by Emmy award-winning journalist, Romona Robinson


Raised in a tiny, poverty-stricken town in rural Missouri, Romona Robinson, along with her ten siblings, knows what it means to struggle. Under the tutelage of her hardworking, protective, and God-fearing mother, Romona develops an affinity for the Bible and Walter Cronkite. She also believes her home on a dead-end dirt road would lead her to somewhere. And it does. While crossing paths with the likes of the Ku Klux Klan, Nelson Mandela, and Barack Obama, Romona experiences unimagined pain, love, and success. Her compelling story will inspire you to examine your own purpose and leave you filled with a desire to walk in faith, not fear.



Every person who walks away from fear is a blessing. They teach us valuable lessons.

Having fear is not a sin, its just a strong emotion that will tear us into pieces if we sit in it.


From the Author

At the heart of this book is the message that not every closed door we encounter is a bad thing. God knows that as long as we’re comfortable, we won’t move. We’ll stay stuck.

We don’t always like it when God tests our faith. It may not feel good, and we may not understand the reasons for it, but we have to have faith God is working on our behalf, and we will come through the storm. At times, God sent turmoil, betrayal, and loss into my life in order to force me into my purpose.

My wish in writing A Dirt Road to Somewhere is that you will be moved and motivated to walk in faith and not fear. Having fear is not a sin; it is simply a strong emotion that will tear us into pieces if we sit in it. Every person who walks away from fear is strong in their own way, and they can teach us valuable lessons.
