Another Way Home Book Review

I picked out this book because I really enjoyed the last book that I read in this series so I wanted to see where the series was going.  Another Way Home: A Chicory Inn Novel - Book 3 by Deborah Raney was the next in the series which I was excited to find out what happened next.  After reading this book and learning more about the other family members in the Whitman family, I really want to look into the first book in the series!! So sorry that I missed it at the beginning of this series.

Grandchildren are not in short supply for Grant and Audrey Whitman, although their middle daughter, Danae, and her husband, Dallas Brooks, after trying for years, have not been able to contribute to the growing family. Danae is open to adoption, but Dallas will not even discuss it. Her despair over never having a family of her own is so deep, it even causes her to question God’s plan for her life. Knowing she must find something to do to fill her lonely days and energize her life, Danae volunteers to work at a newly opened women’s shelter in town. She was only looking for a way to spend her time, but getting to know the hurting women at the shelter fills her heart and she learns to live a life of gratitude once again. But heart-wrenching events on Thanksgiving weekend threaten to pull the entire Whitman clan into turmoil— and leave them all forever changed.

I didn't get to read this very quickly because there were too many things going on with working and my son's school and the upcoming holiday but I really enjoyed the time that I set aside to read the book.  There was a little bit at the beginning of the book where Danae seemed to be whining about how horrible her life was because she couldn't have a child but that was quickly over when she decided to turn her life around.  She went to volunteer at the women's shelter and learned how wonderful her life was and how she could help others.  It was great to watch how Danae grew and how she became more happy when she was helping others.  I was really interested to learn about the fertility treatment or adoption process.  I hope that you check out this book at your local library or bookstore soon.  I think that you will enjoy this book and others in the series.  Let me know if you check them out and what you think!!

**I received a copy of this book for my review and honest opinion.  All opinions here are my own.
