Description

Last week, I was stocking groceries in Freedom, Alabama. This week, I live in Nashville, Tennessee, about to take the stage at the famous Bluebird Cafe.

Sounds fantastic, doesn't it? Only one problem, I 've got stage fright.

But after years of being ruled by fear and hiding from my dream, I confronted my limited reality and left home. Forget the hometown hunk who wants to make me queen of his double-wide. Forget Momma's doubt-inspiring tirade. I can make it in Music City...can't I?

In a leap of faith, I gathered my old guitar, my notebook full of songs, and packed up my '69 Chevy pickup. Look out NashVegas!

With the help of some new friends, especially handsome Lee Rivers, my dream is about to find the light of day. But as I face my first night at the Bluebird Cafe, I realize...I might just do what comes naturally. Look for the nearest exit, and run!

Reading Group Guide

  1. Robin is a dedicated employee at Willaby's even though she knows she should be doing something else. Have there been times in your life where you struggled between being comfortable and being ambitious enough to go after your dreams? (p. 16)
     
  2. Reverend Eli mentions that he had to pray hard to love his captors in South America. Do you grapple with loving your enemies? (p. 35)
     
  3. When Robin nearly runs over Mallory, do you think there was a reason the author wrote that it raining outside? Tears of joy for Robin or perhaps tears of sadness for Mallory? Could the rain symbolize a Baptism of sorts? (p. 63)
     
  4. There is a saying that you can take the leopard out of the jungle, but you can't take the jungle out of the leopard. Think about Robin, who made many outward changes (haircut, manicure, pedicure), but remained the same person on the inside. When have you tried to mask the inside by recreating your outward appearance? (p. 112)

  6. Robin knows she is still terrified to sing in front of people, but decides "to let God's love be my strength." When have you taken a stand and made a true leap of faith? (p. 170)
     
  7. There is a passage where Robin has an epiphany about why she moved to Nashville. Have you had times in your life when you realized there was a greater purpose to the things you were doing? (p. 171)
     
  8. After meeting Robin and seeing how she faced her fears, Marty decides to face her own fear and go to college. When have your actions had an impact on the life of someone else? How did that make you feel? (p. 250)
     
  9. Have you ever let fear ( False Evidence Appearing Real) stand in the way of something you really wanted to do, or felt called to do? Did you overcome your fear? How?
