Book Summary:

Willa Cather's third novel, The Song of the Lark, depicts the growth of an artist, singer Thea Kronborg, a character inspired by the Swedish-born immigrant and renowned Wagnerian soprano Olive Fremstad. Thea's early life, however, has much in common with Cather's own. Set from 1885 to 1909, the novel traces Thea's long journey from her fictional hometown of Moonstone, Colorado, to her source of inspiration in the Southwest, and to New York and the Metropolitan Opera House. As she makes her way in the world from an unlikely background, Thea distills all her experiences and relationships into the power and passion of her singing, despite the cost. The Song of the Lark presents Cather's vision of a true artist.

Book Summary:

"Mother Ocean Daughter Sea Strength Unchanging Strengthen Me" The Shari'a are an ancient race. They are un-warlike and they are ruled by their shamanic witches. The Allemanii are more recently arrived in their locale and are both awed and made fearful by the magical powers of the witches. After generations of peaceful coexistence, a cataclysm occurred out of nowhere and the Allemanii turned on their neighbors and hosts, slaughtered most of them and scattered the survivors. Suddenly, to be a Shari'a is proscribed and to be caught practicing their magic is to be hunted to the death. In MOTHER OCEAN, DAUGHTER SEA, Brierly was a secret healer who was betrayed by someone she had trusted. In SEA LARK'S SONG, exposed as a Shari'a healer, on the run and now aware of a secret truth about what had happened to her people--and in love with one who may put her life at risk even more--Brierly must hide in the mountains and sort her way through a tangle of secrets as she attempts to bring her lost people, and their magical, healing power, back into the world. Her true love faces an almost overwhelming challenge: he must struggle against centuries of fear, hatred, secrecy and conspiracy to turn his own people away from the commitment to destruction. If he does not, not only will Brierly and her people's survival be at risk but his own people may end up facing a similar fate, as destructive as the one they had wrought upon the Shari'a.

Book Summary:

Willa Cather’s The Song of the Lark, the latest in Rodopi’s Dialogue Series, is a collection of thirteen new essays exploring Cather’s 1915 classic novel about the coming-of-age of Thea Kronborg, a gifted young opera singer. As in previous editions in the Dialogue series, this volume on Cather’s novel offers analyses by both new and emerging scholars on complex and controversial issues. Specific areas of focus include: the role of the West and the railroad, race and race relations, the performing arts, as well as Cather’s complex construction of “culture” throughout the novel. Thea’s role as a possible feminist icon receives a fresh, insightful look, while other writers explore the nature of gift and gift-giving as well as the novel’s relation to other literary movements and genres. Scholars and the general public will welcome the ways these new critical insights offer a fresh look at this modern classic.

Book Summary:

They want to move on--but one terrible truth could shatter it all. As a widowed mother of three, new love seems impossible for Freya--until she meets Duncan, and suddenly she feels alive again. But there are secrets afflicting Freya's family, some more sinister than others, that could destroy their relationship before it has a chance to flourish. While Freya's older children are less than welcoming, six-year-old Sophie helps Duncan find his place in the family--but even Sophie harbours fears that threaten to overshadow any chance of a new start. The past is hard to leave behind when pictures of Freya's idolised late husband hang in every room, and the more Duncan tries to find the source of Sophie's anxiety, the more he is convinced that Reuben was not the perfect husband and father Freya remembers. Tormented by concern and his own insecurity, Duncan begins an obsessive investigation into the dead man's past. But when his good intentions lead him in too deep, he risks destroying everything he has built with Freya--and the whole family's second chance at happiness.

Book Summary:

Lizzie has an unfortunate knack for attracting bad luck, but this time she's hit the jackpot. Losing her heart to her boss at the radio station where she works leads directly to losing her job, and with no money in the bank she's forced to swallow her pride and return home to her parents. As if that wasn't bad enough, her mother finds her work at the local care home for the elderly, and it's there that Lizzie meets Mrs Dallimore. In her nineties, Mrs Dallimore also finds herself in a situation which she's reluctantly coming to terms with. Old age has finally caught up with her, and with her life drawing to a close she gives in to the temptation to relive the past by sharing it with Lizzie. She tells Lizzie of the day when, as a young girl, and shortly before the outbreak of World War II, she left her home in America to cross the Atlantic to England where she hoped to meet her English grandparents for the first time. At best she hoped for a family reconciliation, but before long her visit turned into so much more. As Lizzie listens to Mrs Dallimore's story, she begins to realize that she's not the only person to attract bad luck, or make mistakes, and maybe things aren't so bad for her after all . . .

Book Summary:

The American Southwest was arguably as formative a landscape for Willa Cather?s aesthetic vision as was her beloved Nebraska. Both landscapes elicited in her a sense of raw incompleteness. They seemed not so much finished places as things unassembled, more like countries ?still waiting to be made into [a] landscape.? Cather?s fascination with the Southwest led to its presence as a significant setting in three of her most ambitious novels: The Song of the Lark, The Professor?s House, and Death Comes for the Archbishop. This volume focuses a sharp eye on how the landscape of the American Southwest served Cather creatively and the ways it shaped her research and productivity. No single scholarly methodology prevails in the essays gathered here, giving the volume rare depth and complexity.
