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.
Oh hello, Mia Sheridan just rocked my world with this book! I could just kick myself for not reading it sooner because I just kept putting it off even though I own three copies of it! I was completely swept away by these characters and this small sleepy town.
Bree first meets Archer when her items fall all over the ground and he helps her pick everything up, but it's definitely not in that meet-cute type of way. He helps her but seems distracted for some reason and completely unresponsive. As time passes she comes to discover more about him and they seem to form some sort of friendship.
Archer's character completely rocked me! I guess sometimes I spend so much time reading those Alpha male characters that when presented with this soft-hearted, unsure, and sometimes skittish character I just didn't know what to do with it. Archer was somewhat rough around the edges, but for obvious reason, and Bree was just the perfect friend! I love how she didn't go back and forth with her decision to pursue things further because that would have completely pissed me off. She was patient, and kind, and pushed Archer when she needed to. In turn Archer was somewhat of a rock for her as well.
The love in this book is just all consuming! Ahhh I was swooning so HARD! This writing is just so powerful. I felt for these characters, I ached for them, I cried for them, and I will never forget them. This is a stunningly beautiful story that will remain in my heart for years to come.
