About the Author

Tracey was born and raised in New Zealand, and that's where her love of horses was formed. Her grandfather taught her to ride at four years old, and she couldn't get enough.
Her love and passion for Abraham Lincoln and the entire Civil War era might have come from her American father, however, he lays no claim to influencing her. Tracey's mother used to tell her she was simply born in the wrong place in the wrong time. 
Tracey hasn't always wanted to write. It took her a long time to get started, but now she doesn't seem to be able to stop, the joy of escaping to the 1860s is too much fun.
She's been happily married and gooey in love with her husband for sixteen years. They live in the Pacific Northwest with their two sons.

The book had a good premise but poor follow-through. After the heroine, Sophie, makes that initial jump in time, it seemed like the author didn't know what to say to fill the pages so she repeated the same sequence over and over again. When the hero, Jamie, finally arrives, that sequence changes and then that sequence repeats over and over again.

When someone in the story asks a Time defender to explain time travel, she replies something like, "We don't have time to get into it right now. Suffice to say it works." Uh, then why mention it? It made me feel like the writer couldn't explain it so she used a cop-out. It was VERY annoying.

Then there are the gaps in logic.

--Why could Jamie travel in time and still have his scars and tattoos, yet Sophie's failing heart be miraculously healed and a nonissue?
--Why did Jamie lose his memory but Sophie didn't?
--Why did these so-called Time Defenders choose a lone woman to "fix" a Civil War inequity when women in this era were restricted to their homes and/or under a man's authority? She had no political clout. No power. No influence. For that matter, she was homeless and completely dependent upon others for the very clothes on her back.
--Why didn't these Defenders just use Jamie since he evidently "remembered" important stuff that saved lives in the Gettysburg fight?
--And then there was the ending: Jamie & Sophie were computer geeks and city folk so how would "giving them land" help them survive in 1860's Harrisburg? They wouldn't have the knowledge or skills necessary to do anything with the land!

okay-I had NO problem suspending my disbelief that Sophie and Jamie got "time warped." I don't mind something so obviously fiction. The part that bothered me was the poor medical research. Okay--Sophie is awaiting a heart transplant, at home, with a Left Ventricular Assist Device, and the year is 2007. (go to current times, December 4, 2011, and *I* am awaiting a heart transplant with an LVAD and was able to be at home until two months ago--just to establish my credibility for the layperson's medical knowledge of this condition.)

1. Sophie's LVAD beeps constantly? Um, can you imagine being totally connected to something that beeps CONSTANTLY. They don't do that.

2. Jamie is able to detach her from her monitor and carry her up the stairs. To "detach" from the monitor means you plug into a six lb battery pack. Taking a shower involves much more than simply hopping in. You have to use a waterproof shower kit that you hold around your neck.

3. Someone comes over to take her blood pressure at home. Seriously? Do you know anyone with a doppler at home to do a return to flow? Because with the way an LVAD works, you don't have a blood pressure. Not a traditional one anyway.

4. The FBI assumes that Sophie merely walked out on Jamie. Plus, he believes that she's alive somewhere without her LVAD? not possible. To "remove" the VAD would require extensive surgery. It doesn't just "come out."

5. Sophie is waiting at home, "guaranteed" the next heart. Which means she's a 1A status. first problem--1A patients do NOT stay at home. UNOS and the hospitals won't allow it. Also, has the writer not heard of blood types and antibodies? there's no way you can guarantee someone the next heart.

I absolutely love books that have some time travel in them. The characters in the book are in one place and time and something happens and wham they wake up somewhere else compltely.....

That is what happened with Sophie Ford, she is waiting for a heart transplant and is pretty sick, she is lying on her bed with the love of her life her husband Jamie and the next thing she knows she wakes up and she is in 1863 with a man named Richard, she is right in the middle of the fight between the north and south....

Her husband is transported but when he wakes up, it is in another place completely and he has no idea who he is or that he is married. He doesn't remember anything of the past or anything about the war.
Sophie was obsessed with that time period and knew everything about it, and she still remembers. What heppens when Jamie eventually makes it across her path but has no idea who she is.....

Is she able to convince him he is her husband and what does she do with the man who wants her for his own and will do anything to make sure she becomes his...

I stayed up last night reading this book and finished it today. I loved it. I'm happy to know there are more books coming out in the Civil War Bride Series...

From the back of the book: Sophie Ford thought she was sleeping in the arms of her beloved husband, Jamie. However, she has woken to find herself in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania 1863, without explanation as to how she got there, or where her husband is. She rejoices when a soldier, looking identical to Jamie, arrives. Can she break through Jamie's barriers and bring his memory back?

I searched for an email to contact you privately but couldn't find one. I hope it's okay if I post my question here. I was wondering if the couple is married before they have sex? If you want to email me to answer the question, that is fine.
