Why is it that so many women allow themselves to be
emotionally or physically abused? Do we deserve it? No. But we tend to make
excuses for why the abuse happens, afraid of what life would be like if we
weren’t suffering at the hand of someone we supposedly need and love.
On the other hand, some of us have the Savior mentality.
If we hang in there, maybe we can love him into changing. Can’t he see it in
our eyes? Doesn’t he trust our heart?
And we continue to live the lie.
Gina Holmes writes a compelling story in Wings of Glass. Through telling the
story of Penny “One-Cent” Taylor and her abusive husband, Trent, Gina hits the
nail on the head. Pulling no punches, Gina writes an accurate description of
living under abuse and the dangers women face every day.
Emotional, heart-pounding, and full of expectation, I
couldn’t put it down. I read it in three days’ time, a rare thing for me.
Wings
of Glass
is a story of triumph and overcoming mountains. If you
know a woman who suffers at the hand of an abuser, I highly recommend gifting
her with Gina’s book. Maybe it will encourage her to stand up for herself and
triumph as well.
From the best-selling author of Crossing Oceans, comes a heartrending yet uplifting story of
friendship and redemption. On the cusp of adulthood, eighteen-year-old Penny
Carson 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 find her own.
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

Trees
