    This summer the Penderwick sisters have a wonderful surprise: a holiday on the grounds of a beautiful estate called Arundel. Soon they are busy discovering the summertime magic of Arundel's sprawling gardens, treasure-filled attic, tame rabbits, and the cook who makes the best gingerbread in Massachusetts. But the best discovery of all is Jeffrey Tifton, son of Arundel's owner, who quickly proves to be the perfect companion for their adventures.

    Nine years, five older siblings, a few beloved dogs, and an endless array of adventures - these are the things that have shaped Lydia's journey since fans first met her in The Penderwicks in Spring. Now, it's summertime, and 11-year-old Lydia is dancing at the bus stop, waiting for big sister, Batty, to get home from college. This is a very important dance and a very important wait, because the two youngest sisters are about to arrive home to find out that the Penderwicks will all be returning to Arundel this summer, the place where it all began.

    When summer comes around, it's off to the beach for Rosalind... and off to Maine with Aunt Claire for the rest of the Penderwick girls, as well as their old friend, Jeffrey. That leaves Skye as OAP (oldest available Penderwick) - a terrifying notion for all, but for Skye especially. Things look good as they settle into their cozy cottage, with a rocky shore, enthusiastic seagulls, a just-right corner store, and a charming next-door neighbor. But can Skye hold it together long enough to figure out Rosalind's directions about not letting Batty explode?

    Springtime is finally arriving on Gardam Street, and there are surprises in store for each member of the family. Some surprises are just wonderful, like neighbor Nick Geiger coming home from war. And some are ridiculous, like Batty's new dog-walking business. Batty is saving up her dog-walking money for an extra-special surprise for her family, which she plans to present on her upcoming birthday. But when some unwelcome surprises make themselves known, the best-laid plans fall apart.

    Es ist Zeit vergangen bei den Penderwicks. Rosalind studiert, aber Skye und Jane wohnen noch zu Hause und Batty ist mit fast elf l├Ąngst nicht mehr die J├╝ngste. Denn da sind ja noch Ben und die kleine Lydia, die die Geschwisterschar komplett machen.In diesem Fr├╝hling entdeckt Batty, dass sie singen kann, und wartet sehns├╝chtig auf Jeffreys Besuch, um ihr gro├čes Geheimnis mit ihm zu teilen. Und sie versucht ├╝ber den Verlust von Hound hinwegzukommen, dem geliebten Hund der Penderwicks. Rosalind und Skye wiederum schlagen sich mit Liebesdingen herum, w├Ąhrend Jane das Leben nach wie vor als Romanvorlage betrachtet. Und auch die beiden Kleinsten sind nicht unt├Ątig: Ben gr├Ąbt ohne Unterlass nach Sch├Ątzen oder Steinen, und immerhin von letzteren gibt es in Maine jede Menge. Und Lydia tr├Ągt ihre l├Âwenzahngeschm├╝ckte Krone mit ebenso viel Stolz wie Batty fr├╝her ihre Schmetterlingsfl├╝gel.Einem neuen Abenteuer mit den Penderwicks steht also nichts im Wege!
