No Ocean Too Wide

By Carrie Turansky


The McAllister family is living on the edge of poverty in London, in 1909. Having lost their father tragically, their mother must scrape by and try to provide for her three younger children, while the oldest daughter Laura works on a large estate more than an hour away. When Edna McAllister falls gravely ill and is hospitalized, fourteen-year-old twins Katie and Garth and seven year-old Grace are forced into a children's home before Laura learns about the unfortunate turn of events in London. With hundreds of British children sailing to Canada, designated as orphans whether true or not, Laura knows the stakes are high, but she determines to resuce her siblings no matter what the cost.

Andrew Fraser, a wealthy young British lawyer and heir to the estate where Laura is in service, discovers that this common practice of emigrating penniless children might not be all that it seems. Together Laura and Andrew form an unlikely partnership. Will they arrive in time? Will their friendship blossom into something more?

Inspired by true events, this moving novel follows Laura as she seeks to reunite her family who, in their darkest hours, must cling to the words from Isaiah: “Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God”.


"A thought-provoking and inspirational book about tragic loss, enduring love, and familial loyalty. A great read for those who love historical fiction!"
