Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan was a unique treat amongst the pile of romance novels out there. This story was special. It was moving. It was simply fantastic.
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.
I’m usually not one to go for stories based on mythology, but this book is a must read. The writing was great, sucking you into the story immediately. The mystery behind Bree and Archer’s pasts had me flipping pages deep into the night. I had to see what would happen next.
Mia Sheridan created something beautiful with her character Archer. In the beginning, he was like a boy stuck in a man’s body and the way Bree opens him up was so much fun to read. I felt every emotion: curiosity, hesitance, determination, warmth, love, joy. The way Archer and Bree filled the holes in each other’s lives was beautifully done. The blossoming romance between them was a slow burn but once the spark was lit, it was like fire. The pages burned in my hand and I couldn’t put it down.
I can’t describe how great this book is. It was an amazing experience, and it was an experience. The reader goes on the journey with Bree while she faces her past, connects with Archer and ultimately finds herself. I highly recommend this book. It’s one of my top reads for this year!
