No Journey Too Far

By Carrie Turansky


A family long divided, a mysterious trunk, and a desperate journey across the ocean—all in the name of love. The epic saga of the McAlisters continues in this riveting sequel to No Ocean Too Wide.

In 1909, Grace McAlister set sail for Canada as one of the thousands of British Home Children taken from their families and their homeland. Though she is fortunate enough to be adopted by wealthy parents, the secrets of her past are kept hidden for ten years until someone from her long-buried childhood arrives on her doorstep. With this new connection to her birth family, will she be brave enough to leave her sheltered life in Toronto and uncover the truth?

After enduring hardship as an indentured British Home Child, Garth McAlister left Canada to serve in World War I. His sweetheart, Emma Lafferty, promised to wait for his return, but after three long years apart, her letters suddenly stopped. When Garth arrives home from the war to unexpected news, he is determined to return to Canada once more on a daunting mission to find the two women he refuses to abandon—his long-lost sister and his mysteriously missing sweetheart.

Book Takeaway:

Readers will be encouraged to see how God can bring good out of difficult situations and inspired to help families in crisis.

Why the author wrote this book:

No Journey Too Far is the sequel to No Ocean Too Wide and tells the rest of the story for the McAlister siblings who were separated and sent from England to Canada as British Home Children. I wanted to honor the memory of the more than 100,000 children who came to Canada in this way. Many suffered neglect and abuse, but most went on to build productive lives in spite of their hardships. It's a heartwarming story of hope and faith.
