Hi Friends,

I’m excited to share the beautiful new cover design for my next English historical novel, No Ocean Too Wide! I love the fresh color scheme and movement in the design. They are perfect for this story that shares the trials and triumphs of the McAllister siblings when the three youngest are sent from England to Canada as British Home Children, and their oldest sister must follow them there.

Here’s a bit more about the story: When Laura McAllister, a young lady’s maid, learns her three siblings have been taken from their mother and emigrated to Canada without her mother’s knowledge or permission, Laura determines to search for them and reunite the family. But lack of funds and resistance from authorities push her to use a false name and take a position with a child emigration society to gain passage to Canada. Andrew Frasier, a wealthy young lawyer, is surprised to see his mother’s former lady’s maid on board ship escorting a group of child immigrants, especially when she uses a different name. Laura eventually convinces Andrew to help her search for her siblings and uncover the truth about the treatment of British Home Children. Romantic feelings grow between this unlikely couple, and though they have different backgrounds, they share a growing faith and desire to seek justice and relief for the McAllister family and those who are mistreated as British Home Children.

Inspiring and hope-filled, No Ocean Too Wide will touch your heart and lift your spirit. I’m looking forward to sharing it with you when it releases June 25, 2019! It’s available for pre-order at WaterBrook Multnomah and other online retailers. 


Until Next Time – Happy Reading,
