Restless Heart by Wynonna Judd
NAL • $25.95 • January 25, 2011
If you were excited about country star Sara Evans’ debut novel, The Sweet By and By, then you’ll be happy to hear that Wynonna Judd (of famous duo The Judds) is releasing her first novel in a couple of weeks. Called Restless Heart, the book tells the story of Destiny Hart, a young woman trying to make it big in Nashville.
If you want to know what it’s really like for a singer trying to climb the ranks in Music City, you’ll definitely want to check this one out as Judd is able to draw from her own life.
Here’s a scene from when Destiny gets her first break:
“Are you ready, Destiny Hart?” Rex was asking.
Not on your life.
“As ready as I’ll ever be,” she answered aloud.
“Great name by the way. You even sound like a star.”
A cold bead of sweat rolled down her back, but she swallowed her panic and smiled.
Of course it was going to be fine. Her inner strength had never failed her before, right?
Right. Well, except for that unfortunate horseback incident. Of course, she shouldn’t have jumped the creek, but it had been part of Cooper’s dare. . .
“Destiny, are you sure you’re ready?” Rex asked.
The slide show in her head shut off and Destiny nodded. “Yes, sir.”
A hush fell over the crowd and Destiny began to sing.
