The Elixir by Thomas Root III

Title: The Elixir
Author: Thomas Root III
Publisher: Twilight Times Books
ISBN: ebook--19333353023
Genre: Literary/Magic realism

A fun read that opens the door to all sorts of possibilities when dealing with romance and magic. Raising the question of what might happen if one were given the opportunity to outlive one's allotted time and cheat death for centuries, this tale makes the choices possible for one young couple.

Tom is madly in love with his wife, Carole, and she with him, but there is a blot on their happiness. Carole has a painful disease for which there seems to be no cure. That is, until they meet Lucinda Hobson, a rather strange lady with an even stranger cat. It turns out, she is their landlady.

This meeting proves fateful for the three people and changes the course of their lives. Hope and faith are tested in dealing with an offer Lucinda sets forth for Tom and Carole to consider. Dare they accept?

An experience into the paranormal adds to the fun of this tale. Recommended as something different for any reader. Talented author Thomas Root III takes readers into a world where anything seems possible, yet is grounded in reality. Enjoy. I did.
