A woman born in the 1850s finds herself thrust unwillingly into an immortal life. Forced to hide her condition as the centuries pass by, she searches for an answer to her condition, and for others who may be like her.
Eternal youth is not a blessing but a curse.
Naissa Nolan is a happy child in 1850s Philadelphia—until tragedy strikes while she and her family are on holiday. Alone and heartbroken, she is thrust into an immortal life she never bargained for or imagined. She spends the next few centuries on Earth—and beyond—hiding her condition and battling time itself. Moving from place to place before her continued youth is questioned, Naissa tries to cope with the staggering changes she lives through. She desperately wants to find out why she never ages. Things spiral out of control as she searches for a lasting family. Are there others like her? Can she change her condition? Should she?
