Overview

What if you could stay young forever? This tantalizing possibility becomes reality for the inhabitants of Paul Michaelson's Romosa:
The Island of Eternal Youth. Readers will enter a dazzling world full of old Hollywood movie stars, pilots, young scientists, and a mysterious elixir that the islanders can't stop drinking...
Hamnet Andrews and Al Blake are friends and graduate students at the Harvard School of Molecular Biology. Together, they attend a conference in Maui that focuses on their primary field of study namely, the process of aging. While exploring a private beach during a rare moment of rest, the colleagues stumble across a letter in a bottle. It turns out to be a cry for help from a woman named Lona Lemonte, who begs the recipient to rescue her from a mysterious island called Romosa. The letter contains instructions, as well as two pieces of Lona's jewelry to fund the trip. Curious, the two men follow the letter's directions and soon arrive at the unknown island. There they meet Lona, the author of the letter and a silent movie star who somehow doesn't appear to have aged. Her friend, Penelope, turns out to be the famous female pilot whose plane mysteriously disappeared over the Pacific Ocean decades earlier, yet she doesn't appear to have aged either. Hamnet and Al soon meet Dr. Richardson, a nineteenthcentury physician who created an elixir from a Romosa plant that prevents all signs of aging. Now, as they wrestle with the undeniable temptation of eternal youth, the men must decide whether they'll risk their lives and stay on the threatening Romosa or sail back to the mainland and inevitable mortality.
