Description

I will come by train. I will wear a yellow bonnet. I am plain and tall.

A heartwarming story about two children, Anna and Caleb, whose lives are changed forever when their widowed papa advertises for a mail-order bride. Sarah Elisabeth Wheaton from Maine answers the ad and agrees to come for a month. Sarah brings gifts from the sea, a cat named Seal, and singing and laughter to the quiet house. But will she like it enough to stay? Anna and Caleb wait and wonder -- and hope. Performed by Glenn Close

"Did Mama sing every day?" Caleb asks his sister Anna. "Every-single-day," she answers. "Papa too."
