Description

‘Bask in the brilliance . . . Golden Age Amsterdam, Versailles, the court of Charles I – it’s armchair travel with a unique companion’ MAIL ON SUNDAY

The spellbinding and beautifully written story of courage and devotion, for fans of historical and magical fiction like The Night Circus, The Binding and The Girl in the Tower
_________

Valentyne has lived many lives – physician, philosopher, soldier – but his defining work has been his ability to stop the clock. He has lived for centuries, as has his dog, Tomorrow.

Inseparable, they’ve voyaged across Europe, using their time wisely. They’ve attended royalty in a dozen courts, healed soldiers on a hundred battlefields, and met with the greatest minds of the Renaissance. Until one day, in watery Venice, Valentyne vanishes without trace.

Broken-hearted, Tomorrow begins a search that will endure for centuries. But as the continent collapses into war, he must risk everything to find his master – or lose him forever.
