Read full description of the books:
A great read! If only all the time travelling women we read about had managed to raise the status of women generally, more quickly. In this case a girl from a barren dystopian world, where everyone prefers to spend time in the Cloud rather than the impoverished reality, is part of a cult group. The women each study differing time periods and steal computer time to boost one or more of their number to the past. Our heroine Jordan doesn't expect the plot to change time to work, and is astonished to find herself back in gold-rush San Francisco.
I particularly love the many references to books Jordan has read, from 1984 to Two Years Before The Mast. However, Jordan has no idea what to do, how to dress, to earn money, and works hard to fit in - her colouring means she is taken for a Mexican, not well regarded. I love the evocative world conjured up for the reader, everything from cholera to brothels and gold embedded in mercury. In fact we learn a great deal about gold mining.
The characters are distinct and strong, including children, the adventures breathless and outcomes large. We find a romance and a running crime story. Jordan's musing on the contrasts with her home time are nicely slipped in among events and we learn some of the local history. Can the girl change anything for the better, or worse? Can she get home again? Grab this book and don't let it go.
The tale would suit adults or mature young adults, and contains a small amount of strong language and adult references. As this is second in a linked series I'll be looking out for the first book, but it stands well alone.
I received an e-ARC through Fresh Fiction. This is an unbiased review.
