Finding Our Way Home by Charlene Baumbich

About this book:

When 
principal ballerina Sasha Davis suffers a career-ending injury at age thirty-eight, she leaves her Boston-based dance company and retreats to the home of her youth in Minnesota. But Sasha’s injuries limit her as much as her mother’s recent death haunts her. Concluding she can’t recover alone, Sasha reluctantly hires a temporary live-in aide.

Enter the übercapable Evelyn Burt. As large-boned as Sasha is delicate, Evelyn is her employer’s opposite in every way. Small town to Sasha’s urban chic, outgoing to Sasha’s iciness, and undaunted where Sasha is hopeless, nineteen-year-old Evelyn is newly engaged and sees the world as one big, shiny opportunity.

Evelyn soon discovers Sasha needs to heal more than bones. Slowly, as the wounds begin to mend and the tables tilt, the two women form an unlikely alliance and discover the astounding power of even the smallest act done in the name of love. Finding Our Way Home is a story of second chances and lavish grace


 


My Thoughts:


When I first started reading this book I thought it would be too full of flowery, over-the-top writing to truely enjoy the story, but thankfully, I was wrong. After the first chapter I started getting into the plot line and getting to know Evelyn and Sasha. From the start I felt bad for them both. They both wanted more than what they had right now. Evelyn wanted to be independent and "free," and in a way so did Sasha. Sasha knew freedom but after her accident was completely dependent on others. I enjoyed seeing the characters grow and change throughout the story, and I would definitely read more novels by this author.

  1. Hey Melinda,

    Thank you so much for your review! Glad I didn't deliver too much "flowery." (Love that!) I'm thrilled you enjoyed FINDING OUR WAY HOME, the third book in the Snowglobe Connections series.

    I also wrote the Dearest Dorothy series. If you like reading about life in a small town, I think you'd enjoy the folks in Partonville IL as much as those in Wanonishaw MN. :)
