I have had Finding Our Way Home by Charlene Ann Baumbich for close to a year now. It has taken me a while to pick it up to read because it’s not my usual type of book (I’m a fan of the suspense/mysteries or the full on romances). I finally determined to read through this book this weekend. And what surprised me the most was how quickly I read through the book.
Sasha Davis, a ballerina, has returned to her small Minnesota town to recover from career-ending injuries. Evelyn Burk is a spunky, determined young lady who has taken on the task of taking care of Ms. Davis. Both women have hurts in their life and at first butt heads but as they spend time together, learning more about each other, they develop an unlikely friendship. Through their time sharing together, both grow in their faith and their hurts and wounds begin to heal.
I did find the part with the snow globe a little hokey but other than that, it was a fairly decent read. And while a little slow at the beginning as you are introduced to the characters, Finding Our Way Home has a lot of heart. You begin to feel for each of the characters and want them to find their happy endings. If you struggle with friendships with other females, this book just might give you a peek at what a true relationship should include.
