rustic.. For the cranberry-pear-walnut sauce, what would be a good non-alcoholic replacement for Brandy? Serving a very religious family.

flat Dr. Pepper has an amazingly brandy-like flavor.

This explains all those recipes that use Dr Pepper...

from a handy source on replacements for alcohol
"Brandy – Water, white grape juice, apple cider or apple juice, diluted peach or apricot syrups. Substitute equal amounts of liquid."

I would use apple cider in place of the brandy.

I'd go with apple cider or apple juice. You could even use orange juice with this mix of flavors.
