Pauline is a bright and energetic nine-year-old. And at times, incredibly stubborn. She and her mother, Anna, have been on their own since her father took off for America years ago. Pauline has never liked any of her mother's boyfriends, so when Anna becomes romantically involved with Pit, she keeps it a secret from her daughter. But Pauline finds out and Anna has to promise never to lie to her again.

Pit, it turns out, is a confirmed bachelor who loves his freedom and wants no part of family life. 'As much as it hurts him', he ends their affair. Anna is devastated and Pauline swears revenge. She is going to make this guy's life hell. And, at first, she succeeds. But when she finds out that her mother is still in love with Pit, Pauline makes another vow: Pit will learn to love her and live happily ever after with her mom. Reforming him is not easy, but by the time Pauline's done with him, Pit asks Anna to become his wife. But Pauline's troubles don't end there ...
