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.
