About A Place To Close My Eyes


Rachel Shelton, RSM’s founder, has written a book called a place to close my eyes.  This book introduces you to Anna Marie, a precious young southern girl who is grows up in the worst of circumstances.  This story follows her as she grows up, moves, away, starts her own life, and then goes back home during her estranged mother’s last days on earth.  Along the way, she encounters Joes; a kind, old black man who lives behind her grandparents’ farm and they form an unusual friendship.  In a place to close my eyes, you will learn the hidden message Joes shares on his front porch while telling his stories.  Despite the setbacks Anna Marie faces, she is triumphant in her faith and view of life.  You will laugh, cry, become angry, wonder how she could survive and marvel at the woman she becomes.  Her soul is so masterfully exposed that she immediately grabs a hold of your imagination and heart and doesn’t let go-even after the last page is turned.
