Book Review, “Finding Our Way Home,” Charlene Ann Baumbich author

Finding Our Way Home, by Charlene Ann Baumbich, is an interesting story.  The main character, Sasha Davis, and her husband had a serious fall during a ballet performance, ending her career.  While her husband is able to heal and return to ballet, Sasha pushes him away and falls into a depression.

Sasha returns to her childhood home to recover, hiring Evelyn as her assistant.  Evelyn is a wonderful character, full of life and dealing with a multitude of issues in her own life.  As Sasha’s body heals, she realizes her mistake in pushing away her husband and reconciles with him.  She and Evelyn move from an employer-employee relationship to close friends, a charming story line.

However, other than a few undeveloped references to faith or grace, there was not much of a Christian element to this story.  There was not much talk of a relationship with Christ or salvation, though I did appreciate the many references to Evelyn resisting her temptations to go further with her fiancé than just kissing.  I was also concerned with the references to fortune telling, talisman, and magic that tied in to the snow globe.  They seemed very out of place for Christian fiction.

Overall, this was a quaint story of a ballerina dealing with her career suddenly crashing to an end.  It is a recommended read.
