If you had the chance to live forever, would you take it? In a new twist on the fountain of youth, we follow the diary journals over the centuries of two people who drink from the waters and take alternating turns between childhood and old age.This truly unique piece of literature that seamlessly combines a slightly futuristic fantasy and magic with a realistic story of empathy and the struggle of witnessing human suffering and the death process.Readers who enjoy puzzles, mysteries, twists, historical fiction, and not always endearing characters, Insensible Loss will be your favorite find this year.What is Insensible Loss?Insensible Loss - medical: the amount of water lost on a daily basis from the lungs, skin, and respiratory tract; the exact amount cannot be measured.Insensible Loss - wilderness survival: unawareness that water loss is actually occurring; loss during high-intensity action simply breathed away, evaporated, and never realized.“Sometimes eraser marks on a page mean more than what’s written.” —Autor Widmor

From the Author:

"What if you found the fountain of youth, and it didn't keep you young, but made you young? That was the first question that came to mind. Next, if you were young, say a baby, how would you grow old without some one else?I guess the one question starts to pose other questions. How much trust would you have in that other person to care for you? It would have to be total trust and confidence to take turns rising one another after drinking from the fountain of youth.If you did it for love, but the one you love is not a good person... well there were lots of possibilities in a story like that. How do you choose the best story from those rules, that is the question. That is what I tried to provide the reader. Something fun, exciting, romantic, and dramatic. I tried to write something my mom would enjoy, like Flash Gordon with Buster Crab, or Indian Jones with Harrison Ford. Fun, exciting, and a little bit dark." 

Review:

"The plot is clever and well developed, while at the ame time reserving an air of mystery and an unpredictable ending. The prose is well written and provides a vivid picture of a story that requests your full attention and imagination.

Saying anything more would spoil a great story. I highly recommend this author. Read this book!""Insensible Loss is one of my favorite books from 2016 so far. Short, bittersweet, and to the point Paul Michael Peters tells a story that feels like bits and pieces I've read before, but pulled together in a new and compelling story. 
The characters purposefully aren't terribly endearing, at least right up until the twist. A bit of swashbuckling, immortality, love, and deceitfulness is what drives the story. The twist at the end takes this from a 4 star book to a 5 star book for me, it made me totally rethink all my previous reactions in the best way possible."
