Book Summary

A winter's night, Venice, 1815. A 217-year-old dog is searching for his lost master.

So begins the journey of Tomorrow, a dog who must travel through the courts and battlefields of Europe — and through the centuries — in search of the man who granted him immortality. His adventures take him to the London Frost Fair, the strange court of King Charles I, the wars of the Spanish succession, Versailles, the golden age of Amsterdam and to nineteenth-century Venice.

His is a story of loyalty and determination, as Tomorrow befriends both animals and humans, falls in love (only once), marvels at the human ability to make music, despairs at their capacity for war and gains insight into both the strength and frailties of the human spirit. But Tomorrow's journey is also a race against time. Danger stalks his path, and in the shadows lurks an old enemy. Tomorrow must find his master before their pursuer can reach him and his master disappears forever.

A spellbinding story of hope in the face of despair, Tomorrow draws us into a century-spanning tale of humanity and the unbreakable bond between two souls. After all, what is lost can surely be found.

Media Reviews

"From the creator of the internationally acclaimed children's book series "The History Keepers"; how can you resist?" - Library Journal

"The memoirlike story is beautifully rich in perseverance, love, the sweetness of life, and memorable, evocative scents." - Kirkus

"Ornate, vivid, deeply colored, and so precise I could smell and taste the world ... the story of a dog crossing continents and centuries in search of the man he loves is moving and tender. I was captivated by its charm from the beginning." - Rachel Joyce, author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

"Tomorrow is a richly imagined tale of canine devotion, the meaning of faith, and the price of immortality." - Susan Wilson, author of One Good Dog

"With a beautiful voice worthy of its epic scope, Tomorrow grabs your attention, makes you think, and forces you to wonder just how powerful love can be." - Robert Repino, author of Morte

"Tomorrow is a profoundly magical journey into the soul of a dog and the transformative power of love. If you care about animals or humans, Damian Dibben's novel must be on your to-read list." - Neil Abramson, author of Unsaid and Just Life

This book.. is hands down brilliant!
A book to keep and re-read. A book I will be sending this to friends. Forget that I love dogs and the perspective is heart-breakingly pure since it is the dog's; this is a poignant, thought provoking book about living and love and family and (oh good grief I could go on--redemption, friendship, invention and war....) The author has a true gift for scenes which transport the reader to another time, another life. Plot wise this book grabs you from page one and never lets up. Mr. Dibben created not just any book, but a work of fine literature. A book to keep and re-read. It asks the question... could it be that the ties that bind a man and his dog with love continue on through eternity? I do not want to give too much away I will let other reviewers do that, but I will say, that if u want to know what a great book from a dog's perspective is like... Just open it up and you too will be transported away. I highly recommend this piece of art!!! BRAVO!!
