Jonathon and Gavin Nightly are in love with Hannah Lasker, a gifted artist on the verge of a meltdown. Their lives spiral toward heartbreak with the release of a controversial vaccine that grants eternal life. This "miracle cure" is only the beginning of a true-to-life technological takeover that pits friendships against progress, science against faith, and love against time.

From a subtle drama set in 1970s Chicago to the perils of the distant future, The Day I Wore Purple escalates rapidly into a mind-blowing tapestry of unrequited love and colliding galaxies.

About the Author

Jake Vander Ark conceived of a trillion-year love story in his hometown of Grand Haven, Michigan. He turned the idea into a screenplay at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, then converted it into his first novel while working as a reader in Los Angeles. After honing his craft on other books, he decided to revisit the sci-fi epic. Over the next three years, he returned to Michigan, began his own furniture company, and finally completed his decade-long odyssey called The Day I Wore Purple.
