Home to Chicory Lane Book Review

I have a really good book to share with you today called Home to Chicory Lane written by Deborah Raney that I think you will love reading.

Landyn longs for home, but her mother may have other plans. 
Audrey Whitman’s dreams are coming true. Now that their five kids are grown, she and her husband, Grant, are turning their beloved family home into a cozy bed and breakfast just a mile outside of Langhorne, Missouri. 
Opening weekend makes Audrey anxious, with family and friends coming from all over to help celebrate the occasion. But when Audrey’s daughter, Landyn, arrives, the U-Haul she’s pulling makes it clear she’s not just here for a few days. Audrey immediately has questions. What happened in New York that sent Landyn running home? Where was Landyn’s husband, Chase? And what else was her daughter not telling her?  
One thing was for sure, the Chicory Inn was off to a rocky start. Can Audrey still realize her dream and at the same time provide the comfort of home her daughter so desperately needs?
Well, this story is not as rare as it might sound. I have heard and seen first hand many a mother and father talk about their kids wanting to return home when the first crisis in a marriage goes astray and they don't know how to handle the pressure.

Of course, these two really do love each other and if they would give each other the time to calm down, they will see that they are not unique in their problems and that they are going to have to grow up and realize it's not always a party. Life happens and sometimes you get thrown some punches, but you have to get right back up and keep going.

Hopefully, Landyn will give her husband the benefit he deserves and realize that she acted a little bit too hasty running home to her parents. After all, her parents are ready to begin their new life also, after raising 5 children, they are ready to be alone and realize a dream of their own.

Happy Reading!
