Drenched in Light, book #10

Well, its been a while since I have read in this series, but it didn't take me too long to get back into it.  In fact, it was in 2015 when I read the first and second books in this Tending Roses series.  I know I also read the third book, but I must have forgotten to record it when I did.  I must say, I wasn't sure I was going to like it at first, because I'm not as much into "coming into oneself" books but by the time I was half way through I was hooked.  Each book in this series has been its own "coming of age" book, which is probably why I can't read them all in a row, but since this one has just one more I'll probably go ahead and read it and mark this series off my list.  

Once a gifted ballet dancer, Julia Costell buckled under the demands of a professional dance career, and has landed with a thud in an unglamorous job as a guidance counselor at a performing arts high school. Living back home with her parents and feeling lost, she is afraid she’ll never soar again…until the day young Dell Jordan is sent to her office, carrying an essay.  In Dell’s writing, Julia sees luminous sparks of hope. But as she fights to forge a brighter future for one disadvantaged student, she is drawn into startling undercurrents of conflict and denial within the academy. Only when she is tested in ways she never could have imagined does she begin to discover where real meaning and fulfillment lie—and realize that even though her life has seemed off course, she’s been on the right path all along.
