Another Way Home by Deborah Raney with #Review

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.

MY THOUGHTS- This series by Deborah Raney has been quite a trip. They are gritty and deal with real life issues that come upon us. If you have not read the previous books in the series, I would say do that before picking this one up. It can be very hard to follow the characters lives, even after reading the others in the series.

Each book kind of focuses on one family, but it is a continuation of the book before it, while it also includes all the other characters. A big family story:) This one mainly deals with Dallas and Danae(love her name by the way) who are struggling so hard to conceive. Danae is having a hard time with how much she longs for a child while Dallas is starting to get frustrated with her fixation. Her sister is pregnant, again, and so their relationship becomes strained when Danae finds out from a stranger. I have to give both Danae and Dallas credit, because while their marriage may not be the best at this point in time, they are both trying to work things out and save their relationship. I think that Deborah portrays them in a realistic way, they both have issues and problems to work through but they also love each other. I know someone in this situation, who has tried so hard to get pregnant but hasn't been able to. I know the struggles they go through and believe me, Deborah hits it right on. Perfect contemporary novel about the family!!
