Beautifully written but very sappy spin on "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" (the Fitzgerald short story not the movie) with added love triangle and lots of San Francisco history.

"Be what they think you are," my mother whispered to me that evening, a tear at the corner of each eye. "Be what they think you are. Be what they think you are."

I have tried, Mother. It has brought me heartache, but it has also brought me here.
