Synopsis

Esmie misses her mum, even though she was only a tiny baby when she died. She has a photo by her bed - and sometimes, when she needs advice or just fancies a chat, she asks her mum for help. Sometimes she even hears her reply.

But Esmie thinks her dad is lonely. And her big brother Matthew would definitely benefit from a female influence. So Esmie decides to take action - she's going to find her dad a girlfriend. Beautiful, clever, charming, kind to children and animals... How hard can it be to find the perfect partner for your dad?
