Finding Our Way Home by Charlene Ann Baumbich




How/where do I start. . .?


Okay, this book is about a 38 yr-old ballerina (dancer) named Sasha who suffers an injury that ends her dancing career. For good. Running back to her hometown, where memories of her late mother bound, Sasha can't help but feel sorry for herself. After all, she could no longer dance with her husband, Donald, on stage and had lost out on the only chance in her career to dance "Giselle". Hopes dashed, heart torn, and body near being invalid, Sasha resigns to her fate. That is, until capable 19 yr-old Evelyn becomes Sasha's care-giver.

Sasha quickly learns that she must take whatever life throws at her.

My thoughts: It was okay. It was not my favorite book. I'll give it 4 stars. The writing style was okay, I didn't find many punctuation and grammar mistakes. It just wasn't the kind of book I like to read. The characters didn't jump off the page. I didn't feel like I was there. I couldn't "see" the scenes playing out in my head. There were a few touches of humor and romance, but other than that, it was boring. Do I recommend this book? I would to a person who likes to read what I call "Plain Jane" books.

  2. Oh no! I'm sorry you didn't like the book. But I do appreciate your heartfelt and well-voiced review. this one is up next on my list for review. I figured by the description it wasn't going to be a riveting book. I hope I like it :)

    1. I did the same. I knew by the description it wasn't going to keep me turning the pages, but I tried to keep an open mind and nearly danced when it was over. But it was the only book that they had that I would even consider reviewing. Hope you enjoy it more than I did!
