Book Description:

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 Review:

Infertility is a tough issue that faces many more families than we realize. While it has been touched on in Christian fiction, I have enjoyed these novels that address the hard, nitty gritty emotional issues that these families face. I felt like this book really addressed a topic that often Christians tend to minimize. The emotional pain that adoption can hold on all fronts, for all those involved. Ms. Raney, once again, does an amazing job of endearing you to this family. I will miss this series as I have enjoyed every one of them. I hope, even though Abingdon might not be printing fiction anymore, that another publisher will snatch Ms. Raney up quickly. We need more books like this one!
