Publisher's Description

Link Whitman has settled into the role of bachelor without ever intending to. Now he’s stuck in a dead-end job and, as the next Whitman wedding fast approaches, he is the last one standing. The pressure from his sisters’ efforts to play matchmaker is getting hard to bear as Link pulls extra shifts at work, and helps his parents at the Chicory Inn.

All her life, Shayla Michaels has felt as if she straddled two worlds. Her mother's white family labeled her African American father with names Shayla didn't repeat in polite––well, in any company. Her father’s family disapproved as well, though they eventually embraced Shayla as their own. After the death of her mother, and her brother Jerry’s incarceration, life has left Shayla's father bitter, her niece, Portia, an orphan, and Shayla responsible for them all. She knows God loves them all, but why couldn't people accept each other for what was on the inside? For their hearts?

Everything changes one icy morning when a child runs into the street and Link nearly hits her with his pickup. Soon he is falling in love with the little girl’s aunt, Shayla, the beautiful woman who runs Coffee’s On, the bakery in Langhorne. Can Shayla and Link overcome society’s view of their differences and find true love? Is there hope of changing the sometimes-ugly world around them into something better for them all?

    The last book in the Chicory Inn series and I sure am going to miss the Whitman clan! This has been an exceptional series where the author highlights realistic struggles that families face in this complicated modern world. She deals with tough topics with sensitivity and humour and always leaves me thinking. And while Home at Last can be read as a standalone novel, you'll appreciate it more if you've read at least a few of the other books to get a feel for the family dynamics.

    Link's the last man standing among his happily married siblings and he's not averse to finding 'the one' and settling down, In fact he might just have found her but...it's complicated. Shayla can't deny she's attracted to Link but she's overwhelmed with the responsibilities she has at home. Helping to run her father's bakery, raising her incarcerated brother's child, tiptoeing around her embittered father. Starting a relationship with Link would just add to her burdens...wouldn't it?

    Link's determined to prove her wrong and he pursues her in an endearing bull-in-a-china-shop kind of way. His upper class white collar upbringing clashes insensitively with Shayla's bi-racial blue collar world at times. It's a fascinating study in perspectives on racism and the difficulties that come from bridging two diverse backgrounds. There are scenes that made my blood boil and my skin crawl. But they are balanced by the sweet tenderness of a burgeoning love story that's definitely complicated but worth the effort.

    Triumphant conclusion to the Chicory Inn series. I'm sad to let the Whitmans go. Perhaps we can encourage the author to fast forward through time and bring us the Whitman grandkids edition. :-)

    Every book in the Chicory Inn series has been excellent and Home at Last is no different! Home at Last will keep your attention as the last of the Whitman children falls in love with a biracial woman who is also a little older than him and responsible for her niece whose father is in prison. Deborah Raney takes you through the reactions of both the Whitmans and Shayla's father. You will enjoy Home at Last even if you have not read the earlier books in the series. I recommend Home at Last to others. I won my copy of Home at Last from the God is Love blog. This is my honest opinion.

    I am really going to miss my visits to the Chicory Inn. I have enjoyed getting to know the Whitman family and see the different challenges each one faces or has faced in their life. They look like the perfect family from the outside, but this family has known loss and what it means to be broken. They've fought for their family relationships and have remained close through the storms.

    Deborah Raney did a wonderful job addressing the racial tensions throughout this book. I wasn't expecting this book to address that topic, but I'm so glad it did. It was interesting to see Shayla's perspective as she has to bridge the gap between two worlds. On top of that, she's dearly missing her mom as she's now left taking care of her entire family.

    Link doesn't think twice about his new relationship, except in terms that the girl he's interested in is raising her niece. He's a bit surprised when he finds that he has to address some racial comments and actions that have been thrown at his new girlfriend. Not only that, but Shayla's dad isn't too fond that Link is the man Shayla has become interested in.

    There's a lot going against this new relationship. It's interesting to watch the different barriers that must be crossed and the different conversations that must be had that are uncomfortable for some.

    Might I hope for some sort of Chicory Inn Reunion or a spinnoff?!

    It is not often that a contemporary Christian author takes on such a hot topic as racial prejudice and that made me intrigued to read this book. I thought the author wrote about the subject in real and beautiful terms. Watching Link and Shayla navigate the waters of public opinion made for a really good story. It was one that left me with hope for the future. Full review at my website. Note: I received this book complimentary as a participant of the Litfuse Blog Tour. I was not required to give a positive review. All of the opinions I have expressed here are my own.

    Delightful and an intriguing read. This was my first opportunity to meet Deborah Raney and the cast of the Chicory Inn series.

    I look forward to reading the series.

    This story was not what I expected but I was drawn in and moved by the poignant story that captivated this reader.

    By telling a story about race and inter racial marriage in a way that was honoring to God was a blessing.

    The characters were charming and believable. As each struggle with their own pasts and mistakes in dealing with the subject of acceptance.

    I did enjoy the members of the Whitman family and look forward to reading the previous books in the series. Home At Last is book 5 in the series and is a stand alone novel.

    I received a complimentary copy from Litfuse
