Synopsis

From the pages of Molly Eiderdown’s Journal: Memoirs at the Serenity Nursing Home springs the thoughts, feelings, and observations of a woman who writes a new chapter in her own life. At seventy-nine, she enters a nursing home under duress following a heart attack. Forced into this late-life move by her children, who felt concerned about her health and her ability to live on her own, Molly Eiderdown decides to keep a journal to pass the time. She notes on the first page, “It is so boring here that I have just decided to write. I have to write BIG so I can read it because my eyes aren’t so good, but who cares if I fill up my whole under the bed with notebooks. They’ll never find them anyway. No one ever even dusts under there I’ll bet.” Elaine B. Berrier’s Molly Eiderdown’s Journal rests upon the author’s twenty-seven years of experience working with elders as a nurse in long-term care facilities. This roots the novel in the realities of people who live in nursing homes. Presenting a series of journal entries, Molly Eiderdown’s Journal: Memoirs at the Serenity Nursing Home depicts a wise and spirited woman who learns and grows at a time in her life she had thought was too late for such change. If you find yourself drawn to stories of people who triumph over challenges, then Molly Eiderdown’s Journal will present you with a new friend and a source of inspiration. Elaine B. Berrier earned a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and worked with elders for twenty-seven years in long-term care facilities and ten years as a parish nurse. She and her husband live in Massachusetts. She is very involved with her church, having facilitated discussions using her book.
