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.New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.©2015 Mia Sheridan (P)2015 Audible, Inc.
The story about two poor kids moving their way through a Kentucky small town, just barely surviving and finding love like no other. Mia portrayed Kyland as being strong and selfless, and Tenleigh being on top of the world. The story was deep and detailed.
The narration done by Stephen Dexter and Erin Mallon did not disappoint. I've listened to Erin Mallon many times, and her voice is an easy listen. First for Stephen. This is a stand alone, so it was easy to get through the story, and cheer on new love.
