review Hettys Song, the Death of the Skylark ¶ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Plain in gray homespun and prayer cap gifted teenaged Hetty has one desire in life To sing But the Brethren tradition in the mountain village of Singer’s Glen Virginia forbids a girl to perform in public Tragedy forces Hetty to live with her austere grandmother until catastrophe pushes her to run away and seek shelter with an eclectic group of Christian ladies living in a former brothe. Hetty s Song is an interesting well written account of a young Brethern girl s difficult coming of age almost literally a baptism by fire Hetty s attempt to overcome and escape her radical religious upbringing takes her across the late 1800 s landscape from VA to Omaha Blessed with a beautiful singing voice Hetty also struggles with a mental affliction for which the ever present skylark serves as a metaphor This same skylark tormented her ancestral grandmother from 17th century SwitzerlandBarbara Andrews has obviously researched her topic extensively making her characters come alive in realistic settings reflecting America s rural and growing urban life inthe late 1800 s I enjoyed not only the plot twists but the background descriptions ofthe landscapes clothing and lifestyles of both rich and poorThe themes of overcoming adversity struggling with mental illness and enhancing and using a God given talent provide the reader with not only enjoyment but thoughtfulreflection
