Sarah, Plain and Tall by Patricia MacLachlan
This is a children’s fiction story that is about a woman from the east coming to live with a widower and his two children. Sarah loves the kids, and treats them like the mother they don’t have. The children adore her as well, and can’t imagine life without her. There is a sweet innocent love story between Sarah and Jacob also. There are just little clues that tell you they are falling in love.
I love this story, and have since I read it back in elementary school. It is a simple, classic story that will be around for years to come. If you have not read this book, you are missing out. It’s a quick fun read that everyone needs to read at some point in his or her life.
I recommend this book.
