Finding Our Way Home by Charlene Ann Baumbich * A Review

 Series: A Snowglobe Connections Novel
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.

Charlene Ann Baumbich is the author of the Dearest Dorothy series, Stray Affections, and Divine Appointments, as well as several nonfiction books of humor and inspiration. She is also a popular speaker, an award-winning journalist, and lives with her husband in Glen Ellyn, Illinois

  This is a really sweet story of love, peace and learning to live with yourself even when tragic things happen.
I really grew to love Evelyn and Sasha started out as employer/employee and how they became friends-almost like mother and daughter.
I love Evelyn’s upbeat ways and how she keeps going no matter what happens, how she sees the good in almost everyone.
  Sasha seemed so mean and hateful at first, but she had her reasons even though she didn’t need to feel that way.
Sasha has a loving husband and friends, but she left everything to be by herself and like Evelyn said she was having a pity party.
  I like Evelyn’s strong faith and how she got Sasha to think about everything and look to the future.
  I love how the snow globe means so much to Sasha and how her and her mother kept it through many, many years.
  I like this book, because it is such a sweet, loving story. I recommend it and know you would simply enjoy the book and this wonderful story.
