Another Way Home
by Deborah Raney
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.
My THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
Another Way Home continues the story of Grant and Audrey’s family, this book focusing on their daughter Danae. She and her husband have been trying to have a baby for a very long time, even with medical help, but so far nothing is happening. Danae decides to volunteer at a women’s shelter, pouring all of her time into the work and the people there. When she tries helping a hurting women, and her son, Danae and Dallas’ life changed forever.
Deborah Raney has written another really good read in this third book in the Chicory Inn Series. I have enjoyed following this family, and Danae and Dallas’ story is very heartwarming. This story teaches us that God is in control of our lives, and he has a perfect plan for us, even if it is nothing like what we imagine. I encourage you to go out and pick up a copy of this book, along with books one and two in the series. You will enjoy this wonderful and entertaining read.

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.
