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.
This is the third book of the Chicory Inn series about the Whitman family. In each novel, one of Whitman children has a problem that needs to be dealt with. So far we have heard from the two other daughter's of the family, this story deals with Danae, the middle daughter. Danae has been trying desperately for years to start a family, the stress of constantly being disappointed in her inability to conceive starts to cause tension between her and her sisters since they don't seem to have a problem conceiving childen. Dallas needed to let go of some pain from his past in order for God's perfect plan to take place. This is a great example of what happens when you let go and let God. I am eagering waiting for the fourth book Close to Home that is scheduled to be released in June of next year. Learn more here, purchase a on Amazon.
