Author Anne Hutcheson writes about the emotional and physical costs of suicide
In 2020, 45,979 people died by suicide in the U.S. Each one of those had friends, family and loved ones that cared for them, amounting to a much greater toll that was affected. “Peaceful Waters”, is a story that shows how suicide affects those that are left behind.
The focus of this book follows a woman named Fen McCallin, who recently suffered the loss of her best friend and lover, Donovan, to suicide. Fen is haunted by Donovan’s ghost as she attempts to work through her stages of grief. She embarks on a physical journey that she has always wanted to go on and this physical journey leads to emotional and mental healing that transforms Fen to come out stronger on the other side.
“I would like this book to be read, shared, and discussed creating a better understanding of how suicide affects many people in many different ways,” Hutcheson said. “I would like greater cognizance of the importance of keeping the good memories and moving forward.”
Hutcheson wrote this book to entice conversation, as well as keeping good memories and moving forward.
“This is a love letter dedicated to those who have lost someone dear to suicide and who must reemerge to life and to love,” Hutcheson said.
