First Line Friday: Crossing Oceans by Gina Holmes

First Line Friday: Crossing Oceans by Gina Holmes

“Nothing deepens a stream like a good rain . . . or makes it harder to cross.” 

Have you read this book? I stumbled across it while browsing the shelves at Baker Book house.  I am excited to dive into this story and find out what happens. Happy reading!- Becca


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.

    With his legs dangling forty-five feet above the floor of the indoor climbing gym and less than ten feet to go till he reached the top, Jack wasn’t about to stop now.

    Happy Friday! The book I shared on my blog today is The Whistle Walk by Stephenia H McGee but it’s also my current read so I’ll share the first line from chapter 9 here: “Charles’s cousin slapped him on the shoulder, sending his mug of ale sloshing over the rim and into his dinner.” Happy Reading! 🙂
