Once a celebrated author of short stories, now in his twilight years, Anthony has sought consolation from the long-ago loss of his fiancée by lovingly rescuing lost objects—the things others have dropped, misplaced, or accidently left behind. Realizing that he's running out of time, he leaves his beautiful house and and all the collected treasures to his unsuspecting assistant, Laura, the one person he trusts to fulful his legacy and reunite his lost objects with their rightful owners. Recovering from a bad divorce, Laura is in some ways one of Anthony’s lost things. But when she moves into his lovely old Victorian mansion, her life suddenly begins to change. Anthony's final wishes set in motion a most serendipitous series of encounters as Laura sets out to realize Anthony's last wish: reuniting cherished lost objects with their owners
