I recently read Finding Our Way Home by Charlene Ann Baumbich. This was the first time I had read one of her books, so I didn’t know what to expect, but I really enjoyed the story overall. Finding Our Way Home tells the story of a principal ballerina, Sasha, who is sidelined as a result of an injury, and who has to overcome her grief over the loss of her career and life as she knew it, to find a new purpose for her life. Along the way, she meets Evelyn, a bubbly and capable nineteen-year-old ball of energy who challenges her to the very core. It’s the story of love lost, love found again, and overcoming what seem like insurmountable obstacles.
I was surprised at how little the author referenced God, and that she never referenced Christ since this is marketed as “Christian fiction”. On the flip side, however, it is a book that non-believers might also enjoy and could be a good conversation starter. It’s a nice, easy read, well written, and has a happy ending—so I give it 4.5 stars!
You can pre order a copy (not available until March) at Amazon.com or Barnes & Noble. You can even check out the first chapter here! I received a copy of this book for free as part of the Blogging for Books program through WaterBrook Multnomah. All opinions are 100% mine.
