About Tracey Jane Jackson

I was born and raised in New Zealand, and that’s where my love of horses was born. My grandfather taught me to ride at four years old, and I couldn’t get enough.

My love and passion for Abraham Lincoln and the entire Civil War era might have come from my American father, however, he lays no claim to influencing me. My mother used to tell me I was simply born in the wrong place in the wrong time.

I haven’t always wanted to write. It took me a long time to get started, but now I don’t seem to be able to stop, the joy of escaping to the 1860s is too much fun.

I’ve been happily married and gooey in love with my husband for eighteen years. We live in the Pacific Northwest with our two sons.

The Bride series is not only wonderfully written with a Civil War historical background but they have a fabulous romance about them. Anyone that enjoys this genre in a story line, will not be disappointed in this series written by Tracey Jane Jackson. I own all of her books in this series and I highly recommend them, as I think you will thoroughly enjoy them.

This novel is a must for anyone who is interested in our history. The time forward and back give a good understanding of how rustic and rough it was especially during the civil war and how people had to get by. It is a fasinating read.

I only recently have been introduced to the Civil War Bride Series - most recently The Bride Found. I travel for my job and spend many hours in airports and on airplanes - am always looking for a good read. Am looking forward to reading the third book in this series - always fun to be taken to another place and time, even if only for a little while.

I was surprised how good this was. The research was extensive and the writers love affair with the Civil War and America is carefully woven into every word. A smart and well written novel. Can't wait to read the next one.

Tracey really has a winner with her Bride series. Love the time travel and how everything unravels to bring family together again. Emma and Clayton's story is both beautiful and poignant.

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 some 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?
