Introducing to you…
Gina Holmes’ debut novel:  
Release: May 1st, 2010

Gina says, “This novel has been ten years in the making.”

More about the book from Gina:

"Before Tyndale contracted this book, I had written four others that collect dust. While I was writing and getting rejected I started up Novel Journey as a way to give back, promoting other authors while working toward my turn."

Crossing Oceans
is getting amazing reviews and early feedback and it is the story of the author's heart. 

Book Summary:
Nothing deepens a stream like a good rain . . . or makes it harder to cross. Jenny Lucas swore she’d never go home again. But life has a way of upending even the best-laid plans. Now, years after she left, she and her five-year-old daughter 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 to change everything—to heal old hurts, to bring new beginnings . . . even to overcome the impossible.
