“The book is an enthralling read that made me both laugh and cry. I literally couldn’t put it down. I suspect you will feel the same way.”
—Midwest Book Review Bookwatch, reviewer Alma Bond
When the road home becomes daunting—a very capable girl on a bicycle can help find the way.
Beloved writer Charlene Baumbich turns her pen to the topic of unlikely friendships and lavish grace in her newest novel. Set in small-town Minnesota, the novel’s warm humor and small town feel will resonate with Baumbich fans. Meanwhile, the ballet backdrop provides an exciting glimpse into the world of dance.
When principal ballerina Sasha Davis suffers a career-ending injury at age thirty-eight, she retreats to her recently deceased mother’s home to recover. Reluctantly accepting that she can’t recover alone, she hires nineteen year-old übercapable Evelyn Burt. As the wounds begin to mend, the women form an unlikely alliance and discover the astounding power of even thesmallest act done in the name of love.
Charlene Ann Baumbich is the author of the Dearest Dorothy series,Stray Affections, and Divine Appointments, as well as several nonfiction books of humor and inspiration. She is also a popular speaker, an award-winning journalist, and lives with her husband in Glen Ellyn, Illinois.
