DNA of the Reversed River
DNA of the Reversed River is a science-fiction / romantic journey of three scientists (one of which is the author herself), working to discover the secrets of life. The novel explores many core questions including: why didn’t God create us as immortals? Will we be ready one day to trade love for immortality?
Anna Idelevich’s heroes blend these issues with a number of the scientific problems they attempt to resolve.
A delightful journey for a sophisticated reader.
