Overview

Margaret O'Donnel is the human name taken by an alien envoy on Earth to orchestrate a first contact. Circumstance brings her and a human named Lawrence Casey together, and plunges them into Earth's past to escape a band of mercenaries from her side of the universe sent to deliver her to her father's enemies. The time is eighteen seventy-five. The place is Wyoming. Our time travelers land in the middle of a range war between the mountain and valley ranchers. Taking sides sets in motion the future events that lead to the destruction of a third of Earth's population. Help is on the way with the knowledge that could restore Earth's timeline. There is a chance to fix it if they can avoid capture by the mercenaries or death at the hands of the valley ranchers.

    Encounter

    This is one book that is hard to put down. The plot of this story is very good , encompassing both the Space Age and the Old West. If you like science fiction and or a good western this is the book. The story line is interesting and suspensful, keeps one on the edge of one's seat and looking forward to the time you can get back to reading it again. The writing style is concise and puts you right in the middle of the story with the characters. I hope the author sells a ton of them.
