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?


Deborah Raney’s books have won numerous awards, including the RITA, National Readers Choice Award, HOLT Medallion, and the Carol Award, and have twice been Christy Award finalists. She and her husband, Ken, recently traded small-town life in Kansas—the setting of many of Deborah’s novels—for life in the (relatively) big city of Wichita, where they enjoy gardening, antiquing, movies, and traveling to visit four children and a growing brood of grandchildren who all live much too far away.

Deborah Raney's novels brim with heart and this novel is one of her best yet. I enjoyed meeting the extended Whitman family in the first book, Home to Chicory Lane, (click the title for my review). Two Roads Home focuses on another of Grant and Audrey Whitman's daughters, Corinne, and her husband, Jesse, as they deal with some challenging and very realistic issues that impact their marriage. Raney expertly portrays the seemingly little things that, when left unaddressed by open and honest communication, can chip away at a marriage. Simultaneously heart-warming and instructive, this novel will touch your soul and inspire you. I wish I could spend a night or two at the Chicory Inn, although I would reluctantly avoid Tuesday night, when the whole clan gathers for their weekly family meal! Don't miss this delightful novel with a dash of suspense thrown in. I can't wait to see which Whitman offspring will be featured in the next book!
