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

'All that deep-rooted vitality flowered in her voice, her face, in her very finger-tips. She felt like a tree bursting into bloom'

Thea Kronberg, a young girl from the small desert town of Moonstone, Colorado, has a great gift - her beautiful singing voice. This talent will take her all the way to the great opera houses of the world. But despite her fame, it takes an unexpected revelation to show her what it really means to be an artist.

The blazing portrayal of a young woman in the single-minded pursuit of beauty, this semi-autobiographical novel is the second book of Willa Cather's Great Plains trilogy.

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

Willa Cather was born in Virginia in 1873 and moved to Nebraska, with its wide open plains and immigrant farming communities, at the age of nine.

This landscape would deeply affect her later writing. She attended university and became a journalist and teacher in Pittsburgh, and then a magazine editor in New York.

Her first major novel, O Pioneers!, appeared in 1913, and was followed by two more in her prairie trilogy: The Song of the Lark and My Antonia. She lived with the editor Edith Lewis for thirty-nine years until her death in 1947.
