"Charming time travel romance"
In 1799 Ramsgil, England, Haslett Ham places his wife
Nelwina on the auction block accusing her of thievery.
She tries to talk him out of the humiliation that both
will suffer, but he just grins at her like she is a
worthless waste of his time. All Haslett can think of his
ridding himself of this bastard daughter of an
aristocrat. Nelwina wishes to be anywhere but in Ramsgil,
but an old gypsy warns her to beware what you wish for.
Chicago based architect Adam Warrick has inherited
Spenceworth and has flown to England to try to work the
finances. He is taking part in one of the famous marriage
auction reenactments and has drawn the role of buying the
wife on sale. Adam buys Nelwina who everyone calls
Jocelyn Tanner. As they fall in love, he wonders about
her sanity and she questions whether he cherishes the
Nelwina essence inside Jocelyn's body or the beautiful
looking woman even as her American husband arrives to
claim his wife.
SPENCEWORTH BRIDE, the sequel to the award winning
SIXPENCE BRIDE, is a charming time travel romance. The
story line grips the audience from the moment a displaced
Nelwina lands in the twenty-first century. As she
struggles to adapt (though perhaps a bit too easily) while
a bewildered Adam wonders what is going on, fans gain a
wonderful tale. Readers will enjoy Virginia Farmer's
latest winner, as Nelwina's tale is an entertaining novel.
