Y I Leeabout this book: Two things inspired me to write The Shadowed Valley. First the death of my sister, and second my love of Pilgrims Progress. The book is about a traumatic journey from darkness into light. It is written in honour of my sister, Celia.
The Shadowed Valley is suitable for youth/adult. It does contain mild horror.
Due to loss of memory and circumstances she can't understand, Celia finds herself being taken to Greyache House, a dismal place shrouded in perpetual fog, whose occupants are weird and frightening, especially Crudus the cat. The only person who shows her any kindness is the housekeeper, Mary.
One foggy day while out for a walk in the woods, Celia finds a derelict shed. What the old shed contains astounds her. In the corner covered by a tarpaulin is a large wooden rocking horse. The horse turns out to be the catalyst for a journey that will take Celia through the terrifying darkness that is the land of Dauthus, in search of the shadowed valley.
Will she survive the journey and reach the mighty gate? Will she regain her memory and her life?
