Even in times when we think we can't, such as career ending injuries, faith is a must. And that is what Sasha must have as she moves home after an injury ends her career as a ballerina.

Even in times when we think we can't, such as career ending injuries, faith is a must. And that is what Sasha must have as she moves home after an injury ends her career as a ballerina.
It's not just her injuries that limit her though, the death of her mother haunts her.
When Sasha realizes that she needs help, she hires a 19 year old named Evelyn, as opposite from her as one could get. Evelyn sees life as a great opportunity, while Sasha continues to dwell on the could have beens.
In order for Sasha to heal, the two form an unlikely bond that is sweet and really made me think of some of my own friendships and why and how they have formed.
This is a great book and one I would recommend to anyone who was at a loss for faith, at a crossroads in life and needed that little extra pick me up to help them get through the situation.
I will definitely be looking for more of this authors work.


I received this book for free in exchange for a fair and honest review. This review is my own opinion and was not biased in any way..

After my life settled down a tad, I decided to give it a go and read this lovely book. The story starts off with Sasha, the once famous prima ballerina… Sitting in an old rocking chair, remembering the years past. After suffering a horrific fall, Sasha moves home...
After my life settled down a tad, I decided to give it a go and read this lovely book. The story starts off with Sasha, the once famous prima ballerina… Sitting in an old rocking chair, remembering the years past. After suffering a horrific fall, Sasha moves home. Eager to separate herself from the ballet world. Due to her injury however she requires a home health aid, Evelyn Burt. Miss Burt is completely opposite of Sasha. Big boned, bossy, sharp tongued.. But she grows on you! Evelyn not only helps Sasha heal physically but mentally as well.

When I first started reading this book, I couldn’t figure out if I liked the book or not. I just couldn’t put my finger on what was with this book. Was it the characters? Was it how the story was portrayed? Nope.. None of that.. Then I realized this was a Snow Globe Novel. The author Charlene Ann Baumbich is famous for writing these books about snow globes and how they are a metaphor for the lead character’s life and blah blah blah! Honestly, I wanted to like this book until I realized it was a snow globe novel. I think this book would have done just fine if the snow globe storyline had just been left out!

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. I was not require to post a positive review. These opinions are mine and mine alone.

    No one is home

    I kept hoping that the story will go somewhere, and it will get better, but it didn't. The book cover was inviting, but the story was not. I struggled to finish this book.
