Finding Our Way Home: A Review.


Finding our Way Home by Charlene Ann Baumbich

The road home can be daunting—and sometimes it takes a very capable girl on a bicycle to help find the way.

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 restrict her movement and her recently deceased mother’s absence haunts her. Since she can’t recover alone, she is forced to hire a temporary live-in aide.
 
Enter the übercapable Evelyn Burt. As large-boned as Sasha is tiny, Evelyn is her employer’s opposite in every way. Small town to Sasha’s urban chic, outgoing warmth to Sasha’s aloof iciness, and idealistic 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.

In the beginning I wasn’t a huge fan of how everybody treated each other. Sasha annoyed me to no end, she was mean to everyone. I know she was hurting from her injuries and her life. Evelyn annoyed me because she was a love sick puppy, and how this was set up. How she was engaged at nineteen and the man she is engaged too. Seems to want one thing, and when she is true to what she believes in. Relationships in books like this seem to be predictable. I must admit the emotions were everywhere, in good places and heart aching. The back stories to these characters were very emotional as well. The book seemed to be a little bit predictable in the little predictable twists and turns. Other then that it was a good book of second chances.

I received this from Water brook press for my review.
