Click here to see the rest of this review Best part of story, including ending: I liked the story a lot. I liked how Willa Cather wrote about a young girl with a singular ambition, and the drive and energy to achieve it.
Also, Cather deals with the issue of being not only different, but special and what that really mean in a down to earth kind of way. Best scene in story: My favorite scene is when a young man realizes that he is not right for Thea, and that she is special.
He is amazed, grateful to have met her, and moved by the realization. It is kind of the admiration you feel, maybe love for a celebrity. Opinion about the main character: I liked Thea Kronborg for the most part.
She is hard working, driven, strong, and takes advantage of every opportunity given to her. In Moonstone, Colorado lives Thea Kronborg, a girl of such promise that the light of her future touches everyone around her.
Mingled with the action of the plot are descriptions of Colorado and New Mexico, and commentary on late 19th century frontier society.Misplaced Childhood is a music studio album recording by MARILLION (Neo-Prog/Progressive Rock) released in on cd, lp / vinyl and/or cassette.
