Launch Week for No Journey Too Far

by | Jun 7, 2021 | Uncategorized, Giveaways, My Books | 8 comments

Hi Friends, It’s launch week for No Journey Too Far, and I want to invite you to join the celebration! Read on to learn about times we can connect and some special giveaways! June 8 is the official release day, and I’ve heard the book is already available in many stores. Visit my book page for easy order links to purchase your copy.

It’s been almost two years since the release of No Ocean Too Wide. That book focused on what happened to Garth, Katie, and Grace McAlister when they were taken away from England and sent to  Canada as British Home Children. Their sister, Laura, was determined to follow them across the Atlantic, find her siblings, and reunite the family. That book concludes with Grace missing and Garth legally bound to finish his indentured contract in Canada.

I intended to tell the rest of the story in the second book, No Ocean Too Wide, that was scheduled to release in 2020. But in February 2019 I received a colon cancer diagnosis, and that made writing very difficult. So the book was delayed while I took several months off to rest and recover from surgery and chemo treatments. I’m grateful to be doing well, and I’ve had clear checkups since then. I’m sure you can see why the release of this book is especially meaningful to me.

So . . . let the celebration begin! I’d love to connect with you and share more about the story behind No Journey Too Far. It’s set ten years after No Ocean Too Wide and focuses on the challenges and experiences the McAlister siblings and their friends face as they finished their indentured contracts and set out on their own.
