After feeling down about my lack of reading time, Archer’s Voice was exactly what I needed to get me out of my funk! I was a little hesitant because of the hype, like I would be the one to be let down, but Archer’s Voice was everything I hoped it would be.

Bree runs away from her previous life looking for an escape to find some peace and to heal after a particularly horrible event that left her father dead. In this new quiet town she meets Archer, a local man who has his own terrible past which has left him a recluse and with no voice.

The story is told from Bree’s point of view, though we do get a few chapter’s from Archer’s. I really loved the addition of his point of view because not only did it give us a glimpse of his past, we also got to see firsthand how hard it was for him to try to integrate back into society after being closed off for most of his life. So many things in this world, things we may take for granted, were new to him. He had no concept of appropriate social interaction and was a bit naive in many areas. But I found it endearing and kind of adorable just as much as it broke my heart to see his pain. He was sensitive and broken but also protective and loyal. Even though this book was mostly told from Bree’s perspective, and she had her own demons to overcome, it was Archer’s journey that was the true heart of the story. And a beautiful and emotional one it was.

She had told me my voice mattered, and her love made me believe it might be true. And sometimes, that’s all it takes – one person who’s willing to listen to your heart, to the sound no one has ever tried to hear.

I loved Bree too. She was very strong and determined. She was also so patient and kind, the perfect person to help Archer. She never gave up on him, no matter how hard he’d try to push her away. They healed each other in many ways, but also paved the path for them to each reach their own level of healing. I’m pretty sure sign language has never been hotter, and it was such a refreshing addition to the story. And their chemistry was amazing!

It was as if my body was his instrument and he learned to play it so perfectly that the melody vibrated within my very soul. 

Of course the past rears its ugly head and threatens to take this new little bit of happiness these two had made for themselves. Nothing comes easy for these two but oh what a great read this was from start to finish. This book pulled me in and didn’t want to let go. I kept trying to find any time I could to pick this back up and get lost in Bree and Archer’s story. I was engaged and committed to these characters, wanting to know everything all at once, and then feeling a bit of sadness when I came to the end with no more to read. Archer’s Voice was exactly what I needed and I couldn’t recommend it enough!

He pressed his body even closer and a small exhale released from his mouth to mine, as if he was breathing life into me. And maybe he was. Maybe he had been all along.
