Another Way Home by Deborah Raney

About the Book
Sometimes God's ways are not at all what we expect… and exactly what we need.

Grant and Audrey are adding grandchildren to their family left and right, but middle daughter, Danae, and her husband, Dallas Brooks, have been trying for years with no baby in sight.

Though Danae is ready to consider adoption, Dallas will not even discuss it. Despairing of ever having a family of her own, Danae decides to pour her passion and energies into volunteer work with a newly opened women's shelter in town. Looking for a good cause to fill her lonely days, she never expects to give her heart to the hurting women she meets there. She's finally learning to live her life with gratitude, but then heart-wrenching events on Thanksgiving weekend threaten to pull the entire Whitman clan into turmoil – and leave them all forever changed.

The third book of Deborah Raney’s Chicory Inn series, Another Way Home revisits the now familiar and well-loved Whitman family, and I loved it. At the center of this story, Danae Brooks and her husband, Dallas, deal with their desires for a family in the face of infertility. As this couple determines how to best embrace the plan God has for their future, the entire Whitman family shares a beautiful and emotional time dealing with difficult feelings, like pain, guilt, and unmet desires, and allowing their love and faith to shine throughout their interactions. It’s a wonderful addition to Raney’s series, and I would certainly recommend it to fans of the series. Now, I can’t wait to see what’s next for the Whitman family in the next book, Close to Home.

About the Author
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.
