From the cover: “Caleb doesn’t remember Mama, who died a day after he was born. But his older sister, Anna, says Papa and Mama sang “every-single-day.” Now Papa doesn’t sing at all. Papa places an ad in the newspaper for a wife and he receives an answer from a woman named Sarah. Sarah comes in the spring with her cat, whom she calls Seal because she is grey like the seals that swim in the sea near her home. Everyone hopes she will stay. But Sarah misses the sea, her brother, and the “three old aunts who all squawk together like crows at dawn.” When Sarah takes the wagon to town alone, Caleb and Anna worry. What happens next in this unforgettable and moving story tells much about happiness and hope, and what it is that makes a family.”
