Storylines

She was born to Neil Curtis and Maggie Horton. She was conceived through artificial insemination and was believed to be the daughter of Evan Whyland. It was not until she was a teen that they found out her father was Neil Curtis. To Sarah, Mickey Horton will always be her daddy. Mickey raised and loved Sarah as if she were his own blood. Evan gave up his legal rights when she was an infant, but Mickey never adopted her. Sarah left town with her sister, Melissa Horton. They settled in Nashville. Melissa has made a few return visits to town but, Sarah has not been seen since they left.

Sarah, now a doctor, returns to Salem engaged to Rex Brady, and becomes entangled in the short-lived custody battle of Holly Jonas. Sarah breaks up with Rex when she discovers that he cheated on her with Mimi Lockhart, who comes to town with his baby, Emily Lockhart. Rex later admits to sleeping with Sarah's paternal half-sister Noelle Curtis, and a furious Sarah seeks revenge by looking to Rex's brother Eric Brady for comfort, but feels rejected when he turns her down. She leaves and sleeps with Xander Kiriakis. She once again becomes engaged to Rex, and later marries him, only for the relationship to end months later as Sarah secretly has feelings for Eric. Upon the return of Nicole Walker, Eric and Sarah end their relationship. Soon after, Sarah discovers she is pregnant with Eric's child; a year later, it was discovered that after giving birth to a stillborn daughter, Xander orchestrated a swap of Sarah's baby for Kristen DiMera's daughter with Brady Black. She gets engaged to Xander, but when the truth comes out about the baby swap, she breaks up with him. They later reconcile, but on the eve of her wedding, Sarah sees Kristen —who has escaped from prison — and in an act of desperation, Kristen ties her up and steals her identity to frame her as a cheater by lying to Rex that "Sarah" is still in love with him.
