Synopsis

Willie Meadow lives with his mother, father, and brother in Blue Hill, Virginia. It's peaceful there-a perfect place for growing up. For the Meadow family, each season of the year holds something special, like puppies born to their beloved dog one summer, a fishing trip on a crisp October day, or the thrill of a rare winter blizzard.
