A shy young carer’s life is transformed when she is sent away to the country – and becomes the unlikely village heroine.
Caz is fed up. Life has been tough since Dad left. Why does she always have to do everything? What is wrong with Mum? Why is her brother always so angry?
When Mum is rushed into hospital she is packed off to stay in a cluttered cottage in the country with her grandfather, who she barely knows.
Despite her initial misgivings, Caz gets used to his old-fashioned ways and settles into the slower pace of village life, even having an exciting adventure along the way. The two form a close relationship; her trust and confidence builds as she learns about the natural world around her, while he learns a thing or two about the pressures of growing up in the modern world.
In this emotional and ultimately uplifting story of family relationships, we see how small changes can lead to bigger ones and how older and younger generations can learn from each other. In just a week, life can begin to look a whole lot better.
