Abstract:

Dr. Sarah Halifax decoded the first-ever radio transmission received from aliens. Thirty-eight years later, a second message is received and Sarah, now 87, may hold the key to deciphering this one, too-- if she lives long enough. A wealthy industrialist offers to pay for Sarah to have a rollback--a hugely expensive experimental rejuvenation procedure. She accepts on condition that Don, her husband of sixty years, gets a rollback, too. The process works for Don, making him physically twenty-five again. But in a tragic twist, the rollback fails for Sarah, leaving her in her eighties.

"La doctora Sarah Halifax logró descifrar el primer mensaje recibido de los alienígenas de Sigma Draconis. Treinta y ocho años despues, cuando ella ya es casi nonagenaria, llega la respuesta. Y también debe ser descifrada-- si Sarah vive el tiempo suficiente. Un millonario interesado en el programa SETI ofrece pagar el costoso tratamiento de rejuvenecimiento (vuelta atrás) para Sarah, y ésta exige que su esposo Don, con quien lleva sesenta anos casada, tambien reciba el tratamiento. El proceso funciona a la perfección en el caso de Don, que vuelve a la fortaleza fisica de sus veinticinco años, pero no con Sarah, condenada a una muerte demasiado cercana."--Back cover.
