Be warned that boxes of tissues will be needed to read this book I don’t know where to start with how deeply emotional this story is The author has exceeded my expectations of how gifted a writer she is The story is one that opened my eyes to the fate of children during a time period that was hard on many peopleI had no idea that children of British descent were shipped away to Canada sometimes without real reason to rip them from their families I am overwhelmed at the cruelty these children were put through I’m sure most children believed they were being adopted into loving and caring homes but that was not always the caseThis story follows Laura as she works away from home to help her family out and how her siblings get caught up in a system that is far dangerous than most people were aware of Laura is beside herself when she learns her siblings have been taken away and will do anything to find them I could feel Laura’s desperation as she travels to Canada to find her siblings Can she find them before tragedy strikes I admired her strength to rescue her siblings and how deeply she cared for their safetyIt was hard to read at times the homes the children were placed in Most of them were treated as servants and had little hope of finding a way to escape their situation The children in this story offers hope to those that think Jesus has forgotten them The author gives us a sense of urgency in seeing that justice prevails and the children are returned to their family I loved Katie Grace and Garth and how they clung to their faith that God would rescue themAndrew is a wonderful character who helps in trying to reunite Laura with her sisters and brother I loved that he never gave up and wanted to help not only Laura and her siblings but other children who had been abused by a system that only wanted financial gain As Andrew and Laura band together there seems to be a little romance brewing between them I liked that the author gives hints of their attraction but doesn’t make it the main theme of the bookChildren are a blessing from God and this story reminds us of how precious that blessing is I sat on the edge of my seat as I drew to the end of the story I was captivated by the emotions and the never ending faith throughout the book I will be adding this book to my top picks for 2019 The author has promised a follow up book to continue this story and I will be anxious to read it Thank you for writing a story that heals wounds reunited families and gives us a look at Gods promise “that He will never leave us nor forsake us”I received an arc copy of this book from the author and publisher The review is my own opinion

No Ocean Too Wide touches on a fascinating yet tragic event in history that of about 70 years in which than 100000 impoverished British children were sent to Canada for a better life Those taking them in were told they were orphans but history has shown that this wasn't always trueIt's wonderful that Turansky chose to tell a story about something that impacted so many people I can't imagine being told that my children or my younger siblings had been sent to across the ocean without my consent or even my knowledge Turansky shows this plight through the perspective of both one of those sent as well as one desperate to bring them homeFor me there was a significant amount of telling rather than showing This is definitely a personal preference of mine as a reader and I'm sure not something that bothered other readers It's just not my preferred style of writing Even so I found this to be an easy story to follow and one in which the characters are easy to root for Laura McAlister has taken a position as a lady's maid in order to send the funds back home to help care for her family The system is unforgiving of families in need and through a series of terrible acts by those uncaring and unwilling to get children back to their families the youngest three McAlisters are sent to Canada and Laura tries her best to get them back Katie McAlister gets the roughest end of the deal with her story line bringing out the harshness of the caregivers that took in the children Though there is a degree of resolution to the story there is yet to be told about the McAlister family and we won't know the full extent of their journey until the next book in the seriesI received an advanced copy of this novel; this review is my honest opinion
