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.
