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.

After reading many rave reviews and getting several recommendations I finally picked up Archer's Voice by Mia Sheridan. I have to admit that Archer's Voice was one of the most unique books I've read and while I would have liked there to be a little less drama, I still enjoyed reading it.
The book mostly goes from Bree's point of view with a few chapters thrown in from Archer's pov with his past and present. Bree is running from her own demons when she lands up in the small town of Pelion. She is looking to move on from what happened and find her peace. I really liked Bree. She was a sweet and gentle soul. Though I found it a bit difficult to understand how she so easily trusted Archer.
Then we have Archer. Archer has been living in isolation for years, ignored by the town. He is mute and living with a horrible secret. I really felt heart broken for Archer. He is such a great man but life has been so extremely unfair to him. When Bree comes into his life she brings in light and hope but he still has his insecurities and fears.
I loved the way Bree and Archer's love story went. Yes, I would have liked if they'd taken things a bit slower but they had an undeniable attraction between them. The way they communicated with sign language and how easily they could understand each other without words was amazing to watch. I was really happy when they finally got their much deserved happy ending.
Mia Sheridan's writing style is soothing and beautiful. My only issue was the drama and I did wish that Bree and Archer asked others for help rather than being so into their own bubble. The ending should have been a bit more explained but none the less I really liked it. Archer's Voice was a good read.
