Widow Abby McClure (Doris Day) manages lumberjacks by day and looks after her three sons by night. One day, she meets nice-guy Jake Iverson (Brian Keith), a widower with a daughter. They fall in love, get married and try to blend their two families into one functioning unit. They’re not prepared for the hostile reactions from their children, especially Jake’s daughter Stacy, who wants to be the woman of the house, and Abby’s oldest son Flip, who hates Jake.
Howard Morris directs this family comedy co-starring Barbara Hershey, George Carlin, Alice Ghostley, Jamie Farr and Pat Carroll.
