When Bree Prescott arrives in the sleepy, lakeside town of Pelion, Maine, she hopes against hope that this is the place where she will finally find the peace she so desperately seeks. On her first day there, her life collides with Archer Hale, an isolated man who holds a secret agony of his own. A man no one else sees.
Archer’s Voice is the story of a woman chained to the memory of one horrifying night and the man whose love is the key to her freedom. It is the story of a silent man who lives with an excruciating wound and the woman who helps him find his voice. It is the story of suffering, fate, and the transformative power of love.
THIS IS A STANDALONE SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, INSPIRED BY SAGITTARIUS. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
I have to admit that when Maybel told me about this book my first thought was, “There’s no way I will like a book where the main character is mute.”
Oh, how wrong I was!
Archer’s Voice is one of those books that catches you by surprise. Unexpectedly captures you, wraps you around its little finger and has you wishing it would never end.
A beautiful story that redefined the word “beautiful” for me.
This isn’t your typical book where the womanizing bad boy meets that one girl who makes him want to be a better man. This is a book of discovering who you are, and all that you can become. This is a book where love plays a very important role, but the bigger role is played by acceptance, and faith. Faith in the fact that despite your past, you can always change your future if you believe in yourself. And that, my friends, makes this book not only an unforgettable love story, but an inspiring one.
Bree, is running away from the place she used to call home. After a horrible night six months ago where her father was taken away from her, she feels she can no longer be herself. Overwhelmed with too many emotions she decides it’s time to take a break from it all. So she picks up her belongings, and her dog (Phoebe) and drives for hours until she reaches the small town of Pelion. Pelion is the perfect place to hide away for a few weeks or months, and that’s exactly what she planned to do. Little did she know that life can’t be planned. Little did she know that her place of escape would become the place her heart would call home.
Archer is the guy in Pelion nobody sees. The boy whose life had been nothing but unfortunate events of incredible loss and trauma. Archer is a lonely soul, avoided like the plague by everyone around, and labeled as the town’s freak. He lives alone on the outskirts of town, on a property by the lake, devoting his time to household projects to keep busy, and avoid thinking about the pain and secrets of his childhood. No one can hurt you if they can’t see you. He keeps to himself, and people happily stay out of his way.
Until the night he meets Bree.
Their attraction is evident, their pull inexplicable, and their love beautiful. Bree gets to know Archer in a way no one has tried to before. She was truly a worthy heroine. She sees him for who he is, and despite the fact that Archer doesn’t speak, she hears him. In return Archer gives her love, a reason to smile, and a place to call home. Together they save each other from their own demons, and come out stronger than they ever thought they could be.
Archer’s voice is full of sweet, beautiful, and sad moments. It will make your heart melt. It will make you smile, and unless you don’t have a soul, it will also make you cry. But it will all be worth it, because you’ll get to hear the voice of a man who couldn’t speak. And you’ll get to feel the healing power that only love can bring.
Mia Sheridan did an amazing job at creating a story that you can’t help but fall in love with. Her writing is lighthearted sweetness that tugs at your heart. She created memorable characters and a lovely plot, without including the unnecessary drama cliche. I loved how she made Bree a no nonsense type of girl. And her creation of Archer was, simply put, a work of art.
Archer’s Voice is at the top of my favorite books read in 2015, and I don’t foresee it losing its place.
“And her love slips quietly around me, reminding me that the loudest words are the ones we live.”
