Lately, it’s been rough going for Catherine. Her dad found a new partner and moved out, and her mom only has the time and attention to spare for her job. Now that summer break has arrived, busy little Catherine feels truly alone. But then she meets Martin from her dad’s new family and befriends a fun old lady named Alice who moves into the neighbouring house. Together, they plant peas, care for the plants, and do all kinds of other entertaining things.
