The daughter of a Swedish minister growing up in Colorado, Thea Kronborg’s musical talent sets her apart from her contemporaries. Driven by her determination to satisfy her artistic impulse, she moves to Chicago, where she falls in love with a wealthy married man.

The novel follows Thea’s growth from provincial midwesterner to acclaimed international opera singer. Her ability to resolve the tensions between her personal and professional lives and to communicate through her art makes her an unusual and thoroughly modern heroine.

    " All I have to say is thank goodness it is over, it didn't keep my attention, I didn't really like the main character, and the descriptives bogged down the novel. "

    " Despite being about the life of a woman who becomes a well-respected opera diva, this felt like a look into the life of Willa Cather, and what motivated her to pursue a career in writing. That story would make a good novel as well. Rather slow at times, but I liked how she tried to uncover the feelings and motivations of minor characters as well. In a sense, she comes to understand the debt she owes to so many individuals. "

    " I did not like this book very much. I probably would have given up on it if it wasn't the Book Club choice. The first 100 pages were painful, but the rest of the book was a little better. Overall, I don't have much to say about the content - it wasn't interesting to me. "
