Great Book

Where does Sarah, Plain and Tall rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have to say after reading this book I felt like I would like to be Sarah, The book just make you feel all warm.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sarah, Plain and Tall?

When She got off the train... and then when she and Papa got married.....

Have you listened to any of Glenn Close’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The book's title is the best tag line, for movie or book

Any additional comments?
