Overview

Emma Wellington is dealing with the strange disappearance of her sister and brother-in-law, and no one is certain they're even still alive. Saddled with their home drowning in probate, she is forced to take over the settling of their estate.

As she's standing in her sister's library, possibly for the last time, she sees a strange vision and then her world goes black. She awakens to find herself in an old-fashioned carriage house, facing a man in top hat and tails.

Clayton Madden is in Lincoln's War Cabinet and after arriving home one evening, discovers a beautiful woman in the shadows of his carriage house. He is immediately enamored with the tall beauty, despite her strange speech and dress. His intention is to get to know her further, but she disappears in the middle of the night with no explanation as to where she's gone.

Will he find her before a deeper plot threatens her life? Will Clayton and Emma find a love that is everlasting?

Meet the Author

Tracey was born and raised in New Zealand, and that's where her love of horses was formed. Her grandfather taught her to ride at four years old, and she couldn't get enough.

Her love and passion for Abraham Lincoln and the entire Civil War era might have come from her American father, however, he lays no claim to influencing her. Tracey's mother used to tell her she was simply born in the wrong place in the wrong time.

Tracey hasn't always wanted to write. It took her a long time to get started, but now she doesn't seem to be able to stop, the joy of escaping to the 1860s is too much fun.

She's been happily married and gooey in love with her husband for seventeen years. They live in the Pacific Northwest with their two sons.

    Reading this story was interesting in some ways but left me wond

    Reading this story was interesting in some ways but left me wondering how the iPod could stay charged without electricity and why more details about the time the story takes place were not included. The idea was a good one but I don't know that it was told in a way that made it feel "real". There were some fantastic opportunities for writing a great story but more than one scene felt rushed and missing either background information or being true to the period.

    I am now reading the final book (9th) in this series....boy am I going to be sad when finished. All the characters are brought into each book which makes it nice. You do't have to say 'goodbye' to a character when you've finished. GREAT SERIES.

    Great  beginning to a wonderful series! 
    For the second book in this series, this book catches you right up or is a mysterious stand alone and very good beginning. 
    This story is about losing family and then maybe be gaining family through time travel.
    Will Emma find her way, and will Clayton make the connection and find her?
    In this historic moment in time, will love be found?
    Really recommend reading this bold book that bring you to a new era.

    Book one was better

    A little over sexualized. Stopped just shy of romance novel porn. Book one was better.

    Highly Recommended- get the whole series

    Enjoyed following Emma on her journey to the past. And her discovery of what happened to her sister & the love of her life. Like the tie in of other characters from book to book in the series. Look forward to additional books in this series.

    A charming read!! Highly reccomended!!

    From the first page I loved the main character's wit and view of things. I loved the smooth way Tracey Jackson handles the time travel was nice and the fun situations that arise are priceless.
    I love the cast of characters and have already bought book 3 to get back into the mix again.
    One note, I struggled personally with the dilemma of knowing at the end of the civil war the sad end of President Lincoln, could I personally not tell the president. I talked it over with my husband, just for a conversation piece, then later when reading the characters had the same conversation. I loved it!
    The Bride found was a funny and touching read. Very organic and never forced. This author has talent. Cannot wait to see her on the best-sellers list.

    won't read more

    I really wanted to like this book. The heroine is a whiney brat and that makes it difficult. Two books into the series and the only thing more irritating than Sophie and Emma is their relationships with men. Done.

    Hello

    Well-written as far as grammar goes but the story is as rushed as the first book maybe more so at 243 pages. Sophie is still a spoiled 15-16 year old at 26-27 with hardly a thought but to get her own way. A short romance appropriate for older teens but beware the abrupt ending.

    Civil War Time Travel

    I've read a lot of time travel novels, but never one to this era. It was an awesome read. I truly enjoyed it. It leaves you guessing and trying to figure certain points, but it doesn't take away it adds dimension and character development

    A historical read!!!!

    This novel has the perferct amount of romance mixed into a historical setting. I'm giving it 4 stars because some parts were dragged out a bit.

    Book 2 of the Civil War Bride Series - A fabulous read!

    What a great book, rich in history (Civil War), time travel, romance, and intrigue!

    A sequel to "The Bride Price" which is a fabulous first book of The Civil War Bride Series. You needn't read it before "The Bride Found" although you will find that they do build on each other in such a way that the second book is really a must. You want to find out what happened to the characters whose stories you became so invested in with the first book.

    Some of the time there are books written in sequel, and if you read them too quickly, you lose something and they become too predictable. This book does not fall into that category, if you read the first and then pick this one up, you are just as interested in finding out what happens to the characters! Although the characters of the first book are present, this book introduces more and adds to the mix.

    The book ended in such a place that I was left wanting, setting me up to want the third book in the series. I was surprised when it ended, thinking a while, of course she would end the book here, it's perfect!

    Although the characters are stuck in 1863, they share quite a bit of modern humor, lost on those that have lived only in that era. Quite a bit of explaining!

    Pick this book up, but do yourself a favor and buy the set, you won't go wrong! I haven't read the third book in the series so can't speak of it but can only imagine that the author did herself proud with the third.

    Here is the description from the back of the book:

    Emma Wellington is dealing with the strange disappearance of her sister and brother-in-law, and no one is certain they're even still alive. Saddled with their home drowning in probate, she is forced to take over the settling of their estate.

    As she is standing in her sister's library, possibly for the last time, she sees a strange vision and then her world goes black. She awakens to find herself in an old-fashioned carriage house, facing a man in top hat and tails.

    Clayton Madden is in Lincoln's War Cabinet and after arriving home one evening, discovers a beautiful woman in the shadows of his carriage house. He is immediately enamored with the tall beauty, despite her strange speech and dress. His intention is to get to know her further, but she disappears in the middle of the night with no explanation as to where she's gone.

    Will he find her before a deeper plot threatens her life?
    Will Clayton and Emma find a love that is everlasting?
