Amongst those of a certain age, loss is inevitable and certain. This book eases this suffering to an extent, offering hope of reconnection.

Author Cynthia Fraser Graves knows all about loss and anguish. She lost her husband in 1994, a tragic event that sent her into years of unresolved grief. Drawing inspiration from this, she pens a harrowing yet inspirational tale in “Dusk on Route 1” (published by Partridge India).

Pamela Iverson is informed of a coming tragedy by a kaleidoscope of monarchs as they launch their yearly migration on a Maine beach. This triggers her journey as she descends into the dark night of the soul. In the numbing grip of powerful grief, she asks for help to regain her footing in this new and dark world. Her rescue brings her into the lives of others who are at risk themselves during the Christmas Eve Blizzard of 1998. How will it all turn out for them?

With its well-drawn characters and a compelling plot, “Dusk on Route 1” will appeal to women and men who have experienced catastrophic loss and suffered in silence. Readers can also get a glimpse into the state of Maine and the interesting natives exposed in the lyrical and sharp images painted by the novel. It will impart to them a message of faith and hope amid dark and trying times.

“Amongst those of a certain age, loss is inevitable and certain. This book eases this suffering to an extent, offering hope of reconnection,” Graves says. “It speaks to the belief that we are never alone or forsaken, that a new path can be found through any dark night, and that miracles happen.”
