Description
At 91 years old, Ptolemy Grey is one of the world's forgotten. Marooned in a cluttered Los Angeles apartment overflowing with mementos from his past, Ptolemy sinks deeper into lonely dementia and into a past that's best left buried. But everything changes when he meets Robyn at his grandnephew's funeral.

Seventeen and without a family of her own, Robyn and Ptolemy form an unexpected bond that reinvigorates his world. Robyn will not tolerate the way he has allowed himself to live, and with her help, Ptolemy moves from isolation back into the brightness of friendship and desire. But as he recaptures the clarity of his fading mind, he also unlocks the secrets he has carried for decades.
