“You brought the silence,
The most beautiful sound I’d ever heard”

Here, she meets Archer Hale, an isolated, lonely man, whose soul wounds are even greater than hers. Archer is a social outcast and Bree is the first person in town to approach him. Once their friendship begins to grow, they find solace in each other.

Archer’s Voice by Mia Sheridan – book review

Oh my God, what a book!!! Archer’s Voice is the story of two damaged souls who struggle to find their peace. It is a book about suffering, but also about healing and mostly, about a love so powerful that mends the deepest wounds of the soul. The characters’ journey toward healing is intense, full of angst and drama, so I warn you to be prepared for an emotional rollercoaster. The narrative is both from Archer’s and Bree’s point of view.

Archer’s story will break your heart. I never thought that I could fall so helplessly in love with this type hero. I don’t want to give spoilers, so I will only say that Archer isn’t the ordinary male character that readers are used to; in fact, in many ways he is completely the opposite. But I assure you that you will love him just as much, if not more. Archer is a loner, until he meets Bree. As a lover, he is gentle, protective, thoughtful and kind.

He is physically and emotionally damaged, the depth of his childhood trauma constanly influencing his life. It is painful to see how much he struggles to overcome his fears.

“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.”


Bree was everything and more that a reader could wish from the heroine. She was so supportive of Archer, reassuring him constantly and trying to ease his worries. I liked how she always tried to protect him and I admired her for how devoted she was to him. I appreciated Bree for not giving up on Archer and for having the courage to love him, despite people’s prejudices. She was such a kind and beautiful soul.

“It was my deepest hope that my love would be enough to heal his wounded heart.”


Also, I was satisfied with the way in which the people in the community redeemed themselves at the end of the book.

Similar book recommendations

I wasn’t sure if I should make this recommendation, because the book that I want to suggest to you is so similar, and yet so different to Archer’s Voice. I am referring to Tied by Carian Cole. Tied shares many similarities to Mia Sheridan’s novel: in both books the hero is a loner, an outcast and a damaged soul. Also, both male characters had a tragic past and they struggle with the consequences of it. Both of these books emphasize that love can heal any damaged soul and they share the process of it.

Yet, keep in mind that as similar as these novels are, they are also in many ways different. But I am pretty sure that if you liked Archer’s Voice, you will also like Tied by Carian Cole.

OH! I almost forgot to mention that both books have cute little pets. 🙂
