it was amazing
Read in January, 2000

One of my favorite books of all time. This is a story of a young girl growing up in middle American in the early 20th century. She starts taking piano lessons from a fabulous teacher who sadly has a alcohol problem and lives in her little town. She goes on to study and ends up becoming a famous opera singer.

Maybe it's the singer in me, but I fell in love with this simple story. This is a book I've probably read about 10 times over the years, and will continue to pick it up at least once a year or every other year. Cather has an amazing ability to write true, simple stories. I would compare her to Maeve Binchy in today's literary world.
