about this book: Katie Bonner awakens on the morning of her 75th birthday feeling unusually light-spirited. She has a lot on her plate this day: a birthday luncheon with friends, dinner with family, but also—drat—her annual physical exam. (She's also hoping to squeeze in a round of golf or at least a dip in the country club pool.) Her long-time doctor is turning her care over to young Dr. Christian Bardo. Bardo is amazed at Katie; he guesses her to be about forty. What is the secret of her youthfulness? Dr. Bardo devotes his life to finding out. His books about her reveal their passionate love affair.

As the decades roll by, the entire world becomes entranced with Katie Bonner and would love to emulate her ability not to age. Emma, Katie's devoted granddaughter, is determined no sinister government agency or greedy pharmaceutical company will harvest her DNA for replication. Emma and Bardo—who has held on to the age of 102 for Katie's sake—are at her bedside on the eve of her 150th birthday. A tremendous throng has gathered outside to celebrate it, while overhead, copters carrying Special Forces hover to storm the citadel once the word is given by a spy within that Katie has breathed her last breath…

• "This book is a winner. The heroine is funny, sexy, full of pizazz even to the ripest old age..."

• "The book is light-hearted and funny but there's also a lot of deep meaning in it..."
