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 STAND-ALONE NOVEL. The first three books in the series need not be read to enjoy this book. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
First, this book is listed as book 4, I read and loved that it could be read as a stand alone! I repeat this book is an amazing book and can is a standalone read.
Second, I don’t even know where to start; I loved loved this book. Archer’s Voice was amazing, shouty caps AMAZING!
This was my first book by Ms. Sheridan and it was outstanding!!! I am not sure there are even words for how beautifully touching this story is but I am going to try my best to do it justice without giving away the story, so here goes…
The story of Bree Prescott and Archer Hale truly touched my soul and will live with me for well I am not sure if it will ever leave me. And I read a lot of books lol.
So I am not saying anything not in the blurb Archer is a silent man; literally he can not speak. The way Ms. Sheridan tied this to Bree’s past was masterful and the bonding these two share as they both reveal their pasts to each other drew me to them and made the connection these two share even stronger.
The way Ms. Sheridan unveiled Archer’s story to the reader was so powerful, it pulled at my heart each time a bit more as this poor man’s tortured past was revealed. This poor young boy who was traumatized as a child and caused even more pain by the harsh treatment he received as he grew reminded me of how poorly some people in society behave.
Bree for me was such a contrast to the cold and uncaring truth most of the world often shows. Her openness, her desire to listen to her heart, to see into Archer’s eyes were all so powerful as a reader it pulls you right in and has you rooting for a way for these two to find happy. And the events in Bree’s past allow her to see that Archer is not deaf as the town’s people told her he was for me began a deep connection that so made me love them even more.
As a reader I felt the connection; one that required care and communication that was so new for Archer. The slow evolution of Bree and Archer’s relationship allowed for a foundation of friendship. Archer’s simple gestures to Bree, his small ways of showing he is trying to open up were wonderfully well done and such a reminder that it is the little things that make life special.
I don’t usually love first time encounters; not a couples first time but a person’s. Ms. Sheridan out did herself, all of Archer’s firsts were not only wonderfully written, they felt true to his character and they touched my heart while making it race. I love that Ms. Sheridan reminded the reader that often times nature takes over!
This book not only gave me people to love but secondary characters that became the face of evil, the face of selfish and uncaring and in a few instances reminded me of what sometimes is often worse complacancy in the face of evil. So many people stood by and let Archer down, let this poor boy fall deeper into loneliness, such a reminder to me that we all need to think about how we treat others.
As Bree and Archer get to know each other; as they open their hearts to each other; Ms. Sheriden will have you opening your heart to them as well.
Ok I don’t think this is too spioler-ish and if it is I am sorry but I feel like I have to say it; as with more romance novels there is that separation; well in this one, it was so well done, it had my heart breaking for the one left and the one who felt like they had to leave. The truth is they did have to leave and that time apart well it so made the end believable, tangible and that much more amazing!
The re-connection had me gripping my kindle, I wanted to see them re-connect and I wanted to see them heal. All of that was so well done. It truly had me believing in the power of love!
This book is such a lesson in what it means to be member of society, a lesson in the power of love and maybe even a bit of wake-up call to really think about what your voice is.
The epilogue was not only a wonderful look into the future, it truly shows Archer living his life, finding a way to move forward and be the wonderful man Bree saw beneath it at. I wish I could say more about why this end touched me so much but I really do not want to ruin it for the reader. So please do pick up Archer’s Voice NOW!
Ms. Sheridan from the bottom of my heart, Thank You for bringing Archer Hale into my life!
