In the small Alberta town of Tomorrow, young Arthur yearns for a larger life. His father prefers the love of horses and good books, while his mother is guided by practicality and her faith. Bev, his rough-edged brother, chooses action over thinking. Among them is the solitary Arthur-intelligent, curious, garrulous, romantic and at odds with his surroundings and his religion. His one ally is his adopted cousin, the fearless Isobel. Their mutual admiration for the land, for literature, for all things French and for each other sustains Arthur. When Bev goes to fight in Vietnam and returns emotionally broken, relationships within the family change and tensions between the two brothers rise. With a secret between them, Arthur leaves for Paris, where he pursues his passions for writing and women and at last claims the life he has always wanted. But dreams and reality don't always match, and it takes going away for Arthur to appreciate the push and pull of both home and love.

Could not sustain enough enthusiasm to finish the book. Key character was interesting at the beginning , but as he grew older, he grew more and more tiresome and affected.
Not enough meat on the story bones. Disappointing.

Oi. Tried to like this book. Really did. But the sameness of all Canadian books got to me and I ended up finishing this book wanted my time back. Full review here: http://671books.net/fiction/leaving-tomorrow/
