The second novel in Willa Cather's Great Plains Trilogy, that includes O Pioneers! and My Antonia.The Song of the Lark follows the exceptionally talented Thea Kronberg, a young woman from the small town of Moonstone, Colorado. Gifted with a beautiful voice, Thea?s determination and work ethic mean she defies her humble beginnings and finds success far from her home town. But her achievements are not without their drawbacks- as the distance between Thea and her roots grows ever wider, she must fight to find an inner strength if she is to recognise her deepest ambitions and reach her full potential. This is a lyrical coming-of-age story charting the struggles of an artist?s life. 'Lingers long in the memory' Joyce Carol Oates Willa Cather (nee Wilella Sibert Cather) was born in 1873 near Winchester, Virginia. She moved with her family to Catherton, Nebraska in 1883, and the landscape went on to have a formative effect on her, with her most famous novels being set on Nebraskan soil. Before becoming a full-time writer, Cather worked variously as a journalist, a magazine editor and a teacher. Her first novel, Alexander?s Bridge, was published in 1912, followed by titles including O Pioneers! (1913); The Song of the Lark (1915); My ntonia (1918); One of Ours (1922), for which she won the Pulitzer Prize; Death Comes for the Archbishop (1927) and Sapphira and the Slave Girl (1940). She died at her home in New York in 1947.
