'Lingers long in the memory' Joyce Carol Oates

Thea Kronberg, gifted with a beautiful voice, defies her humble beginnings in Colorado and finds success far from her small hometown. But her achievements come with painful drawbacks.

This is a lyrical coming-of-age story charting the struggles of an artist’s life.
