Wings of Glass


“WINGS OF GLASS deserves the highest praise. For a storyline that is gripping, with several unexpected turns. For characters who dance off the pages and into your heart. And for bringing awareness to an issue that isn’t typically addressed in Christian fiction.”


“Gina Holmes pours her heart onto the page in Wings of Glass. . . . If you’ve ever suffered at the hands of someone whose idea of showing love is being abusive, you will find a kindred spirit in Penny Taylor. You’ll also find hope and a gentle but firm call to open your eyes to the truth. Wings of Glass is a powerful, can’t-put-down novel, so real that it reads like a memoir.”

Liz Curtis Higgs, New York Times bestselling author of Mine Is the Night


“Gina Holmes ’ stunning literary talent glistens like crystal in Wings of Glass. With subtle brilliance, she takes us into the very heart of what makes us hungry to love and be loved. Simply stellar!”  Susan Meissner, Author of A Sound Among the Trees

“Gina Holmes brings to vibrant life the heart and mind of a young woman trapped in a dangerous relationship. Wings of Glass is a moving novel filled with humor, grit, and grace.” Julie Klassen, award-winning author


“I was swept away by Gina Holmes’s memoir-like story of beauty rising from the ashes. An honest and realistic look at abuse is never easy in fiction, but Holmes weaves the story with grace, ease, and above all, hope.” Rachel Hauck, author of The Wedding Dress


“Gina Holmes is known for crafting intense literary prose and dynamically drawn characters. With Wings of Glass, she’s done it again, creating a painful world of domestic violence and examining the reasons victims sometimes remain loyal to their abusers.” Julie Cantrell, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Into the Free


Wings of Glass (March 2013)

From the bestselling author of Crossing Oceans comes a heart-rending yet uplifting story of friendship and redemption. On the cusp of womanhood, Penny  is swept off her feet by a handsome farmhand with a confident swagger. Though Trent Taylor seems like Prince Charming and offers an escape from her one-stop-sign-town, Penny’s happily ever after lasts no longer than their breakneck courtship. Before the ink even dries on their marriage certificate, he hits her for the first time.  It isn’t the last, yet the bruises that can’t be seen are the most painful of all.

     When Trent is injured in a welding accident and his paycheck stops, he has no choice but to finally allow Penny to take a job cleaning houses. Here she meets two women from very different worlds who will teach her to live and laugh again, and lend her their backbones just long enough for her to grow her own.
