    Description

    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.

    "I will come by train. I will wear a yellow bonnet. I am plain and tall," Sarah writes Papa. And so begins the journey for Sarah, Papa, Anna, and Caleb in Patricia MacLachlan's masterpiece, Sarah, Plain and Tall.

    In Skylark, a drought turns the land dry and brown and Sarah takes Anna and Caleb back to the city as Papa stays behind. Will the family ever be reunited?

    Caleb's Story continues the saga of Sarah and her family on the prairie. All the beloved characters return for another important episode in their lives, this time narrated by Caleb, offering a new perspective.

    Don't miss the next story about life on the Witting family farm. Make More Perfect than the Moon your next listen.
    ©1985, 1994, 2001 Patricia MacLachlan (P)2003 HarperCollins Publishers, Inc.

    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.

    What matters in the simple life

    What made the experience of listening to Sarah, Plain and Tall Audio Collection the most enjoyable?

    The feeling of hearing the children as real children, natural, vulnerable and brave enough to love, drew me right in. The slow warm growing of trust, and again, courage to love, and to find new ways of being together, a new family, and each part of it also an integral, developing being. Even the farm!And of course, Glenn Close reading to me. I could trust her voice to carry me through the rich textures with nary a false note. She reads, it feels, from the inside out.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sarah is my favourite - a role model too. How she sees clearly, thinks for herself, makes courageous decisions for her life and relationships, expresses grief without pretending, and gives each person and creature time to get to know and trust her. She lives, it seemed to me, from a clear inner core of self-knowledge and inner security to risk comfort and love.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The crayons - taking the sea with me...

    A great delight!!

    This book was like a companion to me as I lay sick in bed. I watched the movie as a child and loved the simplicity and the beautiful relationships between the characters.

    I enjoyed the book even more and the characters became like my family. I even found myself tearing up in parts, especially in Caleb's Song.

    The love that develops between Sarah and the father is a thing of beauty! And I can't say enough about the fabulous job Glenn Close did as the narrator. I know I will listen to this story many more times and I hope to introduce these stories to my nephews and niece this summer!

    Just lovely

    This collection of three stories is delightful; I didn't know anything about 'Skylark' and 'Caleb's Story' so these were bonus treats for me. Lovely performance by Glenn Close.
