Finding Our Way Home - review
"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 uber-capable 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 tells a story about two women from different worlds who end up becoming unlikely friends. Evelyn, in her free-spirited way, encourages Sasha to face her fears of living and teaches her grace in the simplest way. To read the first chapter, please click here.
I enjoyed reading this book and loved getting to know Sasha and Evelyn. The twist and turns (no pun intended) kept me rooting for each character. I highly recommend this wonderful book.
