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.

Sometimes in life you are lucky enough to find a book that takes you to another time and place. You are utterly powerless to do anything else, you live and breathe the author’s words and just sit back in awe never wanting the story to ever come to an end. It moves you, makes you feel, makes you fall in love. This is the hardest review I’ve ever written. There are not enough words to explain how beautiful, how phenomenal, how perfect this novel is. Mia Sheridan’s Archer’s Voice has to be one of the best books I’ve ever read in my entire life. And I read, a lot. It was poetic, really. Just moving and powerful. She is a genius and took me on a journey I will never, ever forget. It literally took my breath away. She brought emotions out of my soul–emotions I didn’t know existed. Time stopped. My breathing stopped.
Bree Prescott is starting over. She picks up and moves to a lakeside town in search of peace. She’s had a painful past and is desperate to start fresh. She is an amazing character. So strong, so loving, so patient.
She meets Archer Hale and her world seems to stop. They are drawn to each other–so many powerful emotions.
“As I stared at him, it felt like something moved between us, almost as if I should reach out and try to grab the air surrounding our bodies-like perhaps my hand would come back holding something tangible, something soft and warm.”
Archer is a loner, choosing to only venture out if absolutely necessary. He is so misunderstood. No one knows him or cares to even try. He lives a life secluded from the outside world.
Archer, oh how I love you. You have ruined any other chance for me to love another male character in a book. Your voice, your words, your love seeped into the depths of my soul. I can only hope that some day my daughters find someone just like you. The way you loved Bree–to the end of the earth and back was just so incredibly heart stopping. And Bree, what an incredibly strong person you are. You listened when no one else would. When no one else cared.
“It does hurt. It does because I’m afraid to love you. I’m afraid you’ll leave and I’ll go back to being alone. Only it’ll be 100 times worse because I’ll know what I’m missing… I want to be able to love you more than I fear losing you, and I don’t know how. Teach me Bree. Please teach me. Don’t let me destroy this.”
Imagine feeling that way? It gives me chills just thinking about it. To love someone to the very depths of your being, two people become one. To fear being without the one who owns your heart. To fear being alone, lost.
“Do you feel that? This is how you affect me. My heart is pounding, because I want you to kiss me so badly that I can barely breathe.”
Just pure brilliance. That is the only way I can describe Mia’s writing. I don’t even think brilliance is a strong enough word. She captivates you, leaves you breathless. Do not miss Archer’s Voice. It is hands down the most melt you soul, steal your heart book you’ll ever read.
Archer’s Voice left me with a beautiful message. Never take life for granted. Love. Live. Be grateful. Mia has earned an uncountable amount of starts for this book. Mia, you amaze me. Your gifted, and you have a beautiful heart. I can not wait to hear your voice in all the books you’ll share with us in the future! I’ll leave you with one last quote that will stay with me forever.
“Bad things don’t happen to people because they deserve for them to happen. It just doesn’t work that way. It’s just… life. And no matter who we are, we have to take the hand we’re dealt, crappy though it may be, and try our very best to move forward anyway, to love anyway, to have hope anyway… to have faith that there’s a purpose to the journey we’re on.”
And that my friends, is the the most powerful message of all.
