From the publisher

The second novel in the Great Plains trilogy, this is a passionate portrait of the artist as a young woman

Thea Kronberg, a young girl from a small town in Colorado has a great gift - her beautiful singing voice. Her talent takes her to the great opera houses of Europe, and through ambition and hard work, she forges a life as an artist. But if she can never go home again, nor can she leave behind her past. At last, in a desert canyon in Arizona, Thea has a revelation that will allow her to attain a new state of spirituality and become a truly great artist.

'Willa Cather makes a world which is burningly alive, sometimes lovely, often tragic' Helen Dunmore

'The Song of the Lark illuminates all her work' A. S. Byatt

'Lingers long in the memory' Joyce Carol Oates
