|Plot Summary of The Song of the Lark|
|"The Song of the Lark describes the development of an artist from childhood to success. In Moonstone, Colorado lives Thea Kronborg, a girl of such promise that the light of her future touches everyone around her. To nurture this quality, Thea's mother enrolls her in piano lessons, and eventually a teacher discovers that her true talent lies in her voice. Although Mrs. Kronborg is the first to support her determined child, throughout Thea's life it is the men who admire her that pave the road to her success. Mingled with the action of the plot are descriptions of Colorado and New Mexico, and commentary on late 19th century frontier society.
