A Remedy in Time

Jennifer Macaire

Historical, Fiction
To save the future, she must turn to the past . . . San Francisco, Year 3377. A deadly virus has taken the world by storm. Scientists are desperately working to develop a vaccine. And Robin Johnson – genius, high-functioning, and perhaps a little bit single-minded – is delighted. Because, to cure the disease, she’s given the chance to travel back in time. But when Robin arrives at the last Ice Age hoping to stop the virus at its source, she finds more there than she bargained for. And just as her own chilly exterior is beginning to thaw, she realises it’s not only sabre-toothed tigers that are in danger of extinction . . .

This book contains:

  • attempted murder
  • memories of murder
  • references to psychiatric facilities and various treatments

Robin is one of the most interesting main character’s I’ve read about. With her history of mental treatments, her delicate relationship with her boss’s son, uncanny ability to survive against the odds and ability to make friends with unlikely allies, she really is one of a kind.

Jake, the son of her boss is briefly introduced at the start of the story, then not heard from again until much later. His role in the story feels more like that of a motivator and inspiration.

Yah, the caveman she comes across just won’t leave her alone and keeps popping up at just the right moment to help her survive. It feels at times like he’s a love interest, but the story moves much too quickly with too much drama for anything more than a couple of hints to show themselves.

Robin is chosen to be sent back to the last Ice Age to find traces of Typhus-77 which is currently running rampant on Earth. When she arrives, everything changes and she’s left alone, needing to survive the extremely dangerous time with no help.

Before help can get to her, she runs into Yah. With his help she recovers and is ready to be saved by the rescue team that arrives shortly after. Only problem is, they aren’t there to rescue her.

For almost the whole book we follow Robin surviving against the odds, in an attempt to bring back the cure Earth desperately needs.

I feel like Jennifer started this one off very differently to her other books. There was a lot more time spent setting up Robin’s background and the background of what was happening compared to previous books. As we got into the book, that makes more sense since she isn’t trying to impact the past to ensure the future, she’s trying to save the future with the help of the past.

As I got absorbed into the story, I found myself forgetting that there’s usually a romantic element and just enjoyed the drama and excitement for what it was. Its own adventure and amazing story!

With every hurdle, every obstacle, every little piece of information we learn, the story felt more and more complex. I did guess what had happened before Robin figured it out, but that didn’t help me when the rescue team arrived when I had to start all over again.

The whole time I was on the edge of my seat needing to know what was going to happen, how would they save the world and what would happen to Yah?

Of course, I was left hanging right up until the very end! And it was brilliant! I loved it!
