Two Roads Home (Abingdon Press, June 2015)
What if it's too late for dreams to come true?
Minor---but-nagging setbacks continue to sour Grant and Audrey Whitman's initiation into the world of innkeeping, but larger challenges brew when an innocent flirtation leads to big trouble for the Whitmans' son-in-law, Jesse. Jesse Pennington's friendly, outgoing personality has always served him well, especially in a career that has earned him and his wife Corinne a very comfortable lifestyle. But Corinne and Jesse are both restless---and for similar reasons, if only they could share those with each other. Instead, too many business trips and trumped-up charges of harassment from a disgruntled coworker threaten their marriage and possibly put their three precious daughters at risk.
With their life in disarray, God is tugging at their hearts to pursue other dreams. Can Corinne and Jesse pick up the pieces of what was once a wonderful life before it all crumbles beneath them?

MY THOUGHTS-Deborah Raney is one of those authors who writes thought-provoking every day stories which leave you feeling much different when you are finished than when you started. Two Roads Home is the second book in the Chicory Inn series and I found myself pondering these characters lives and how they correspond to real life situations. Accusations and how quickly they can change a families whole world, dreams that are lost or never seen come to fruition, and what happens when you lose the joy that comes from your daily living.
If you have read the first book in the series, this one will make much more sense to you. A lot of characters to keep track of and it will help if you know in advance who they all are. This one centers around Corrine and Jesse but also goes to the mother/father POV as well. I felt heartbroken at times for Corrine and how she was so tired of the humdrum daily life. Both of them want more but aren't exactly sure what they want.
Again, this is a book that will take you on a roller coaster ride that may seem familiar. I think a lot of us know people who are in one of the situations of a character in the book. Lots of good advice given from the mother and father and I really like how everything turns out. Excellent story from Deborah Raney!!
