2011 Carol Award winner for Debut Author from ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers)
Jenny Lucas swore she’d never go home again. But being told you’re dying has a way of changing things. Years after she left, she 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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Heartwrenchingly Beautiful 23. April 2010
Von Jennifer - Veröffentlicht auf
I am one of the pickiest readers and this book captivated me from page one. Not only is Gina Holme's a terrific writer with beautiful prose, but her story is as real as it gets. It's not often a book can make me laugh out loud and cry all within the same bound pages, but Crossing Oceans did that and more. It's a painfully beautiful story that will keep you awake until 2am just to finish it in one sitting. You won't want to leave her characters. In fact, I want to know them more. I highly recommend this book and I can only say that about less than a handful of fiction books out there. This is one you won't want to miss! Can't wait to read more from this lovely author.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Stunning Debut 22. April 2010
Von Ane Mulligan - Veröffentlicht auf
I've read thousands of books in my lifetime, but few have ever stayed with me like Crossing Oceans. Gina Holmes taps into every emotion known to man, and she does it well. She has truly mastered the art of storytelling. The young mother, Jenny, will capture your heart on the first page, as will her daughter, Isabella. But this isn't a simple story by any means. It's deep and complex. You'll go from tears to laughter, and when you turn the last page, you'll wish it wasn't. This is a book you want to go on. I highly recommend it.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Warning: This is a religious book 27. September 2011
Von Jamie Cantwell - Veröffentlicht auf
That tidbit doesn't turn up on this product's page. If I had known it was a religious book, I would not have bothered with it. If you don't have a religious mindset, then you probably will not like this. Plus, it seems targeted to 6th graders, not adults.

Don't bother flaming me. I'm just sending this out to warn others. I'm not the only one in the world who feels this way and I wish I had noticed a review that mentioned it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Tear-Jerking, Poignant, Hopeful Debut 23. April 2010
Von Kelly Klepfer - Veröffentlicht auf
I am always hesitant to review a book written by a friend. Can you imagine how much more apprehensive I was reading the debut novel from not only a friend but a critique partner? A critique partner lives to rip and shred work to point out what's wrong and what needs to be changed to make the work readable.

Though I've critiqued Gina Holmes for years, I had just glimpses into Crossing Oceans and I knew it was a very different style from her previous suspense novels. Her suspense is strong. But how well would her voice translate to women's fiction?

Once I opened her book and began to read I can say that her voice translates with a poignant grace that is rare in a debut novelist. And Crossing Oceans is a story that Holmes was meant to tell.

Holmes tackles a heavy story line with a touch of whimsy and deep, deep melancholy, sometimes in the same paragraph. A young mother, emotionally orphaned when her mother died and father cocooned himself in a cloak of angry grief, finds herself forced to return to the home she had escaped. Jenny has Stage IV metastatic cancer and must reunite with the family she fled for the sake of her little girl's very near future need. With less than a year to repair and restore relationships Jenny tackles the past and the future, the present and the pain, all while attempting to give her daughter, Isabella, memories and love and what life she has available to give.

This is a novel that quickly overcame the author and my relationship with her. The story told itself in a realistic and three-dimensional tale of life and death, sorrow and fear, choices and consequences, pain and beauty, loss and hope. Holmes voice is similar to some of my favorite authors in the Christian fiction genre, Siri Mitchell, Charles Martin, Susan Meissner, Claudia Mair Burney, Lisa Samson and Bonnie Groves.

Crossing Oceans is not an easy read. It is haunting and beautiful and raw. Expect to cry and expect to remember this family long after you turn the last page.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Unsettling dialog 23. November 2010
Von C. DeWald - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Overall, this book is ok but some of the dialog between David and Jenny is unrealistic and unsettling. I can't imagine, even the most evil person, telling a dying person that "the cancer must have gone to your brain" during a heated argument. At times, I wanted this book to end, it drug on and on. Then in other parts of the story, I never wanted it to end but end it did. I'm still thinking about the book that I finished yesterday so therefore I know that it affected me. I'm just not sure how. Read it for yourself and draw your own conclusions.
