From the Publisher
Annotation Is eternal life a blessing or a curse? It's 1880, and the members of the Tuck family (Ma, Pa, and their two sons) haven't aged since the day 80 years ago when they unknowingly drank from a magical spring. When friends and family noticed that the Tucks never aged, they were labeled as bewitched and cast out of society. Since that time, the Tucks have been living an itinerant life, finding work and home where they can, moving on before anyone notices that they don't age. Their peaceful existence is disturbed when 10-year-old Winnie Foster happens to meet the youngest Tuck, the handsome Jesse, and subsequently uncovers the family's secret. Later, the situation becomes more complicated, and even dangerous, when the nefarious Man in the Yellow Suit also uncovers the Tucks' secret--and makes plan to reveal it to the world. First published in 1975, this extremely popular novel explores the dark side of the common fantasy of remaining forever young.
Editors Note Doomed to—or blessed with—eternal life after drinking from a magic spring, the Tuck family wanders about trying to live as inconspicuously and comfortably as they can. When ten-year-old Winnie Foster stumbles on their secret, the Tucks take her home and explain why living forever at one age is less a blessing that it might seem. Complications arise when Winnie is followed by a stranger who wants to market the spring water for a fortune.
