Title: Archer’s Voice
Author: Mia Sheridan
New Adult Contemporary Romance
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.
Re-reading a favorite book is like visiting an old friend, you always get to discover new things, and better appreciate what you like about it in the first place. You get to notice little things, little nuances on the story that you missed the first time.
Mia Sheridan is a favorite author of mine, she writes such unique and emotional stories, each very different from one another but this one still is the one I love the most.
“Try to believe that maybe more light shines out of those who have the most cracks.”
It’s a story of self-discovery, of growing into who you are and being comfortable in your own skin, of overcoming your fears and insecurities, of learning to trust.
You don’t know if you could, but you made it another day didn’t you?
It’s such a beautiful romance, heart-warming and heart breaking all at the same time.
Bree is such a sweet character that it’s just trying to get over a tragic event on her past, she wants to start over, to stand up in her own two feet without fear.
Archer is one of my most beloved male characters, and that is a really long lists 😉 he’s so sweet and intelligent and strong even with all he has gone through, with his disability and his insecurities and his very unusual upbringing. The way we get to see the world through his eyes and discover so many things that are usually taken for granted is very eye opening.
“I’m afraid to love you. I’m afraid that you’ll leave and that I’ll go back to being alone again. Only it will be a hundred times worse because I’ll know what I’m missing. I can’t…” He sucked in a shaky breath. “I want to be able to love you more than I fear losing you”
Their coming together is beautifully done, the struggle to accept each other, the need to be better that fills Archer with insecurities is so real it really hits you.
I know that this type of story might not appeal to everyone but if you love emotional, heart breaking, hopeful romances check this out. Actually why haven’t you read it already, what’s wrong with you? 😀
