In this sequel to Sarah, Plain and Tall, we pick up the story after the marriage of Sarah and Jacob.  The family is doing well and are happy living on the prairie.  Things are about to change, though.  There has been very little rain.  The crops are drying up and some families are leaving.  Papa refuses to even think about that possibility.  He says that they were born there and that their names are written in the land.  But the drought is getting worse every day.  When they lose the barn to a fire, Papa knows that he needs to make a drastic decision.
