Review of "Wings of Glass" by Gina Holmes

What a beautiful book.  Gina Holmes' novel, "Wings of Glass" is a must read for women everywhere.  If it isn't 'your' story, bet you know someone....

Penny's marriage to Trent at first seems like a dream come true for the small town girl, but it quickly turns to a nightmare when he becomes abusive.  She can do nothing right and soon learns to walk on eggshells and not rock the boat.  When Trent is injured at work and must take time off, he 'permits' her to get a job; her co-workers become her friends and stick by her through it all.

The entire book is written as a letter to their son, in hopes that he will understand when he is older, not only why his dad is not around but how much his mother went through.  This is one of the first books I've read on this topic where I truly understood how conflicting the abused person must be...Applause to Gina Holmes for such a powerful and poignant novel.
