Afternoon, readers! Today I have an update about Wings of Glass, an inspiring new novel from bestselling author Gina Holmes. This Saturday, March 2, at 3:25 pm ET, Gina will be featured on the radio program The Drew Marshall Show to talk about her personal story and the journey of writing a novel about such a challenging and delicate topic: domestic violence. Here’s a brief summary of the story:
From the bestselling author of Crossing Oceans comes a heartrending yet uplifting story of friendship and redemption. On the cusp of adulthood, eighteen-year-old Penny Carson thought she’d found her Prince Charming in farmhand Trent Taylor. With flashy promises and a handsome face to back them up, Trent was her escape from an overbearing father and her one-stop-sign town. But Penny’s happily-ever-after lasts no longer than their breakneck courtship.
Out of options, she resigns herself to the fate of a woman controlled by a man with no control . . . until a welding accident at work forces Trent to finally allow Penny to take a job cleaning houses. Here she meets two women from very different worlds who open up her life to endless possibilities, teach her to live and laugh again—and lend her their backbones just long enough for her to find her own.
Wings of Glass, now available in bookstores and online, has been highly praised by publications and readers alike:
“[Wings of Glass] deftly portray[s] the nuances of an abusive relationship [and] why battered women don’t immediately leave their abusers. . . . This gripping novel is sure to appeal to Christian and secular readers alike.”
“Wings of Glass is an example of fiction at its best! When a well-written story teaches the reader something new and valuable . . . that’s what I consider an amazing fiction experience.”

“Wings of Glass is a powerful, can’t-put-down novel, so real it reads like a memoir.”
Liz Curtis Higgs, New York Times bestselling author of Mine is the Night
“We have to journey with Penny through the ugliness of abuse in order to see how beautiful her life will become when she’s transformed into the woman God longs for her to be. Like all of Gina’s characters, these women are so richly crafted that you find yourself sorry to have to part with them when you reach the end of the book.”
Rachel McRae, from A Novel Bookshelf: A LifeWay Fiction Community blog
