Another Way Home: A Chicory Inn Novel – Book 3 – by Deborah Raney
“Another Way Home” is book 3 in the Chicory Inn series which is the parents (Grant and Audrey) family home that was turned into a bed and breakfast in book 1.
This story mostly follows one of the daughters and her husband-Danae and Dallas. They have tried for years to get pregnant and even after fertility drugs, Danae starts to become hopeless and depressed about not being able to start their family.
She becomes involved in a womens shelter where she starts to feel more at peace with having a purpose and making a difference in people’s lives.
The other siblings and parents from book 1 and 2 are mentioned through out this book, and although it would make sense to read them in order, they can be read as stand alone books.
One thing I mentioned that I didn’t like about book 2 was the moms attitude about helping her family versus working at their bed and breakfast. I was happy to see that wasn’t the case during this book. I did notice that the dad, Grant had more of a role and a relationship with this daughter than the mother.
I can’t wait to read book 4 called “Close to Home” that comes out next year. This has been a very good, heart warming, emotional series that I have greatly enjoyed!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from LitFuse Publicity in exchange for an honest review on my blog and social media-all opinions are my own.

About the book:
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.
