When the board members of the Zion Hill Church elect Rev. Ronald Whitmeyer, a great orator, as their new pastor, they assume he has a wife and a 'normal' family. They are quite surprised to learn that he is a widower, bringing his four motherless children—two girls and two boys—and a seventy~six~year~old spinster aunt to occupy the parsonage.
Chaos begins as once. The manse falls to disarray under the dreadful neglect of the aunt Bertha. Half-blind, almost deaf, she is oblivious to the shocking antics of the preacher's kids, whose favorite playground is the rival church's sacred graveyard.
The Zion Hill congregation gets up in arms. The absent-minded minister needs a wife; the children need discipline. Something must be done. Help!
The author's kids will love it, and we hope you will, too...
