'Timothy Ardell, given sentence of death by his doctors, takes stock of his life and realizes that in twenty years of devotion to a family whom he is no more than a money-spinner, he has never found time for play nor done any disinterested service to his fellows. Determined to make up in his six months of life for everything he has so far missed, he lives in a London boarding-house and, through achieving a variety of not always successful results from his interest in the lives of other boarders, learns much of humanity and kindness. There, too, he meets Lynne Derring, whose spirit has refused to be defeated by unhappiness and disillusionment, and in her he finds the love and romance he did not know he had missed, and through her the final solution.'
