SYNOPSIS:
Caleb and Anna's mother died the day after Caleb was born. All that's left are memories and old stories about their mom. One day their father announces that he put an ad up looking for a wife. "Like Maggie?" Asks Caleb. Their neighbor did the same thing long ago and Maggie answered the ad, she became his wife and a wonderful mother. Sarah replies to the ad, "I will be wearing a yellow bonnet, i am plain and tall". When the children meet Sarah, they begin to remember what it's like to be a complete family again but Sarah wants to stay for a month to decide if she wants to marry or go back to her home in Maine, by the ocean. What will Sarah choose?

REVIEW:
This is a short but sweet novel that reminds people how amazing it is to have a family. It is a timeless novel that can be read again and again and still be enjoyed. Not only is the plot interesting but the reader get's to catch a glimpse of what life was like on the prairie, back in the 1800's before technology existed and when woods covered the land. This is a sweet novel that the whole family can read.

AGE RATING AND RECOMMENDED TO:
I recommend this book to anyone because it's a good read. The tale is simple so I suggest it to anyone at any age.
