Kayla Rose's debut romance novel centers on the journey of Drew Caldwell, a young woman who always seems to have a certain tree and a certain boy in the back of her mind...
Meet me in the meadow in twelve years.
On the evening of her eighteenth birthday, Drew Caldwell learns that her childhood best friend, River, will soon be leaving her. Crestfallen by this news, Drew devises a plan with River:
In twelve years, they will meet again in the meadow they discovered during their senior year of high school. There, they will reclaim special objects they have hidden in an old barn and wild apple tree, and they will be together again.
Drew moves on to college life, where she finds that school, friends, and boys are not exactly what she thought they’d be. As the years go by, River becomes more and more of a distant, mysterious phantom—until the unexpected happens.
A story revolving around growth and meaning, The Apple Tree is an emotional journey with the uplifting message to keep moving forward and upward, no matter what twists and turns alter your course.
From the author of The Apple Tree comes a story centered on the young residents of Sapphire, Washington, a quaint town embellished with old houses, a glittering river, and plenty of secrets.
Mia: My life in Sapphire has been quiet and mundane as long as I can remember—just like my quiet and mundane family. But then everything changes for me, the day that a mysterious woman moves into the downtrodden Victorian house next-door. Minty Judson is perpetually dressed in black, encircled by hushed rumors, and she keeps popping up into my life when I least expect it.
The same could be said for Daniel Lockwood, the boy at Sapphire High with gorgeous, black hair, the one I’ve had a crush on for years. I can’t understand why our paths keep crossing this year, or what that faraway look is within his turquoise eyes.
Daniel: On the surface, I seem to have it all. Popularity. Good looks. A stately home on Sapphire River. But there’s something people don’t know about me, a secret I am dead set on keeping to myself. As I traverse my final year of high school, I harbor my secret, I smile at all the right people—and all the while, I wonder why I feel so drawn to a girl I hardly know, the quiet and beautiful Mia Barnes.
A story pirouetting around themes of self-discovery and discovery of others, The Rain in Sapphire is a journey through mystery, pain, and ultimately, understanding.
While The Apple Tree and The Rain in Sapphire are currently my only two books, I have plans to write and share many more!
There are other works out there under the name Kayla Rose; however, the only ones that are mine are The Apple Tree and The Rain in Sapphire.
