David Galloway is a bookstore owner in Harbor Vale,
Michigan. His assistant, Tiana Burton, hears on the news
that Zachary Wilson, a daredevil celebrity, has fallen
while trying to walk across the Grand Canyon, but did not
die in the fall. David doesn't even know who Zachary is,
but finds this news fascinating. He decides to
investigate, making a trip out to the canyon. Zachary
knows immediately who David is and calls him by the name
John Russell. David hasn't used that name since 1973.
David also learns from Zach that there are three others
just like them ... longevites. Their long lives are the
result of an experiment by a doctor who administered a
serum to each of them years ago, and the result has been
After David returns to Harbor Vale, Zach and the other
longevites, Simon, Colm and Moira, come for a visit.
During their few days with David, they learn that one of
the longevites in this small group has a deep, dark
secret. They need to take action to stop him as soon as
possible. Can they succeed?
NO LESS DAYS is a riveting tale that unfolds with
surprise after surprise. The theme is new, inventive, and
refreshing. Amanda G. Stevens brings us an inspirational
story of a man searching for God's purpose in letting him
live so long. Her characters are a mixed lot, strong yet
eccentric, and they deal with their anomaly in very different
ways. They each need friends, human interaction, and human
touch, but find it hard to accomplish that, since their
appearance never changes as they grow older. Each has a
story to tell of the trials they've been through in their
long lifetimes. I recommend this novel for a great summer
