"Twelve-year-old Kit Haverard is the only daughter of an absent-minded, scholarly Quaker father. Along with three older brothers who are currently away at school, dreamy, untidy Kit has been raised by their young, energetic cousin Laura. Ever since the death of Professor Haverard's wife, Laura has given herself to maintaining an ordered life for her uncle, conscientiously caring for his children, but also jealously "protecting" him from the day to day affairs of the household. Though Kit is a frustration to her orderly cousin, a stranger to her father and a puzzle to herself, she finds comfort in the realm of make-believe in books and in time shared with her close friends Pony and Helen. Her world begins to expand when, after an illness, she goes to stay with members of her mother's family whom she has never met. To her own amazement, Kit discovers within herself a deep love for music and? a person and as a singer?she begins to raise her voice." from Good reads

This is about a young girl who feels she is a misfit and doesn't fit in with her family. She is on a journey of learning who she is and what are her talents, finding out who she is and her voice. This book also talks about being a youngQuaker. I highly recommend this book it is one of my childhood favorites. This book is actually The Lark on the Morn the first book in the series and The Lark on the Wing is the second book about Kit after she leaves schook.
