{MORE ABOUT ANOTHER WAY HOME}

Another Way Home (Abingdon Press, October 2015)
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.

Deborah Raney’s 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 Kansas—the setting of many of Deborah’s novels—for 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.

MY REVIEW OF THIS READ:  This is the third book in the Chicory Inn Series.   Come join Dallas and Danae Brooks as they tread the waters of infertility and face the question of adoption.   

Danae begins a journey of trying to find purpose in her life when she volunteers through her church at a shelter for battered women through her church.  The women that she comes to know through the shelter starts giving her purpose.

Will Dallas still be stubborn or will he bend to the idea of adoption?   What will happen to him and Danae?

My feelings about Danae .... yes, she seems a little distant and at times even short with her sisters who do not seem to have any problems conceiving.  How would you respond when everyone around you seems to have no problems having children?   How do you tread the waters of infertility, adoption and even foster parenting?

Join Danae and Dallas as they find their way in the book Another Way Home.

***This book deals with foster parenting, adoption and includes Domestic Violence too***
