Another Way Home, the third book in Deb Raneys Chicory Inn Novels, brings us deeper into the lives of Grant and Audreys daughter, Danae, and her husband, Dallas Brooks. Danae has suffered for years over not being able to get pregnantespecially since her sisters seem to pop kids out on demand. Danae is willing to consider adoption, but Dallas wont hear of adoption and worse, wont talk about why not.
In an attempt to find meaning in her life, Danae begins working at a safe house for abused women and children. Dallas, although uneasy about the situation, accedes to her desire to do so. Danae gives her heart to these women and children all the while wondering why she cannot become a mother.
Finally, just before Thanksgiving, Danae finds peace in her heart and can welcome the thought of the new baby her sister is going to bear. Thanksgiving weekend, however, brings chaos and a situation that could change all of their lives forever.
Im liking the Chicory Inn series. Deb Raney has the ability to bring tough topics that occur in many families to the surface and to deal with them gently and with hope. I could identify with DanaeI was unable to have children of my body myself. I know the anguish of fertility drugs and schedules and the total depression that follows yet another failure to conceive. Deb portrays this struggle with realism and grace. The characters of Dallas and Danae are realistic and we can accompany them on their ups and downs all the while rooting for a successful outcome to their problems.
If you like true to life and realistic stories, with romance and trials and twists and turns strewn throughout, youll like Another Way Home: A Chicory Inn Novel Book 3. And youll smile at the lovingkindness our Lord often displays to us when we have faith. Four stars.
Deborah Raneys 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 Kansasthe setting of many of Deborahs novelsfor 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.

GrandaddyAAge: Over 65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Unexpected OptionsDecember 7, 2015GrandaddyAAge: Over 65Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Gods ways are better than our ways. We often think we have all the answers and expect God to do things our way. Life just doesnt work like that. Danae Brooks, middle daughter of Grant and Audrey Whitman, and her husband Dallas have some lessons to learn. The lessons to be learned by the characters in fiction are the same lessons we must learn in real life. Deborah Raney masterfully shares those lessons in her writing. This is the third Chicory Inn Novel and is every bit as interesting as the first two. At times you can almost feel the pain of the characters as they struggle with some very serious issues. For those who have faced infertility as Danae and Dallas have, the story will hit very close to home. For the rest of us, it shares some insights that we may have never considered. Although the book genre is Contemporary Women, I find that I can learn from it as well. Frankly, I think it should be listed as Family Drama. I recommend the book for anyone who has a family.
Booklover105 Stars Out Of 5Many tough issues brought up in this great bookNovember 23, 2015Booklover10Quality: 5Value: 0Meets Expectations: 5Deborah Raney has written a series that I have thoroughly enjoyed from book 1. I love how the Chicory Inn has remained a center piece through each book, although it changes roles throughout each book. For example, in this book it is mostly featured as the place where the family gets together for Tuesday meals. It is where announcements are made and tears are shed and joys are shared.
Danae and Dallas are the central characters in this book. Their situation is one that so many can relate to so easily. Danae desperately wants to have a child, but she isn't able to get pregnant month after month. It's all her heart wants and it's so hard for her to focus on much else. Add to that having a sister that can have baby after baby whether she wanted to have one or not. Those announcements just never get easier because Danae can't help but wonder when it'll be her turn to announce baby news, or if it'll even ever happen.
I loved how Danae chose to pour her heart into a new passion--volunteering at a women's shelter. My heart broke over the children, though. Just knowing that many of the kids in these situations have experienced what was written or even so much more is heartbreaking.
I felt like so many issues were incorporated into this book. Difficulty getting pregnant, marriage issues, abuse, adoption and that's just to name a few. Even with all of the heavier topics brought up, the book was an interesting one and it didn't feel so weighty that I didn't enjoy it. In fact, it was extremely hard for me to put this book down. I'm looking forward to the next book coming out soon!
I received this book free from Litfuse Publicity Group and Abingdon Press in exchange for my honest to opinion of this book.
