    Anthony Peardew is the keeper of lost things. Forty years ago he carelessly lost a keepsake from his beloved fiancée, Therese. That very same day, she died unexpectedly. Brokenhearted, Anthony sought consolation in rescuing lost objects - the things others have dropped, misplaced, or accidently left behind - and writing stories about them. Now, in the twilight of his life, Anthony worries that he has not fully discharged his duty to reconcile all the lost things with their owners.

    Jeder Gegenstand, den Anthony Peardew findet, hat eine Geschichte. Er sammelt und archiviert sie alle in seinem schönen viktorianischen Haus und plant, sie eines Tages an ihre ursprünglichen Besitzer zurückzugeben. Denn vor Jahren hat er selbst etwas verloren, das er bis heute sucht: ein Medaillon, das einst seiner großen Liebe gehörte und auf das er aufzupassen versprach. Das Alter zwingt Anthony, diese besondere Aufgabe an seine Assistentin Laura weiterzugeben.
