Summary

Sarah, Plain and Tall, Skylark, and Caleb's Story, all unabridged and all performed beautifully by Academy Award-winning actress Glenn Close, make up this exquisite audio collection.

And so begins the journey for Sarah, Papa, Anna, and Caleb in Patricia MacLachlan's masterpiece, Sarah, Plain and Tall.

Missing Skylark, but still excellent

The 4 hours and 22 minutes includes Sarah, Plain and Tall and Caleb's Story, and an interview with the author. But there was no Skylark.

What was there was excellent, both the story and the narration. My six year old and nine year old listened raptly, as did I. I liked that it had a complicated family (mail order bride becomes a step mother), and complicated emotions, painted against a prairie farm back drop. It feels true.

great story

This is in the vain of Little House on the Prairie but more grown up. There were real emotions shared with the characters
