Winchester 1886 by William W. & J. A. Johnstone

Title:  Winchester 1886
Author:  William W. Johnstone & J. A. Johnstone
Pages:  384

My rating is 5 stars.
The Old West brings to mind a raw, unbroken and lawless time in history.  What draws readers of all ages to books that capture the imagination and heart of audiences?  For me, it is the stories that bring to life both fictional and historical characters along with the lawless and the lawful.  It also is a timeframe to get lost in where daily living was treacherous and it took hard work to eke out a living with families under threat from various people or diseases.
Most of all I love westerns that are well written and tell stories without describing gruesome details, leaving that to the imagination of readers.  In this novel, I have to say the Johnstones outdid themselves!  Here is tale that has a variety of storylines such as a family of lawmen who passed down their convictions from generation to generation.  The plot also has readers following this special rifle to see if it arrives to its final destination safely or if it is stolen and used for nefarious reasons.
Authors that write with such knowledge along with a great imagination are authors to go back to again and again as they bring more wonderful tales to enjoy.  The Johnstones excel at this and have for years.  I hope you will read their wonderful books too.  My next book to enjoy will be Winchester 1887.  Look up the authors’ website and consider joining their book club so you can receive their newest books every month for a whole year!  Plus, they provide a book list so readers can locate books in the multiple series that are available!  Join me in the old west and get ready for action, adventure and suspense!
So mount up, gear up and let’s ride!
