Ms Jeppsen is a new voice in the Western genre but she doesn’t show it. These books are incredibly well researched, written and cleanly edited. Set in a part of the American northwest that I have only rarely seen written about I found myself enthralled by the characters and the stories. Taking the hero from a young and innocent boy to an adult was written with a strong understanding of how a person would react to horrible events at any age. Read this folks. There are more to come.
