Sarah Pardee Winchester grew up in New Haven, Connecticut where she married William W. Winchester, son of the entrepreneur who founded the Winchester rifle company, which became the largest gun company in the world. At its peak, many members of the Winchester family started dying: Sarah's sister-in-law, her only child, herfather-in-law, and finally, her husband. Because of the succession, Sarah found herself heir to the Winchester fortune. And because her life span exactly coincided with the popularity of Spiritualism, Sarah went to a medium in Boston who told her that evil spirits, killed by Winchester rifles, were murdering her family in revenge. Given advice to thwart them, she moved to San Jose, California becoming an early feminist and creating a new life for herself: one of eccentricity, romance, and intrigue, while overcoming powerful forces against her. Because of her beliefs, she truly felt that evil spirits surrounded her. Her fame drew a Victorian version of paparazzi, one of which nearly killed her. She battled behind the scenes with Theodore Roosevelt and local hypocrites; and was buried alive in the 1906 San Andreas Earthquake. Even with all of this, she remained kind-hearted and sane. Her home remains today as one of the largest Victorian mansions ever built.

About the Author:

Although Roger Rule wrote his first book twenty years ago, Sarah is his first novel. Rule is a graduate of the University of Missouri and a published author of authoritative books regarded as the reference source in their respective fields. A recognized Winchester expert, as well as a builder himself, he became interested in Sarah when first touring the Winchester Mystery House in the seventies. About Sarah, he says, "Researching and telling her story nearly became an obsession." After serving a short stint as an infantry airborne officerin the U.S. Army, Rule became a real estate developer in California for twenty-two years, where he reared his family and married his second wife, Eileen. Mr. Rule is past president of seven companies and is acknowledged in Who's Who in California, Personalities of America, Who's Who in Finance and Industry in America, and International Businessmen's Who's Who. In 1995, he moved to Hawaii where one of his companies now owns a large retirement facility in Kailua-Kona. . . "Regency atHualalai." Recently, he resumed his writing interests, writing screenplays, business books, professional business plans for world-renown companies; andmost recently, this first novel.
