Sarah, Plain and Tall

By Patricia MacLachlan (16)

Show/Hide Info

Patricia MacLachlan’s Newbery Medal award winning novel, Sarah, Plain and Tall, is much beloved for its spirited and kind titular heroine, and its gentle storyline. Caleb and Anna Witting miss their mother greatly, and their loneliness is mirrored in their father, who no longer sings after his wife’s passing. Jacob Witting, “Papa”, places an ad in the newspaper for a mail-order bride, and Sarah of Maine replies, promising to travel to the Witting’s prairie farm to stay for a month. Her arrival prompts a renewed joyful atmosphere in the Witting household, and the children find themselves drawn to Sarah’s cheerful attitude and buoyant spirit. However, a fear slowly begins to creep into the children’s hearts – will Sarah’s homesickness take her back to Maine? MacLachlan’s novel is a moving tale, with an affable humor and clear writing style that will especially appeal to readers in a Grades 3-6 range.
