Great Story - Great Narration!

This is the second Kirby Jonas book I have read/listen to. I chose his books, because it was said he was another Louis L'Amour. The first book I read was good, Lady Winchester is great!

Kirby Jonas is similar to L'Amour in his ability to transport you into the story. With both authors it's as if you're there, riding the trail with the main characters of the book. That's a rare gift, most books are more like watching a movie.

Kirby Jonas also has the ability, like L'Amour, to describe settings and territory you can picture in your minds eye, without excessive words.

Another way Kirby Jonas is like L'Amour is he spends countless hours in research, and takes painstaking care to be precise with details.

Whether you like Westerns, or not, you should like Lady Winchester. The story takes place in Idaho Territory in the 1880's. There was little law, and the law there was had hundreds of square miles to cover. So when Kathryn (Kate) Winchester's husband is shot down by unknown assassins it is up to her to find out who wants him dead, and why. But Kathryn Winchester was raised as a peaceful Quaker and knows nothing about protecting herself, so she must learn the hard ways of the West in order to protect her family and survive.
