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.
"Another Way Home" is the third installment in the Chicory Inn series, which is fabulous. These books can be read as stand-alone books, but reading them as a series is much better and makes more sense in my opinion. Deborah does a good job at giving some of the background knowledge of the other two books if the information is relevant and necessary. This book really spoke to the season of my life and was hard for me to read at times.
Do you ever expect for something to go a certain way and it doesn't go that way? Dallas and Danae having been trying for years to conceive a child, but that is not happening. Danae finally comes to a place where is ready to consider adoption, but her husband is not even interested in the idea. Crushed, Danae decides to volunteer at a women's shelter to take her mind off the stress of creating a family, her sisters pregnancies and the everyday stresses. Then Danae gets involved with mentoring Misty, a woman at the shelter who finds herself in trouble with the law. This leads Danae to a new way home that she never imagined.
In the end, this book ties up beautifully and Deborah makes it all come together in way that is heartwarming. I cannot wait for book four!! You will love this book. I give this 5 stars! I love this series and cannot say enough good things about it!
