Sarah, Plain and Tall by Patricia MacLachlan
Sarah, Plain and Tall is the charming story of mail-order bride. It's so hard for us, in this day and age, to even imagine doing something like this! A widower with two children decides to write an ad for a bride/mother for his children. Sarah answers the ad, agreeing to stay with the family for a month to see if they are well-suited to each other. Traveling across country by train, she moves in with this unknown family. A delightfully touching story - and Newbery award winner as well! This makes an excellent addition to any study of 19th century America.
There is a Progeny Press study guide available for this book.
