Description
Retta Lee Jones is blessed with a beautiful voice and has big dreams of leaving her tiny Tennessee hometown. With a beaten down car, a pocketful of hard-earned waitressing money, and stars in her eyes, Retta sets out to make it big in Nashville. But the road to success isn't a smooth one in a town filled with dreamers, and Retta begins to have doubts: can she make her mark while staying true to herslf?

From the breakout author of Artichoke's Heart, this bighearted novel is a must-read for anyone who has ever chased a dream (or hummed along with Taylor Swift).
