Another Way Home: A Chicory Inn Novel - Book 3
by Deborah Raney
Nashville: Abingdon Press, 2015
It is the mark of a good writer that you can pick up the 3rd book in a series and still follow along and enjoy the book. This was the case with "Another Way Home" by Deborah Rainey. Danae and her husband Dallas are suffering from infertility. Knee-deep in costly infertility treatments that have not had the desired effect, their marriage is struggling. Danae is also suffering from extreme resent and jealousy of her sister who is expecting child number four, a completely unplanned pregnancy. Danae would like to consider adoption, but Dallas, adopted as a baby, refuses to consider it.
Dallas suggests that Danae take on some volunteer activity to fill her days and take her mind off her infertility. A battered woman's shelter wasn't what he had in mind, but that is where she ends up. There she encounters a young woman named Misty and her son Austin, who will change their lives in more ways than she could ever imagine.
"Another Way Home" is a well-written, engaging story about family, faith, adoption, and finding God's will in unexpected places.
