Finding Our Way Home

by Charlene Ann Baumbich


When the road home becomes daunting—sometimes a very capable girl on a bicycle can help find the way. “Charming, surprising, familiar, and just downright wonderful.” —Allie Pleiter, author of Yukon Wedding and Bluegrass Blessings 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.


Finding Our Way Home features two unusual characters, Sasha and Evelyn, who are very different. Sasha is a ballet dancer and the man Evelyn is engaged to does not have her parents blessings. So these two characters take us on their journey of  finding their way through life.


This book was slow for me at first, then it picked up a bit. Both of these ladies seemed a bit lost, and not sure where they were going next. The author has created two entirely different characters and woven a story of their lives as they take on a journey to find their way, both in a very different way. I read this book thinking it was a Christian book, but I am not so sure about that, even though it is published by a Christian publisher. It just seemed like these ladies were using their own strength to find their way and not depending on God. They were focusing on Grace, but where they really focusing on God? This is just my opinion.


If you like an enjoyable, pleasant book to read, I recommend this book for your enjoyment.
