At the Other End:
What happens when a young man's promising future is tragically derailed at the age of eighteen?

Thirty-five-year-old James Milligan, the solitary and impenetrable chief architect at one of Chicago's leading design firms, has never recovered from the horrific death of his best friend nearly two decades before. He's learned that a distant heart is the only way to shut out the nagging guilt and pain that threatens to capsize him at any moment. Only the dying veterans at the Aaron Milligan Palliative Care Center know the depth of overwhelming compassion that James harbors within himself, and he is determined never to let anyone else into his heart—or his future—again.

However, when beautiful and caring nurse Rebecca Doyle enters his world, his hardened exterior reluctantly begins to crack. Will Martin Diggs, the charismatic and perplexing Vietnam War veteran convince James that it's not too late to reclaim his future?

Last Train to Omaha

Last Train to Omaha came about under very extraordinary circumstances. Having been diagnosed with breast cancer last year changed my life – and in many ways, for the better. Taking a step back during my recovery allowed me to see things more clearly and redefine myself to become more of the person I was meant to be. Although my role in life was well defined (wife, mother of four, full time public servant), I was missing something meaningful and deep. Something about me was lost as I trudged through my hectic daily routine and never-ending demands of life. I lost me.

I strongly believe I rediscovered myself through the characters in this book. I was able to seek solace in their ability to overcome diversity with courage in their hearts and the peaceful resignation within the connections they share amongst themselves. I can actually say that each character represents a connection I’ve made in my life.

Through the eyes of James Milligan and his ensemble cast of supporting characters, we see that destiny is not only what life brings us – it’s about how life can be uniquely tailored simply by how we choose to respond to it.

I’d love to hear from you; email me at info@anngillenbooks.com
