Sarah, Plain and Tall

This 1986 Newbery Medal Winner by Patricia MacLachlan is the first in a series of five books about the Witting family.  When Sarah Elisabeth Wheaton responds to Papa's ad for a wife, she agrees to come from Maine to visit for one month before deciding whether to marry him. Sarah misses her home in Maine, but the children wonder will she leave, or will she stay and bring some laughter to their prairie home? 

This children's literature classic is perfect for fans of Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House on the Prairie books, historical fiction, and timeless stories using rich and beautiful language. Sarah, Plain and Tall gently explores themes of abandonment, loss and love.
