Finding Our Way Home by Charlene Ann Baumbich

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Water Book Publishers.  Sasha Davis was the principal ballerina for her dance company until she had a career-ending fall.  Now, she is back home in small town Minnesota alone.  Needing help she hires Evelyn Burt to move in and take care of her.   The both discover much about each other in the time that they spend together.  This was a fun book.  I enjoyed the recovery that was portrayed.  Sasha had not only physical, but emotional and spiritual injuries to overcome.  My heart broke for Donald.  Evelyn also had to go through a rough patch and I liked how she came out stronger than before.  Both Sasha and Evelyn realized that life doesn't always turn out as expected.  Sometimes, when one door is hut, another even better one is opened.  The characters were fun.  The book was well written and I enjoyed reading it.  I would give it 3.5/5 stars.
