DRIFTWOOD TIDES by Gina Holmes


Gina Holmes is the bestselling author of Crossing Oceans, a Christy and Christian Book Award finalist and Carol Award winner, and Dry as Rain, also a Christy Award finalist. She is the founder of the influential literary site Novel Rocket, regularly named one of Writer’s Digest top sites for writers. Gina lives with her husband and children in southern Virginia. Visit her online at www.ginaholmes.com.





From the book’s back cover:

He made himself an island until something unexpected washed ashore.



Driftwood Tides
When Holton lost his wife, Adele, in a horrific accident, he shut himself off from the world, living a life of seclusion, making driftwood sculptures and drowning his pain in gin. Until twenty-three-year-old Libby knocks on his door, asking for a job and claiming to be a friend of his late wife. When he discovers Libby is actually Adele’s illegitimate daughter, given up for adoption without his knowledge, his life is turned upside down as he struggles to accept that the wife he’d considered a saint was not the woman he thought he knew.


Together Holton and Libby form an unlikely bond as the two struggle to learn the identity of Libby’s father and the truth about Adele, themselves, and each other.


From Jo:


Libby Slater wades through one problem after another on her search for truth. I love the way Gina Holmes weaves the continual layers of characters that affect Libby’s opinions of situations and of herself. Setting is so much a part of this story, you can feel the ocean breeze on your face and feel the sand beneath your feet. Interesting and insightful.



The winner of last Thursday’s blog post for a copy of In Perfect Time by Sarah Sundin is Linda R. I’ll email you. Thanks all for commenting. Watch for more book giveaways.



Till next time … keep on smiling.

  1. Hi, Jo. Having read the back cover blurb info., this sentence alone sealed the deal for me: "Setting is so much a part of this story, you can feel the ocean breeze on your face and feel the sand beneath your feet." Awesome. I'd love to win a copy of Gina's book--whether paperback or e-book. Thanks for extending the opportunity to enter the giveaway. Blessings!

  12. First of all, I just love Novel Rocket. I have learned so much from the posts there for writing. I had no idea that Gina was the founder. Love her more now. I imagine this would be a compelling read. Finding the truth out can be a blessing and also a curse. It is all in how you apply it. Please enter me!
