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.

Number 5 of the Civil War Brides Series:
Like the first four, this book contains time travel, history, mystery, romance and some modern humor. I loved the first book in the series, I think this is my second favorite, although they are all great reads. Victoria is one of many before her who has been thrown into the middle of the civil war battle from the modern day Chicago where she was working on her photography and dodging the FBI who are trying to find out where these people keep disappearing to. They want to protect Victoria, she just wants to be left alone.
Once she has been thrown into the Civil War era of 1864, she finds out where the people before her have been transported to, and by the time she finds out how and why she ended up thrown into the past, she is told that she can return, will she return? She has a man who is constantly lurking in background, creeping her out with his constant strange comments. Obviously a mad man, he does kidnap her, you'll have to read the book to see how that turns out.
Tracey Jane Jackson, author of the Civil War Brides Series, is quite the Civil War buff. She weaves history into her books, much history many of us may have learned and forgotten while in school. While reading the time travel series you will find yourself learning again about the war between the states. It is told in such a way that you learn the history this author has in her head and heart as she loves this time period, while enjoying great stories much of which were true. Of course the time travel is not, but that is that the great thing about fiction, you can weave stories around true events, and throw in all the extras that make a good story. This author does just that!
f you haven't read the previous four I suggest you do so, you'll find out what you've missed, they are all great reads! Don't miss out on this number five or the following books. Tracey has 3 more books up her sleeve!
I give this one five stars!
Here is the description from the back of the book:
Victoria Carrington is a small town southern debutante who is accepted into college in Chicago. Her roommate goes missing, and Victoria’s family is convinced she is in danger. Alone and somewhat irritated by the FBI’s forced protection, she throws herself into her passion, photography.
Her photography studio is housed in an historic building. While she is there one afternoon, she is led to a room that does not appear to have been touched in 100 years. She finds an old hand tinted Ambrotype of a soldier buried in a stack of paintings. As she is staring at his face, her world begins to spin.
Quincy Butler is trapped in a hell he could never have imagined. Fighting yet another battle in The War Between the States, he is shocked to encounter a woman on the field. When she begins to speak to him, he realizes she is southern, and assumes she is the enemy.
His intention to apprehend and take her to his superiors is cut short however, when he is shot and wounded.
As Victoria tends to Quincy’s injuries, will she be able to convince him to trust her?
When she is kidnapped by a mad man, will Quincy save her before she is lost to him forever?
