The Mum Hunt
Esmie’s mum died when she was born, so her dad has brought up Esmie and her older brother Matthew on his own.
When Esmie is 11, she decides it’s about time her dad got himself a new girlfriend and is convinced, after watching The Sound of Music, that her French au pair Juliette is the perfect choice.
Juliette has other ideas, however, and together they place a lonely hearts ad in the newspaper, with unexpected results. A funny, moving and unusual slant on single-parent families.
