Look Inside

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.


Is eternal youth a blessing or 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. Naissa spends the next few centuries on Earth—and beyond—desperate to learn more about her condition. While working with the esteemed Oberlin Institute in Vienna, she makes an important discovery that could change everything.

But trusting the wrong people is a mistake, and Naissa's immortal life enters a new chapter she never anticipated.
