Home to Chicory Lane: A Chicory Inn Novel - Book 1
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?
Family can be the place of our greatest frustrations, but it is also the source of our greatest joy and acceptance.
Why the author wrote this book:
Coming from a large family, marrying into a large family, and then raising four children, I've loved exploring how those relationships intertwine and cause equal amounts of frustration and pure joy.
