When a drought tests the commitment of a mail-order bride from Maine to her new home on the prairie, her stepchildren hope they will be able to remain a family

Publishers Description

When Sarah came to the prairie, Anna and her brother Caleb worried that she would not stay and be their new mother. But Sarah fell in love with Caleb and Anna, and with their father, Jacob. Together they became a family. Jacob is a man of the land but for Sarah, the prairie isn't yet her home. So when a drought threatens to devastate their way of life, Jacob must save the farm.

Wonderful story  Feb 13, 2008
My children (ages 5 and 7) and I adored this book and ended up buying the series and watching the dvd which was also awesome (starring Glenn Close and Christopher Walken). The story is touching, emotional at times and very sweet. The characters are easy to love.

So Sarah took Anna and Caleb back to her hometown Maine, where they could be safe. Papa stayed behind ,he would not leave his land. Maine was beautiful, but Anna missed Home , and Papa. And as the weeks went by, she began to wonder what if the rain never came. Would she and Caleb and Sarah and papa ever be a family again.
Skylark Takes Off  Jun 18, 2007
This well written sequel to Sarah, Plain and Tall is a page-turner. Readers can't wait to find out what happens next to their beloved family on the plains. The dreaded drought causes much hardship; no water for the livestock, wells going dry, families leaving their farms, and the barn fire. Sarah and the children flee to Maine, her birthplace, to wait out the drought in safety. Luckily, the drought ends and Jacob goes to Maine to retrieve his family, including the newly pregnant Sarah! Patricia Maclachlan's writing is beautiful; full of imagery and feeling. It's easy to identify with these well-rounded characters.
