My Review

~Five Amazing Archer Hale & Beautiful Bree Prescott Stars~

Boy what do I say about this book and how do I find the appropriate words?  The first word that comes to mind is AMAZING!  Amazing because it was beautifully written, emotionally felt, engaging and just flawless.  The characters were so beautiful with so much depth to them.  I haven't read a book this wonderful in a long time and I highly recommend this to everyone.

The story of Archer's voice begins with him as a little boy and we learn about this little boy who has been a witness to some very unkind behavior from his father.  The story goes back and forth a bit between his past and his present.  We learn bits and pieces about the terrible tragedies he has been though and what has caused him such pain and agony both physical and emotional.  

You see Archer cannot talk and we are taken to a place in his life where he has been alone for far too long, and where most people think he is deaf.  The way he survived and the way he was treated.  We learn about what happened the day his uncle and mother decided to take him away with them in search of a better life.  

There is so much to learn about Archer and your eagerness to learn will hold you captive throughout the story.  You will not want to put the book down.  Mia Sheridan has an amazing ability to create such a beautiful story and her characters, quite frankly blew me away.

We then meet Bree Prescott.  A woman who is running away.  Trying to find peace.  You see she has suffered some tragedies of her own and so she ends up in Pelion, Maine.  A place where she finds her peace and so much more when she bumps into none other than Archer Hale.

Bree also thinks that Archer is def, but she is so drawn to the man who's face you can barely see from his straggly, long hair to his bearded face that she begins to reach out to him and by doing so she uses sign language, something she learns Archer knows how to do as well and that he actually taught himself.  Aside from signing, Archer has taught himself to do a whole lot.  It was completely amazing.

Anyone can learn to do anything if they have the time.  I have the time.

Bree and Archer began spending time together learning about one another so they essentially became friends. It was not easy for Archer though.

I could figure out advanced masonry diagrams but when it came to other people, I was lost. 

The two of them became very comfortable with one another and Bree confided in him about her past and the tragedies she endured.  Archer on the other hand only shared some, as it was still very difficult for him.

She carried the guilt of not fighting when she should have, and I carried the scar of what happened when you did.

Archer is such a beautiful person inside and out.  The things he said (signed) and the stuff he did just melted my heart throughout the story.  Bree was also a beautiful, loving and caring young woman.  Things would not be easy for the two of them from the outside people as well as their internal struggles.

Needless to say the two of them fell in love but it wouldn't be easy, especially for Archer.  His internal struggles were beautiful yet so sad and once Bree understood his struggles, I must say she was amazing but not without questioning what to do.

Archer~
I love you so much it hurts.

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, and I don't know how.  Teach me, Bree.  Please teach me. Don't let me destroy this.

NOW that right there ^^^sigh

Bree~
How do you teach a man who has lost everything, not to fear it happening again?  How do you teach a person to trust in something none of us can guarantee?

So why can't Archer talk?  What happened to him?  What tragedies have both he and Bree endured and how will they both beat the odds that seem to stand in their way, whether it be physical or emotional.  How will Archer manage to deal with his internal struggles.  What happened to Bree to make her run away for peace.  How will it all end?  Will they get their HEA?

Only you, only ever you.

With that said I leave you, no I urge you, GO READ Archer's Voice if you haven't yet.  You won't be disappointed!

BEST.BOOK.EVER.
