Two Roads Home

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?"


Having read The Face of the Earth, Beneath a Southern Sky, and other books by this author, I was excited to read Two Roads Home.  

Sadly, this book didn't live up to my expectations. The build up was pretty good, and the storyline had some interesting developments, but the book fell apart at the end.
I had trouble with a few of the characters as well. Their actions and reactions didn't make sense and weren't believable.  The ending was abrupt and confusing, after all of the build-up and anticipation.  The way the protagonist is handled didn't ring true or make sense.  It just all fell apart at the end and left me disappointed. 
While I have enjoyed other books by this author in the past, this one was not what I expected.
