Hi Friends, No Ocean Too Wide, my latest English historical novel, released just a few weeks ago. Do you have your copy yet? If not, you can order it here.  I’m so pleased with all the great reviews coming in on Amazon and GoodReads! Thanks so much for posting your reviews.

I’ve seen some beautiful images of the book pop up all over social media, and I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the creative ways book reviewers are helping me spread the word on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. These images are works of art!

Please take a look and let me know in the comments which are favorites. 

#1. By Elisabeth at Lis Loves Reading. Look at those cute little suitcases!

#2. Lori Oschefski, the CEO of the British Home Children’s Advocacy and Research Association, created this image with the book on an actual home child’s trunk and included postcards of ships that brought the children.

#3. Anita Strawn de Ojeda created this heart-stirring collage.

  1. Rachel Taylor

    My favorite image is the star done by Shawna from Destiny

  2. Suzanne Sellner

    They are all clever and attractive. I can’t really select a favorite, but I think creating various scenes is a great idea for posting different views on social media to keep a book in the forefront of people’s minds.

    I loved reading the book and am eager for the follow-up to it.

  3. Lila Diller

    They’re all so great! I think my favorites are 5, 8, & 10.

  4. Karen Matlack

    This book really touched me and has me very emotional for the welfare of the orphans and others. But your message of following the Bible gives hope to all readers! I don’t want the book to end, yet I want the happy ending of the family reunited!

  5. Connie Scruggs

    I really like #s 1, 2 and 11. I couldn’t pick just one! They are very beautiful.

  6. Alicia Haney

    They are all beautiful, but my favorite one is #7, have a Great evening. God Bless you.

    My favorites are #2 & #8.
    They all show great creativity. Thanks ladies!

  9. Bev Knudsen

  10. Anne Payne

    These are all creative and lovely but my favorite is #9!!! The soft hues of the teacup and flowers and books is soooo beautiful!! I have made images for books but none as pretty as these.

    I ca’t decide between #3 or #5. They are all gorgeous!
