A wise, old dog travels through the courts and battlefields of Europe and through the centuries in search of the master who granted him immortality.
TOMORROW tells the story of a 217 year-old “give or take a year or so” dog traveling in search of his lost master.
His adventures take him through the London Frost Fair, the strange court of King Charles I, the wars of the Spanish succession, Versailles and the world of the Sun-King and to nineteenth century Venice. As he travels through Europe he 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.
With the rich historical vision of Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell and the captivating canine perspective of A Dog’s Purpose, Tomorrow draws us into a unique, century-spanning tale of the unbreakable connection between dog and human.
