ABOUT THE BOOK


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

Another Way Home is the third book in the Chicory Inn series. Even though it refers back to the events of the first two books, you can still read it as it is. I actually received a copy of Book 2 after this one, so I will go back and read Two Roads Home.

I was pleasantly surprised by how invested I was with Another Way Home. Danae's desire to start a family and her overwhelming despair and intentions had me imagining myself in her shoes, and if I would react the same way. However, by the end of her journey, I've grown to appreciate the process Deborah wrote of her. Truth be told, her final understanding of God's blessings had me grateful for mine.  Stories of family and their bond have always intrigued me and Another Way Home is no different.  A beautiful story of family in an extended sense, as well as a family in marriage, and God's grace and blessing of it.  Bottom line, heart-wrenching, yet heart-warming, evoking emotions physically, emotionally and spiritually. Don't let this pass you by.
