Divine Appointments - A Book Review


Divine Appointments by Charlene Ann Baumbich carries you into the world of corporate restructuring through the eyes of a 47 year old consultant.  Josie is smart, talented and at the top of her game - helping  businesses restructure during thecurrent economic downturn.  She is living a dream life of no financial concerns, no day-in day-out boss telling her what to do, the next work site just around the corner, and thriving on her independence.  Yet, can anyone truly live happily in their well-ordered solitary existence?

While working a job in Chicago, Josie simultaneously battles hot flashes and a mid-life crisis.  After picking up a mysterious snowglobe while on a trip, she slowly sees her life as it is - lonely, loveless, and transient.  But is it too late for her to make relational connections so late in life?  How?

Charlene Baumbich has invited us into the lives of the characters - many of whom I can relate to!  Grab a nice cup of tea, a warm blanket, and curl up and enjoy Divine Appointments.

  2. Hi, I popped over from Word-Filled Wednesday and enjoyed your book review. Very intriguing to discover a novel with someone around my age (baby boomer generation :) ). I'll have to check it out.

    Must be the week for book reviews. I saw several this week, plus I have one for one of Kay Arthur books, to help a Christian deal with pain and suffering in her life. :)

    Have a blessed week.
