Set in a small nursing home in Kansas, From Here to Everlasting is the story of  Maggie Malone, RN, her friends and co-workers, and the residents they care for and about at Shady Oaks.

Maggie is both caring and competent in her job, a loyal friend, and a good listener. She's the nurse we'd all want to have. In her personal life, an alcoholic father and distant mother have left her feeling insecure. Her relationship with them is distant and difficult, until her mother calls to tell Maggie her dad had a heart attack. Will she be able to offer the support they need without sustaining further damage?

Mrs. Malone's attitude toward her daughter lies at the root of Maggie's insecurity. Can Shady Oaks' feisty new resident, a friend of Maggie's beloved Aunt Tillie, help Maggie understand her past, heal from the hurt, and dare to create a different future?

Maggie is supported by her friends and co-workers, the special love of the residents she serves, memories and dreams of Aunt Tillie, and a new relationship with Paul, a mysterious man who isn't quite what he seems.

The nursing home setting allows readers an inside view of what a good nursing home feels like and how it functions. This novel doesn't shy away from the reality of depression, dementia, and other medical conditions. It remains warm, positive, and uplifting despite them.


Excerpt

"...I trusted you to tell me what you thought I needed to know when the time was right. And while we're emptying out skeletons, what makes you think you'd be any better for me than I am for you?"
"What do you mean?"
"You question everything I say, like I'm a child that can't be trusted. What makes you think you have all the right answers?"
"I do that?" Maggie was stricken. Her face drained of color. She sat down abruptly on a bale of straw.
"Is the Pope Catholic?" Paul's frustration registered in her voice.
