I read this years ago, I know it was a best seller. A poor family in the 30's?, perhaps in Wales? The younger sister is wild and the other sister goes to new York city and trains to be an opera singer? The younger sister dresses as a man towards the end of the book is all that I can remember. I know it was the most interesting fiction book I have read in a long time, I could not put it down.

Was this Fall on your knees? It's set in Nova Scotia or Newfoundland, I think.
