Sarah, Plain and Tall is a book that was written in 1985. I received this book as a Christmas gift when I was young, and thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
Several years later, when I discovered that Sarah, Plain and Tall (1991)was made into a movie, I was thrilled! The movie closely follows the book, and Glenn Close as Sarah is totally believeable.
I recently watched Sarah again. It had been quite a while since I'd seen it. I love the costumes and the setting. It feels as though one is stepping back in time, not watching a movie--it's very realistic!
While Sarah does not promote a submissive spirit, it tells a tale of one woman's fight for survival on the prairie. I'm looking forward to watching the sequels to the movie as well.
