Finding Our Way Home by Charlene Ann Baumbich 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. Finding she cannot live alone, Sasha hires a live in assistant. The assistant is Evelyn Burt, as opposite Sasha as she could be, being a large young woman with a 9 ½ shoe size. We soon find that each of the characters have wounds which they can help one another heal. Starting out as Boss and Employee, they soon find themselves as dear friends. This story was rather slow in the beginning, the characters didn’t quite fully develop. As the story continued there were sweet moments, but overall it lacked depth. Introducing premarital passion and marital intimacy was a topic that seemed very out of place in this story. The Christian message was very weak and vague. I found the reference to “faith” and “grace” completely undeveloped and awkward in this story. I was bothered by the fortune telling, talisman and magic represented in the story, as though these were messages from God. The front cover compares the story to those written by Jan Karon and I didn’t find the comparison true at all. This is just not a book I can recommend.

This book was provided to me by WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
