Waiting on Wednesday
This week’s pick is:
No Ocean Too Wide
RELEASING JUNE 25TH, 2019
In this historical adventure for fans of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, the three youngest McAlister children are taken to Canada as British Home Children without their mother’s knowledge or permission. The oldest McAlister sibling follows them across the Atlantic to search for them and bring them home.
When Laura McAlister, a young lady’s maid, learns her three siblings have been taken from their mother and emigrated to Canada without her mother’s knowledge, Laura determines to search for them and reunite the family. But lack of funds and resistance from authorities push her use a false name and take a position with a child emigration society to gain passage to Canada. Andrew Fraser, a wealthy young lawyer, is surprised to see his mother’s former lady’s maid on board ship escorting a group of child immigrants, especially when she uses a different name. Laura eventually convinces Andrew to help her search for her siblings and uncover the truth about the treatment of British Home Children. Romantic feelings grow between this unlikely couple, and though they have different backgrounds, they share a growing faith and desire to seek justice and relief for the children who are mistreated.
I’ve heard so many amazing things about Carrie Turansky’s books, but so far, I haven’t read any of them. No Ocean Too Wide is definitely going to change that, though. Not only is the cover gorgeous, but the synopsis sounds absolutely amazing and just like a book I would like. I cannot wait to read this one!
