20 Jun CHNIG AGM Keynote Speaker announcement!


CHNIG is honored to announce that Dr. Cheryl van Daalen-Smith will be kicking off the CHNIG AGM with a presentation on her new book.

The Chronicles of Paisley Corners:

How a Nurse Turned Her Love of Community Health Nursing into a Debut Novel

In The Chronicles of Paisley • Corners, the author draws from her expertise as a public health nurse, a role she compares to the wind: rarely seen, yet a presence that’s felt. With gentle nods to social issues and research around real historical events, an array of stories that focus on the wants, wounds, and secrets of the village residents will have readers rooting out loud for their favorite character. Much of the book is seen through Kick’s observant eyes, from witnessing the trauma associated with being an outcast to discovering the lengths people will go to shroud a secret. The links she sees between her rescue barn and her nursing practice – like beauty from ugliness or hope from neglect – gives us pause to contemplate the true meaning of belonging. 

The comings and goings of this friendly and compassionate public health nurse provide a window into endearing rural characters who just want to matter. 

Join the author to hear her writing journey.

Cheryl will be available to sign copies and talk with anyone thinking of beginning to write their own reflections.

CHNIG will be giving away 10 copies of The Chronicles of Paisley Corners as door prices!
