You Went Away is Timothy Findley's latest storytelling masterpiece, a richly evocative and haunting novella of war-time love, infidelity and the ideals of love. In his trademark, effortless recreation of past lives and loves, Findley instantly transports us to 1942 Canada and the imploding marriage of Mi and Graeme Forbes. As the war edges closer, Mi fears her hard-drinking husband's philandering ways but finds herself magnetized by a dashing young R.C.A.F. pilot who handles a Spitfire and motorcycle with equal aplomb. In a time defined by laughter and loss, Mi and Graeme struggle with their own betrayal and loss and the delicate, almost invisible threads of hope that entwine them all.

A story as only Timothy Findley could tell. You Went Away is another bestselling treat from one of our most gifted writers.
