'If a lone female is left, especially if divorced, without a man at the helm, all the friends and family run away'

When their parents split up nine-year-old Lizzie Vogel, her sister and brother move with their mother to a slightly hostile village in the English countryside. Their mother immediately takes to drinking and compulsive playwriting - none of which impresses villagers already deeply suspicious of an attractive divorcée. Desperate to fit in, Lizzie and her sister hatch a plan: secretly invite any suitable (and even unsuitable) men to meet (and hopefully marry) their mother . . .
