Overview

The reenactment of an eighteenth-century wife sale sounded like fun to Jocelyn Tanner. But then one small pink foil star changed her entire life.
Cast back in time she finds herself inhabiting another woman�s body and she�s being sold to the highest bidder. And a very handsome one at that. No matter that his chauvinistic attitude ruffles her feathers, her heart doesn�t listen to her head. But will her knowledge of the future be her doom or her salvation?
Finding a wife isn�t as easy as Garren Warrick, the Earl of Spenceworth thought. Time was fast running out for him to enter into wedlock or be disowned. He should have spent more time looking over the crop of marriage-minded ladies and less time in his club drinking and avoiding them. Desperate and just a little hungover, he comes upon a wife sale and realizes the solution to his problem is just a sixpence away.
But has he gotten more than he bargained for? Can he unravel the mystery behind the odd words she uses and her obsession with something called �ab crunches?� And what about her claim of being from the future? She�s beautiful and well-educated and when he looks into her soft gray eyes and touches her smooth, warm skin, she steals his heart. But can he truly embrace the growing love without unraveling the mystery behind the odd words she uses and her obsession with something called �ab crunches?� And what about her claim of being from the future?


Little does he know he�s gotten much more for his money than he bargained�she�s beautiful, well-educated, but talks a little oddly and has an obsession with something called �ab crunches.� And let�s not forget her claim of being from the future. But when he looks into her soft gray eyes and touches her smooth, warm skin, his heart ignores it all and he begins to see her as a kindhearted, loving woman with a few little quirks.

This is an updated version of the print book released in 2000. Nelwina's name has been changed to Rose.
Look for Rose's story, Spenceworth Bride, coming in February 2012.

My storytelling career started at an early age when I, a fair-skinned redhead, attempted to convince my classmates that I was an Indian princess. Unfazed by this initial failure, I continued to spin tales about majestic castles, shiny knights on white horses and redheaded damsels in distress. So writing romance was a logical progression for me. I'm occasionally drawn from my fantasy world when my husband discovers yet another renovation project that I'm just dying to do!

The fun begins when Jocelyn Tanner, jilted by her fiance, decides to go ahead and take the wedding trip to England she planned to take with her new husband. On the trip, she participates in a historical reenactment of a wife sale--where she is the wife for sale--and finds herself sold to a man named Garren Warrick for sixpence. When he carries her off, she thinks the reenactment has gone a bit too far, and she's ready to get back on the tour bus...then slowly comes to realize that she has been transported to eighteenth-century England where she is, indeed, Garren's wife. 'Sixpence Bride' is an engaging time-travel romance. In her debut novel, the author displays a light touch and brings to life a heroine who is both vulnerable and strong and has enough wackiness to accept the strangeness of her situation with humor and practicality. For instance, finding herself in a fuller body, she gets serious about her ab crunches--much to the consternation of the Warrick household. I won't spoil the joke of the character she chooses to portray at a costume party. Suffice it to say that the charm of this story is the big wink the author shares with her readers...WISE Writers and Readers Recommended Read!!

Virginia Farmer is a talent! With Sixpence Bride she had written a novel that transports the reader through time to a story of a passionate love. She deftly weaves history and humor and romance to create a spell-binding, impressive debut novel. Buy this book, the hilarious lines alone will make you glad you did. Laugh and sigh...

I started this book early afternoon and finished it by the end of the same day! With 4 children, that says alot! The characters were rich and well devoloped, the action never stopped. I agree with the previous review in hoping the next book is about Nelwina's journey to this time! If you like time travel, don't miss out on this one!

A wife sale reenactment, a twist in time and Jocelyn Tanner finds herself in another woman's body and whisked away by an arrogant earl bent on revenge. Garren Warrick, the Earl of Spenceworth, soon learns that making Jocelyn his bride does not make her his wife. And though she comes from a world he'll never know, Garren will risk his heart and the laws of time to hold tight to his Sixpence Bride. Please note, the actual release date is June 13--this is the release date from my publisher. Also, my name is Virginia Farmer, not Virginia E Farmer!
