SDC: How do you make faith, love, and hope work together in your stories?
Gina: Man, you ask tough questions. Let me drink some more coffee and think about this … (Gina slurps, spills some on her shirt, tries to clean it off and makes it worse… okay, I’m back.)
Crossing Oceans--Sometimes love demands the impossible
Nothing deepens a stream like a good rain . . . or makes it harder to cross.Jenny Lucas swore she’d never go home again. But life has a way of upending even the best-laid plans. Now, years after she left, she and her five-year-old daughter 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 to change everything—to heal old hurts, to bring new beginnings . . . even to overcome the impossible.
