ILLUMINATING DARK VALLEY
by Pauline Henning
RELEASED DECEMBER 5TH—AVAILABLE NOW!
The Scalini Family enjoyed a resourceful, often creative lifestyle nestled in the Italian Alps in the early 1900s. Always striving for a better life and in an attempt to keep the townspeople from moving, they embark on a quest to reflect the disappearing winter sun to their valley. This engineering feat will take more than their ability, which leads them to seek help from a nearby city. Upon an initial rejection of their invention, they meet a rich entrepreneur with less than honest motives. As events unfold, the family becomes aware of the sinister forces threatening their reputation and, eventually, even their freedom. Mounting incriminations causes Tia Scalini to take matters into her own hands along with Lorenzo, the boy from next door. Join them as they embark on a remarkable adventure to find the evidence needed to exonerate Ruben Scalini and, ultimately, the town. Can they uncover the truth before it’s too late? Will Tia’s tenacity and savvy be enough to free her father and save her beloved Dark Valley?

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Pauline Henning makes her home in Colorado. A retired teacher librarian with 23 years of experience in critiquing literature with her students gave her a unique perspective when writing her first novel. She realized that critiquing is far easier than writing.
Growing up In Washington, D.C., she realized her young desire to be a farmer would need to be pursued in greener pastures, which she embarked on as soon as she was old enough. Not having confidence in her farming ability, she contented herself with a greenhouse in the mountains. She is now caring for her plants and harvesting their best parts just before they expire. Like her plants, she is tending and harvesting her writing self before completely retiring.
