Publisher's Description

A small-town girl becomes a world-famous artist in this powerful coming-of-age novel from one of the twentieth-century’s most celebrated authors
 
From childhood piano lessons to center stage at the Metropolitan Opera House, The Song of the Lark is the poignant story of an artist discovering herself.
 
Fiercely independent and singularly talented, Thea Kronborg realizes at an early age that she is destined to leave her family and the frontier town of Moonstone, Colorado, behind. In Chicago, she studies with the city’s best voice teacher and begins the long and arduous process of mastering her craft. But ambition alone will not transform Thea into one of the world’s greatest opera singers—she must find the courage to set aside her humble origins and romantic illusions and fully dedicate herself to her art. In the ruins of an Arizona cliff dwelling haunted by ancient voices and purified by the desert air, Thea is inspired to embrace her calling once and for all.
 
Lyrical, authentic, and brilliantly constructed, The Song of the Lark is a masterwork of American literature. It is the second volume in Willa Cather’s acclaimed Prairie Trilogy, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
 
This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
 

Author Bio

Willa Cather (1873–1947) was one of the most popular and critically acclaimed American authors of the early twentieth century. Born in Virginia, she moved with her family to the frontier town of Red Cloud, Nebraska, at the age of nine, an experience that profoundly affected her literary career. Her Prairie Trilogy—O Pioneers!The Song of the Lark, and My Ántonia—is considered one of the finest achievements in American letters, and in 1922 she won the Pulitzer Prize for One of Ours, her novel on World War I.
