no other way out of the darkness and the ruin. One small act of selflessness changes the course of Kyland and Tenleigh’s relationship forever. A friendship slowly builds into something so much more. It turns into a relationship of respect, adoration, and warmth. It turns into a love that neither of them can deny. But at the end of the day, only one of them will be chosen for a better, brighter future. Can you call it a prize, when it means you end up leaving the other half of your soul behind? Sacrifices will be made, the feelings of regret and loss will be strong, and both Kyland and Tenleigh will finally learn what it means to find their true home.
In the end it doesn’t matter if you live on the street, in a beat up trailer, or in a mansion. When you have an epic kind of love, when you have that other part of you that keeps you whole and a little less broken, they become your home. Their soul becomes your sanctuary. Their touch becomes your everything. You don’t have to have a big home, expensive car, or fancy job to have a big life. It’s the people in your life that make it worth living.
I bow down to one of my favorite authors of all time. Mia Sheridan is brilliant, talented, and generous. Her stories and her characters bring light into this world and makes it a little bit better. You don’t have to me a romance reader to enjoy this gem. KYLAND will touch your heart no matter what genre you prefer. Simply sublime! Please LET THIS BOOK DEVOUR YOU!
I always struggle reviewing books by Mia Sheridan. Not because of the book itself but because I can never really seem to find the words to express how I really feel about her beautiful stories. And here I am struggling again. Like all of Mia's books before, Kyland is deeply profound and meaningful. I don't know where she finds her golden thread, but Mia somehow uses it to spin a tale nothing short of breathtaking every time!
Kyland Barrett and Tenleigh Falyn come from poverty the likes of which I have never seen or imagined. Yet, as I read about the living conditions, the town, the Appalachian Mountains, and its mountain folk I honestly could picture every bit of it in my head. That too, being Mia's gift. Being able to step into a place I have never visited and see it clearly and feel it in my bones.
The first time I saw Kyland barrett, he was swiping someone's discarded breakfast off a cafeteria table - Tenleigh
Despite the desperation and devastation these two have experienced, this book to me is about hope, well that and love of course. Being dirt poor, hungry and with no easy way out of Dennville Kentucky, Kyland and Ten are in competition for a way out, a future; The Tyton Coal Scholarship. Kylad has focused solely on winning this scholarship and getting as far away from Kentucky as he could. Tenleigh, too has worked tirelessly for the past 4 years to win and find a way to get her mother the help she needs along with a better life for her sister. But only one of them can win it and at what cost to the other?
"I'm going to leave here Tenleigh. Nothing is going to stop me. Not you, not anything. Not anyone. Do you hear me?" - Kyland
I find myself thinking about the fact that these two are just young kids, yet they are as mature as any adult I know. Being forced to fend for themselves made them grow up fast. Instead of worrying about cell phones, dates and social media, they focus on putting food in their bellies and staying warm. It amazed me through the entire book, how Kyland and Tenleigh found pleasure and joy in life's most simple basic things like sleigh riding, lavender fields, and books.
Sometimes my life felt so small. And I had to wonder why those of us who were given small lives, still had to feel pain so big. It hardly seemed fair - Tenleigh
The sacrifices they are each willing to make for others, including each other, are astounding. Never being selfish, but always being selfless. Each willing to give up on their own dreams for the sake of helping others. Falling in love when the outcome was going to be heartbreak, Kyland and Tenleigh were so brave.
"I realized I would happily suffer for you, because that's what loving someone is. Willing to do anything for them, willing to make any sacrifice, suffer so they don't have to. I loved you then, and I still love you now" - Kyland
Kyland is another must read from Mia Sheridan. It will leave you feeling hopeful, happy and full of faith. Kyland and Tenleigh were the perfect example of how good in this world does exist. I can't imagine what she will come up with next, but I will tell you this much, I'm reading it!!! Thank you Mia Sheridan! 5 big giant lip smacks for Kyland.
Although I didn’t grow up nearly as poor as the people in this story, I could totally identify with the people of this town. So many people struggling to make ends meet, keeping so much to themselves, and having that small sense of pride that keeps them from asking for help. This is a type of people I never envisioned being featured in a romance novel, but somehow I’m glad they did.
Kyland and Tenleigh are both competing for the same scholarship; a scholarship that will allow them to leave this poor town and never have to return. These two find their way to one another through a series of out of place events that cause them to invest their hearts in one another “And I fell in love. Deep, hard, utter, and complete love. And he was still leaving. And he still wouldn’t look back.” Both had the desire to move on, to move out of this place, but both couldn’t keep their hearts locked away.
This is a story of sacrifice, choice, pride, and ultimately love. I was absolutely enthralled by this story. I was aggravated, yes, but this was a story that seemed totally real. The struggles they faced, the choices necessary to keep going, and ultimately the sacrifices made to ensure a future were perfect, for me. A top read, for sure.
