A Roller Coaster of Emotions
Another Way Home by Deborah Raney is the third book in the Chicory Inn series, although it can be read as a stand-alone. Having read the previous novels, it was wonderful to catch up with the familiar characters.
This novel follows the fortunes of Danae and Dallas as they desperately try to fulfil their dreams for a baby. They have been caught up in the IVF system for several years and failure is affecting Danae’s mood and all she comes into contact with. Another Way Home follows the couple on their roller coaster emotional journey.
Linked in to the IVF theme is the theme of family. Danae comes from a close knit family of five siblings, with their parents at the head. Her parents believe in fostering family bonds, and open their home every Tuesday evening for a family bring and share meal. The young cousins grow up knowing each other and with a huge sense of family.
