Overview

To be sold, on the morrow at market, my wife, Rose Ham. She is stout of body, standing firm on her posterns. She is strong and can sow and reap. She stitches a fine seam and can read and do sums. She is headstrong but, if managed properly, will follow meekly any man’s lead.

Rose stood on the auction block, praying to better her life. But as the illegitimate daughter of a nobleman and the wife of a drunken sot, she doubted her prayers would be answered—especially with the louts gathered around her.

A stranger steps up and answers her prayer, but something’s amiss. Her clothing, which once hugged her body, now hangs loose and her long, blonde hair is shockingly short and dark. It isn’t long before she discovers the unbelievable—she’s in another woman’s body and over two hundred years in the future.

As the last living male in the Warrick line, Adam Warrick inherited Spenceworth and the title to go with it. Unfortunately, becoming a modern-day English earl didn’t include the funds to repair and maintain the manor. While checking out the local tourism in a nearby village, Adam finds himself participating in the reenactment of an eighteenth century “wife sale.” Little does he know that the “wife” he purchased for a mere pound had lived at Spenceworth in another era and will become his priceless Spenceworth Bride.

Meet the Author

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!

    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 illegitmate daughter of an aristocrat. Nelwina wishes to be anywhere but in Ramsgil, but an old gypsy warns her to beware what you wish for. <P>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. <P>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.
