Audiobook read by Glenn Close. In this sequel to Sarah, Plain and Tall, a drought strikes the prairie. The family hangs on as long as they can, but after a destructive and terrifying fire, the father stays on the land and sends Sarah and the kids back to Maine.

Though this has a lovely happy ending, and is as well-written and moving as the first book, the characters are so unhappy for so much of the book that it was nowhere near as enjoyable for me as the first book. This was exacerbated by listening to it on audio rather than reading it, so the pace was much slower. For much of it, I felt as frustrated and gloomy as the characters.

That being said, it has important plot developments for the next book, which hopefully will be more cheerful.
