Sarah was the daughter of politician and journalist Benjamin Flower, editor of The Cambridge Intelligencer, and Eliza Flower. She married William Bridges Adams in 1834.
Sarah had hoped to be an actress, but God had other plans for her. Her stage career was cut short by poor health (though she did get to play Lady Macbeth in 1837), so she turned to writing.
She wrote many magazine articles; a poem about early Christian martyrs called Vivia Perpetua (1841); The Flock at the Fountain (1845), and a children’s catechism.
She contributed 13 entries to Hymns and Anthems, published in 1841 by minister William Johnson Fox. She attended Fox’s South Place Unitarian Church, Finsbury, London.
