I went straight into reading this after finishing the Sixpence Bride by the same author, I was keen to know what happened to Rose when she swapped her life with Jocelyn's . Even though there are references to characters in the Sixpence Bride ,there is no need to have read it to understand and relate to the characters in The Spenceworth bride. The story can be amusing in parts when Rose tries to understand the ways of the 21st century and how she interacts with the other characters especially Adam and Sophia. In parts I found it frustrating that 'Americanisms' were used in the writing when it was clearly set in England, at the time of writing this I have not looked into the authors origin but I do suspect after reading this she is an American. Whilst her character Jocelyn is from America the main characters in this story are English so should remain English.
Despite this it is still a good read
Just a note I believe the main characters name has been changed in more recent editions to Rose but was another name in previous ones

This as you may or may not know, is the sequel to Sixpence Bride. Well I say sequel but it is in actual fact the story of Nelwina Honeycutt, the woman who swapped places with Jocelyn Tanner in Sixpence Bride.

As Jocelyn was transported to the year 1797, Nelwina finds herself in present day. She is, as Jocelyn was, the bride in the travel agency's bride auction. The delightful Adam is the lovely groom to be here, in Sixpence Bride he is the gorgeous man on the tour bus who delighted in Jocelyn's dismay.

Anyhoo, Adam finds himself responsible for Nelwina since it was kinda his fault that she fell and bumped her head at the auction. He's recently gained an inheritance whereby he finds himself the new Lord Spenceworth. Unchanged by his new title though, he strives to bring Spenceworth Manor back to it's regal self.

Nelwina is at a loss however, she finds it quite unnerving that people now travel by automated vehicles which require no horses, that there are huge noisy birds in the sky and that hot water now comes directly from a 'spigot' simply at a twist of the hand! She finds herself very much at home however at Spenceworth since she grew up there as help to her mother's seamstress job.

Enter Sophia, Adam's sprightly mother. She believes in palm readers and past lives etc and so she believes Nelwina's story. She's very understanding and tries to convince Adam of the fact, to no avail. Adam just believes that the bump to Nelwina's head is to blame for all the confusion. Why else would she insist on being called by another name, not remember who she really is or where she came from?

First was kind of fun to read, but this was silly and boring, sorry . More like a fairy tale than an adult book.

A charming time travel 31 Oct 2003
By Darkcat_ak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
When Nelwina desperately wishes to be anywhere but on the auction block as the unwilling participant during an 18th century wife sale she suddenly feels woozy and passes out, only to awaken in the 21st century. Passing through Ramsgil and playing the part of a tourist, Adam Warrick, the new Earl of Spenceworth finds himself the selected "buyer" of Jocelyn Tanner the "wife" up for auction. When he tosses the coin, and the "husband" catches it clumsily causing his purchased "wife" to get knocked unconscious, Adam feels obligated to take her to Spenceworth manor to make sure she doesn't suffer from a concussion.
Returning to her childhood home should have been a relief. However nothing is as it seems for Nelwina. Wanting to stay at Spenceworth, she dives into her new life as she tries to help restore Spenceworth to its previous grandeur. Adam, dealing with a run down estate that sadly lacks finances has little time for romance, then, when his mother unexpectedly shows up and takes his patient under wing, is grateful to have Jocelyn Tanner to keep her occupied. However, every time Jocelyn insists her name really is Nelwina Honeycutt, Adam chooses to continually rack it up to her head injury. But he has a hard time explaining the fact that knows more about Spenceworth manor and gardens than any other soul. For Nelwina, living two-hundred years in the future wasn't what she had expected, nor acquiring another woman's body. The only problem is, how can she adapt to this life and keep from falling in love with Adam, knowing that the real Jocelyn is trapped in the past? Yet how could she leave the love she always yearned for?
The long awaited sequel to SixPence Bride, Virginia Farmer weaves the charming tale of Nelwina Honeycutt. Some of the descriptions (for example of the loo) were humorous and I thought clever. With the changing of bodies between Jocelyn Tanner and Nelwina Honeycutt, this time travel is unique. Not only does Nelwina need to deal with learning new technologies totally foreign to her, she must come to terms with another woman's life. So join Adam and Nelwina on their bumpy little ride as they fall in love. Spenceworth Bride is a delightful tale.

charming time travel romance 18 Sep 2003
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.

I liked this stro, but it wasn't quite as good as the first book I. The series. It was still a really good read.
I adored the heroine. She was so strong, even though she had been through so much.
I also liked the heroine, but he semmed a little wishy washy with his feelings.
I loved the setting and how we got a look at both the present setting the past, through the heroines eyes.
I loved the heroes mother. She was funny and a bit kooky. A great side character.
My only problem with the book is a personal preference. I much prefer time travel romances, when a person travel back in time. But, I still truly enjoyed reading it.
This author has a refreshing writing style. She is very descriptive, without bogging you down with unneeded details. It's a talent most authors just can't grasp. The book was well edited.

Most time travel novels read of one character's journey. They inhabit the body of someone living in the era they are transported to. The "pink elephant in the room" is when one inhabits the body of a previous era, does that person reversley occupy the other? In so many of these novels we never know, although it does not take away from the fine writing and story line. Or we may ask, does the time traveller also remain in their "present" time?

In Ms. Francis' Spenceworth series our questions are answered, and the stories are entertaining, suspensful and humourous. She describes the scenes, smells and clothing in detail enough that allow the reader to envision and feel, both physically and emotionally,
