"I think every writer stands in the doorway of their prison. Half in, half out. The very act of storytelling is a return to the prison of what torments us and keeps us captive, and writers are repeat offenders."
- Sherman Alexie

One was the greatest rock band of all time, another was a misunderstood poet and Christian convert, and the latter is called, “America’s Pastor.”  The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Billy Graham were the three forces of artistic and spiritual expression in Archer’s childhood, and the trio of figures in her father’s conversion to Christianity and life’s work.

Archer’s memoir, Finding Home with The Beatles, Bob Dylan and Billy Graham is a true account of growing up inside the world of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. For 15 years her family traversed the globe to prepare cities for Billy Graham’s large-scale, sweeping evangelistic meetings.  Her book details the gritty struggles she faced as the new kid in town and the intense anxiety of their transitory life. With humor, insight and help from two of the greatest musical forces on the planet, Archer explores the universal question of, ‘Where is home?’ Through her father’s boss, Billy Graham she finds her way toward the answer to that question.

Archer’s father, Rick Marshall was the director of crusades with Billy Graham for 23 years. He was and still is intimate friends with the man who preached the gospel to millions around the world. When Mr. Graham passes away, much will be said by outside critics and skeptics about his life, but the curious and the celebrant will find Archer’s memoir a first-hand, tender perspective on this extraordinary man.
