On occasion I feature a new release, apart from my interviews with authors. Rather than giving the author's book away, I simply add commenters' names an extra time to existing drawings. This week let's take a look at Gina Holmes's debut novel, Crossing Oceans (Tyndale House Publishers, May 2010).
A little about Gina:
In 1998, Gina Holmes began her career penning articles and short stories. In 2005 she founded the influential literary blog, Novel Journey. She holds degrees in science and nursing and currently resides with her husband and children in Southern Virginia. To learn more about her, visit: www.ginaholmes.com or www.noveljourney.blogspot.com.
And what's the book about?
Years after she left, Jenny Lucas and her five-year-old daughter, Isabella, must return to her sleepy North Carolina town to face the ghosts she left behind. They welcome her in the form of her oxygen tank–toting grandmother, her stoic and distant father, and David, Isabella's dad . . . who doesn't yet know he has a daughter. As Jenny navigates the rough and unknown waters of her new reality, the unforgettable story that unfolds is a testament to the power of love and its ability to change everything--to heal old hurts, bring new beginnings . . . even overcome the impossible. A stunning debut about love and loss from a talented new voice.
Here's a trailer about the novel.
