Among her friends, Darby McKennitt has always been the rock, the encourager who listens and reassures the others. Her
own fears- over her parents' rocky marriage- she shares only on paper. When Darby's band Second Rate has a big break and begins
to tour, the members have no idea that their lead guitarist and songwriter is struggling to know if there is such a thing
as true, unconditional love. Fans of the On Tour series will enjoy The Songwriter's unique style- Darby's journal
entries- and glimpses at the songs that may offer the band a chance at the charts.
