"'No Ocean too Wide'" is a compelling story of the McAlister family, tragically caught up in the British Home Child immigration schemes. The author, with her impressive attention to the historical facts of these programs, woven together with the trials and tribulations of Laura, Grace, Katie and Garth, make this book not only one of the most enjoyable BHC books I have read to date, but also an important historical lesson for her readers."
"'No Ocean Too Wide'" is Carrie Turansky at her finest, as she weaves rich historical details and engaging characters with the heart-wrenching complexities surrounding the emigration of British Home Children in the early 1900s. I thoroughly enjoyed this glimpse into English and Canadian history, with its echoes of the trials faced by orphans in books such as Anne of Green Gables, and the strong message of faith and trust in the Heavenly Father who never abandons us."
“’No Ocean Too Wide’ is a fine example of a historical novel performing one of its most important functions: bringing to life, honoring, and preserving a piece of history that might otherwise go forgotten. Turansky’s novel is sure to capture readers with the heartache and hope entwining the McAllister family’s story. Those interested in America’s Orphan Trains will not want to miss this fresh new tale about the British Home Children.”
“Courageous characters and a riveting plot reveal an intriguing segment of little known British and Canadian history—the plight of British Home Children sent to Canada, with or without their parents’ permission—in Carrie Turansky’s ‘No Ocean Too Wide’. I will not forget this beautifully written and inspiring story of faith, friendship, family love and devotion. A perfect treasure of a book.”
