Our Review

‘Half agony, half hope. Half pain, half ecstasy. Half grief, half joy. Half my downfall, half my saviour.’

When you pick up a new book by Mia Sheridan you pretty much know what you’re going to get; a beautiful written story, a broken and vulnerable male hero with a heart of gold and a sweet and strong heroine as well as a swoon worthy romance set in adversity. Oh and you bet there’ll be tears. Once again Mia gave us just that; yes the formula is reminiscent of previous stories by this Author and there’s a sense of predictability, but….you can’t help but fall in love and have your hearts broken then carefully put back together again.

“I’m not asking you for anything more than you can give. I’m not.”

There’s no question; the brilliance with which Mia Sheridan writes she manages to insert the reader into her world. We see the mountains; we feel the despair and suffering of this small mining town. We smell the lavender whilst tasting the desperation and hopelessness. In some ways the setting and backdrop of her stories almost become the third character.

“What keeps your fire burning?”

“The hope that life won’t always hurt so badly. The belief that I’ll get out of here sometimes – that I won’t be cold or hungry forever. It keeps me going. It’s my fire. It helps me do the things I need to do to survive, and it helps me hate myself less for doing them.”

In amidst the pain and emotional suffering we’ve got Kyland and Tenleigh. They epitomise what Mia writes best; characters who’ve had a hard start in life; who’ve suffered emotionally and not had it easy yet retain their beauty, compassion and survival instinct. Both are struggling yet both are survivors in life.

“You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope.”

This story very much felt like a friends to lovers romance of the soul mate variety. It was a beautiful slow build with an intense attraction and a sweet romantic element. The sacrifices made out of love had us in tears and the hope and inspiration had our hearts soaring. A definite recommend from us!

Kyland is a standalone novel in The Sign of Love Series.

Synopsis

Dirt poor. Hillbilly. Backwoods hick. Mountain folk. 

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.

THIS IS A STAND-ALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY TAURUS. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
