Twenty-five-year-old Josh McMillian has become the legal guardian of his five active nephews, ages six to fifteen — and he’s in way over his head. Josh struggles to find time for himself as he cares for the boys, cooks, cleans, and acts as referee, all while holding down a full-time job. He also hopes to get the boys involved in church–something his nephews have never done before.
Schoolteacher Melissa Klassen takes a special interest in young Bradley McMillian, especially after she saves him from a stray dog’s attack. In return, Bradley has a special interest in her, too — not just for himself, but for sad, lonely Uncle Josh. At first Bradley succeeds in getting his teacher and his uncle together, but it doesn’t take long for them to discover Bradley’s little scheme. Then, slowly, all the McMillian boys team up to find reasons for Melissa and Uncle Josh to see each other. Will “McMillian’s matchmakers” succeed?
