Publisher's Weekly

In Gina Holmes’ debut novel, Crossing Oceans, love finds a way to heal scarred hearts, deal with tragedy, and provide second chances in unexpected ways. Jenny Lucas returns to her small town in North Carolina, a place she left for a reason, when a fatal diagnosis forces her hand. She and her young daughter Isabella move back in with her father and ailing grandmother to spend the remainder of her time at home and make things right. While there, she is forced to confront strained relationships with her emotionally-detached father, as well as her ex-boyfriend, David, who doesn’t know he fathered Isabella and has since married. Along the way, she also finds feelings for her old friend, Craig—feelings that, though mutual, can never be fulfilled. All the while, Isabella must be prepared for Jenny’s coming death. Jenny fights an emotional battle and struggles to find healing, forgiveness, and love.

This novel is absolutely amazing. The characters are quirky, relatable, and incredibly realistic. The emotional struggle that the characters find themselves in as a result of Jenny’s unfortunate news is gripping and keeps readers turning pages. From the start of the novel, the reader is there. What’s more, there is nothing clichéd or predictable about this story. Everything – from characters to plot twists—is original and unique, demonstrating Holmes’ refreshingly strong and distinct voice. This fabulous story will keep readers wanting more.

Crossing Oceans has a strong emotional hook and will keep you reading until you wipe your eyes, blow your nose, and find your place again. This book will make you think, it will make you laugh, and it will definitely make you cry. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for something new and different in Christian fiction and has a few tears to spare. – Shannon Potelicki, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    While I was at the ACFW Conference I picked up, Crossing Oceans by Gina Holmes.I just had to share this beautifully written book with you. What an emotional ride of tears and laughter. Oh, this is one of the sweetest, most meaningful books I have had the pleasure of reading. As I walked through the book store this was the first book I picked up. Wow, did God know what He was doing.

    The main character is Jenny Lucas. Home is not the place she ever expected to visit again, but that is exactly where the Lord has taken her. We meet her precious baby girl, and Jenny's father, whom she hasn't seen for six years. We too meet other characters that will touch your heart in ways you didn't think possible.

    Such vibrant characters live within these pages. This is one of those unforgettable books that will tear your heart apart. I tell you I cried as I turned the pages of this book. Ah, but this story is just not filled with sadness. It if filled with the precious hope of Christ. We see faith and a love that is unconditional.

    I can tell you that Gina Holmes is a Rock Star Writer! For her debut novel this is one of the best books ever! I promise, you cannot grab this book up fast enough. I walked away from reading this book with a reminder that when I feel like giving up or feel as though I cannot make it another moment, God is there to guide my way and to fill me with all I need. Life is precious and we must live each day as though it was our very last.

    Even though I have met the author, Gina, and had been hoping for - and looking forward to - her debut novel for a long time, I admit I was a little bit nervous about the book's topic at first. Would it be depressing? Did I really want to devote so much time to a novel that might make me feel sad and hopeless no matter how well-written? I am so glad I read this lovely novel. It was full of hope and redemption. This beautiful story is one of the best I've read in CBA fiction, although I would not limit this novel to only Christian readers. I would recommend the book to both Christians and non-Christians for its wonderfully told story and its message of hope.

    I found this book on sale at a local Christian bookstore and bought it because it sounded interesting. In this case, I judged the book by the cover but it went beyond what I expected. I could hardly put it down! I will definitely be looking for more books by Gina Holmes.

    You can't go back home again...unless you're dying and need to choose who will become the guardian of Isabella, the most precious little girl in the world.

    Years ago, Jenny Lucas left her two-light North Carolina town in her rear view mirror, taking secrets and her unborn, out-of-wedlock daughter with her. Then cancer strikes the blow that forces her to think of Isabella's future...and bring those secrets, blistered and ready to pop, back home.

    At odds with her father, tormented by the once-love of her life and his little Mrs. perfect wife, Jenny finds someone who loves her despite the fact that she's dying. But whose future, whose dreams, would God have Jenny preserve?

    In her amazing debut novel, Gina Homes scales the ladder of human emotions, captures the sometimes insular life in the small-town South, and wows you with her unpredictable ending. This is a book you DO NOT want to miss!
