Jocelyn Green, award-winning author of Between Two Shores
"No Ocean Too Wide is a classic story of hope and perseverance for readers of Lisa Wingate, Cathy Gohlke, and Susan Anne Mason. Turansky excavates a little-known history to sew a tender narrative about the inherent desire for place and belonging. Beyond the well-drawn journey and the romantic connection slowly unfurling into deepest love, Turansky encourages the reader to seek the power of Gods forgiveness in the hardest to reach places."
Rachel McMillan, author of Murder in the City of Liberty
"No Ocean Too Wide is a compelling story of the McAlister family, tragically caught up in the British Home Children 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, makes 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."
Lori Oschefski, CEO of the British Home Children Advocacy & Research Association
"If you enjoyed Christina Baker Klines Orphan Train or Lisa Wingates Before We Were Yours, you are sure to love Carrie Turanskys latest, No Ocean Too Wide. A treasure of a book. Not to be missed."
Cathy Gohlke, Christy Awardwinning author of The Medallion and Until We Find Home
"In this heartwarming story about the lengths to which family will go to protect one another, Turansky deftly weaves a tale that combines a sometimes shocking history with a tender romance. This beautiful story will breathe hope into readers hearts."
Roseanna M. White, best-selling author of the Ladies of the Manor and Shadows Over England series
"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."
Carolyn Miller, award-winning author of the Regency Brides historical romance series
