My heart is full. Full of happiness, sadness, love, pain, and sorrow. Mia Sheridan completely outdid herself with Becoming Calder. From the first word to the last, I was completely captivated and once again, blown away by her incredible gift. This story is one that will stay with you long after you’ve finished.
Calder lives in Acadia, a place that has none of the conveniences that we take for granted in our every day lives. No running water, no electricity, no modern amenities. He is strong, beautiful and has a heart so big, it overflows with love. Arcadia follows the rules of Hector, their leader, who promises them peace and eternal life after the great flood.
Eden with the face of an angel is “The Blessed One” who comes to Arcadia at nine years old. She is Hector’s chosen bride as told by a foretelling and the one who would lead them to the hereafter.
Calder and Eden live in a place where you are assigned a certain station in life. You aren’t supposed to want more, or try to go a different path. The only time Calder ever wanted more was the day he saw Eden. Even when they were just children, she was his light, and he was the beautiful boy who made her smile.
As they grow up together, their feelings for each other deepen. A bond forms—a friendship so strong, so great that they look forward to any time they can spend together. And the time they spend together is glorious. Although it is forbidden, they can’t deny their true feelings, and fall in love.
“I feel your lips on me, Eden. When I close my eyes, when I’m awake. I taste you. You are my first breath, and my last. I feel you, and I hope you still feel me, too.”
Their intense need for each other became so great, they succumbed to passion over and over again knowing the fatal consequences if they were caught.
“I feel your lips on mine, too. I taste you. I breathe you. I long for you like I’ve never longed for anything in my life.”
Mia has the ability to create these characters that you can’t help but fall in love with. Their words and actions melt your heart and seep into your soul. They love hard and deep.
“There are glorious things right here on earth, too, and I think they’re meant to be enjoyed. We weren’t created not to notice them . . . our hearts weren’t made to not take joy in the things we’ve been given right here.”
Becoming Calder is a “glorious thing” in life, “meant to be enjoyed”. So savor it, keep her words close to your heart. You do not want to miss this beautiful story. Mia Sheridan is a go-to author for me. I don’t even read the synopsis—I just one click. Becoming Calder has made it into my top 5 reads. You will fall in love.
Coming October 6th!
