Praise for Painting the Light: “Gunning delivers an atmospheric, character-driven story of a young woman’s struggle at the turn of the 20th century . . . In Ida, Gunning has created a captivating personality. This is one that lingers well after the final page is turned.” -Publisher’s Weekly
A resident of Brewster, Gunning is the author of six acclaimed historical novels: The Widow's War, Bound, The Rebellion of Jane Clarke, Benjamin Franklin's Bastard, Monticello, and Painting the Light. Historical tours based on her novels are given through The Brewster Historical Society.

....run, don't walk, to the nearest nonschool library or to the local bookstore and get whatever it was that they banned. Read whatever they're trying to keep out of your eyes and your brain, because that's exactly what you need to know.” ― Stephen King
