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.
Archer Hale’s voice was one of the most beautiful things in the whole wide world.
It’s official. Mia Sheridan is a writing genius and with this installment, she has cemented herself as one of my favorite authors. This is the fourth book in the Sign of Love Series and I just cannot get enough of it. Not only is each book a standalone, but it seems like each book gets better and better. The Hero in this book floored me. Archer made me a swoony mess.
The most beautiful kind of fate.
Bree Prescott was running away from a nightmare. Months prior to hopping into her car headed to the small town of Pelion, Maine, she witnessed the murder of beloved father. She wanted to start fresh, even if it was only a temporary escape. What she didn’t expect is to meet the town recluse, Archer Hale.
Something about Archer Hale intrigued me - something I couldn’t put my finger on. Something that went beyond the fact that he couldn’t hear or speak and that I was intimately acquainted with that particular disability. I pondered it for a minute, but couldn’t come up with an answer.
Archer Hale is an enigma - to the town, to its people and especially to Bree. He lost his parents and his Uncle Connor when he was only seven years old. He also lost the ability to speak that fateful night. He lived with his rather strange Uncle Nathan since that night, but when he lost him, he found himself alone; his existence secluded one. He rarely ventures outside his property. The townsfolk are very weary of him. To them, he just…exists. When he met Bree, he couldn’t believe that this woman wanted to know him…Him! She made him believe that he mattered, that his voice mattered.
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.
Archer is such a lost soul. I love Heroes like him. He’s vulnerable, but it wasn’t his handicap that made him such. It was everything around him – the townsfolk, his so-called family, and even his looks – the full on beard and long hair did nothing but make him more invisible. His long isolation only added to his insecurities and it seemed that no amount of reassurance from Bree could ever ease him. So where do they go from here?
Only you, only ever you.
I loved this story. Everything about it just clicked. I easily connected with the H/h, especially with Archer. I adored him so much. As for Bree, she was absolutely perfect for him; they were designed for each other and once you read this you will come to the same conclusion too. And their chemistry?! Seriously HOT!Yea. I didn’t think it was possible, but I think this may be my favorite so far of the series. Whatever Mia Sheridan publishes next, I will automatically buy it. This was pure gold.
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 try to believe that maybe more light shines out of those who have the most cracks.
