Wynonna Judd's first novel, 'Restless Heart,' is in stores today. It’s about Destiny, a small-town girl from Kentucky trying to make it in country music. Judd says, "I wanted to tell a story of a young woman with her life unfolding before her, facing incredible challenges and incredible opportunities, and making good decisions." While it’s fictional, it definitely mirrors her life to some degree.
This is not the country star’s first time writing a book. Her memoir, 'Coming Home To Myself,' was out in 2005, and it made the New York Times bestselling list.
Concerning 'Restless Heart's' plot, her official website says: "Success on the musical stage is all Destiny ever wanted, and when she finds it, she feels as if her dreams have come true. But with the exhilarating rush of success comes a price -- and a battle to recapture the traditions that were her foundation. Struggling to reconnect with the things that matter most, Destiny is putting an unexpected new spin on her own career -- one that will redirect her professional and personal life in ways she never imagined. Her debut novel is a celebration of family and friends, of love and loss, of success and surrender, and of one woman’s inspiring path of self- discovery."
Judd is in New York this week to make several media appearances, including CNN’s 'Joy Behar Show' later today and 'Access Hollywood' on NBC tonight. On Thursday, she will be on NBC's 'Moms in the City' and Sirius/XM Radio's 'The Morning Jolt With Larry Flick.'
Wynonna will also be signing copies of 'Restless Heart' today in New York at Borders in Manhattan and on Feb. 4 at Barnes and Noble in Brentwood, Tenn.
