In World War II, German scientists began many experiments. One never ended. | {{Book Review}} The Methuselah Project

The Methuselah Project 

Roger Greene is a war hero. Raised in an orphanage, the only birthright he knows is the feeling that he was born to fly. Flying against the Axis Powers in World War II is everything he always dreamed―until the day he's shot down and lands in the hands of the enemy.

When Allied bombs destroy both his prison and the mad genius experimenting on POWs, Roger survives. Within hours, his wounds miraculously heal, thanks to those experiments. The Methuselah Project is a success―but this ace is still not free. Seventy years later, Roger hasn't aged a day, but he has nearly gone insane. This isn't Captain America―just a lousy existence only made passable by a newfound faith. The Bible provides the only reliable anchor for Roger's sanity and his soul. When he finally escapes, there's no angelic promise or personal prophecy of deliverance, just confusion. It's 2015―and the world has become an unrecognizable place.
Katherine Mueller―crack shot, genius, and real Southern Belle―offers to help him find his way home. Can he convince her of the truth of his crazy story? Can he continue to trust her when he finds out she works for the very organization he's trying to flee?
Thrown right into pulse-pounding action from the first page, readers will find themselves transported back in time to a believable, full-colored past, and then catapulted into the present once more. The historical back-and-forth adds a constantly moving element of suspense to keep readers on the edge of their seats.

*My Review*
Rick Berry's "The Methuselah Project" is a wonderful read! This story is about a WW2 pilot that crashes in Germany,he isn't taken to a POW camp, but is placed in confinement as a part of a "project" to test to see if they have found the fountain of youth. He's kept in confinement many years after WW2 has ended and then he finally escapes. Can He really escape that secret organization that has kept him as a test subject all those years? You'll have to read the book for yourself to find out

This book is everything from Sci-fi to romance with suspense at every turn...while keeping some Christian values. I absolutely LOVED this book, and I am so thankful that I was given the chance to review it. I give this book a full 5 stars(which I rarely do!) Thank you Mr. Berry for writing such an amazing novel. This was my first time reading anything by Mr. Berry & I cannot wait to read more of his books.
