Finding Our Way Home Review

When I started reading "Finding Our Way Home" by Charlene Ann Baumbich, I felt that the story in the beginning was rather slow. I also didn't like the characters' personalities very much. There wasn't anyone in the story that I really related to. But the more I read in the story, the more I started to like the characters and wonder where the story was going.

I felt like the character of Sasha was not very realistic. She is a ballerina who has gotten a career-ending injury at the age of 38, but she acts like an 80-year old. This girl is just a few years older than I am, but she acted way older than her age. Although, I suppose her personality needs to be taken into account for that too. The other main character is a 19-year old named Evelyn, who is breezy and naive and brave and capable of doing anything! She seemed really overbearing in the beginning of the book, but by the end, I rather liked her.

The book is the story of the relationship between these two women. It was an easy read after the first few chapters, and I did enjoy it once I got into it.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
