Publisher's Description

When the road home becomes daunting—sometimes a very capable girl on a bicycle can help find the way.
 
"Charming, surprising, familiar, and just downright wonderful."
—Allie Pleiter, author of Yukon Wedding and Bluegrass Blessings
 
When principal ballerina Sasha Davis suffers a career-ending injury at age thirty-eight, she leaves her Boston-based dance company and retreats to the home of her youth in Minnesota. But Sasha’s injuries limit her as much as her mother’s recent death haunts her. Concluding she can’t recover alone, Sasha reluctantly hires a temporary live-in aide.
 
Enter the übercapable Evelyn Burt. As large-boned as Sasha is delicate, Evelyn is her employer’s opposite in every way. Small town to Sasha’s urban chic, outgoing to Sasha’s iciness, and undaunted where Sasha is hopeless, nineteen-year-old Evelyn is newly engaged and sees the world as one big, shiny opportunity.
 
Evelyn soon discovers Sasha needs to heal more than bones. Slowly, as the wounds begin to mend and the tables tilt, the two women form an unlikely alliance and discover the astounding power of even the smallest act done in the name of love. Finding Our Way Home is a story of second chances and lavish grace.

Publisher's Weekly

For her third novel in the Snowglobe Connections series, Baumbich (the Dearest Dorothy series) returns to smalltown Wanonishaw, Minn., where Sasha Davis retreats to her childhood home to recover when an injury ends her career as a prima ballerina. Shutting out her husband and dance partner, Donald, Sasha copes with pain and depression. Comfort comes from memories, a mystifying snow globe that her mother gave her at the beginning of her dance career, and from an unlikely source: her 19-year-old easy-going, upbeat personal assistant, Evelyn, who is working through some problems of her own. Small acts of kindness lead to unexpected, strong bonds of friendship between the two women in this gentle tale of grace, second chances, leaps of faith, and finding a way through difficult circumstances. Baumbich’s technique of telling the story from inside the head of each character creates sympathy for them despite their flaws, but proves tedious in propelling the plot because the reader is too long in the dark about why Sasha won’t see her husband, why he stays away for many months, and why Evelyn abandons dreams of college to become engaged against her parents’ wishes.
