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 SIGN OF LOVE NOVEL, BASED ON SAGITTARIUS.
This is the first time I have read a book written by Mia Sheridan. I am really glad I took the time to read this one.
Archer is a 23 year old man who had been raised, since he was a 7 yr old boy, by a “not so all there” uncle, but a very loving/caring uncle. When Archer was a boy he had a devastating incident happen that caused him damage to his voice box and was no longer able to speak. He could hear just fine but no one tried to get to know him well enough to find that out or to try and find out what kind of person Archer Hale actually was.
Folks around town did not pay him much mind until someone new came to town. Bree was just looking for a place to get herself back together emotionally. What she found was a “new” life and a true love, 2 things she was NOT looking for. After doing some shopping, she has an accidental meeting with Archer in the parking lot of the store. From there on her curiosity gets the best of her and she pursues getting to know Archer a little better. Both have a lot to work out – but luckily Bree’s father had been deaf and so she knew sign language as her 2nd language and since Archer had taught himself sign language, it was a beginning to their bond.
I really liked getting to know both characters and I enjoyed the journey that the author took me on as they went through their ups & downs. Close to the ending something happens at the local diner that Bree works at that has my emotions in all screwed up. But it doesn’t end there and the author redeems herself. If it had, I probably would not have even reviewed the book.
If you are looking for a book that makes you smile and is just a really good story – then this is the book for you. This is a book that was very enjoyable to read and not too heartbreaking that I couldn’t finish the read. It was a “time well spent” reading this story and it has left me with the feeling to take more notice of the folks around me.
