Quotes

Jacob Witting: I love you, Sarah. There are some things that can't be written... in a letter. I'm not good with words.
Sarah Witting: You're fine with words. I never thought you'd come. I dreamed about it at night when the sea sounded like wind through the grasses. I thought about it at night when Caleb had bad dreams. I saw your face everywhere, Jacob, everywhere. I'd look at the sea and see your face there, and in the sky. When I looked at Anna and Caleb you were there. Once in the street I saw somebody that looked like ...

Skylark; continuing family love during hardship
5 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Midwest is struck with a drought. Many family desert their farms, but Sarah and Jacob hang on as long as possible.

Finally, Sarah and the two children go to the east coast to visit "the Jewels" (Sarah's aunts) and Sarah's brother, while Jacob stays at the farm and tries to save what he can. The aunts are delightful, nonconformists who accept the children and welcome Sarah.

When rain finally comes to the Midwest, Jacob goes to Maine to bring home Sarah and the children. Sarah says a final goodbye to her beloved Maine.

Skylark is as wonderful a movie as Sarah Plain and Tall, and Winter's End. This movie is suitable for any age. Hallmark has once again excelled.
