No Ocean Too Wide: A Novel | Carrie Turansky
12 posts | 2 read | 7 to read
In this historical adventure for fans of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, the three youngest McAllister children are taken to Canada as British Home Children without their mother's knowledge or permission. The oldest McAllister sibling follows them across the Atlantic to search for them and bring them home. When Laura McAllister, 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 to use a false name and take a position with a child emigration society to gain passage to Canada. Andrew Frasier, 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.

From 1869 to 1939 more than a 100,000 British Children who were impoverished were sent overseas to Canada in hopes that they would have a chance at a better life.

After they tragically lost their Father, The McAlister Family is living on the edge of being in the poorhouse in London in 1908, when the eldest daughter Laura goes to work at an estate an hour away to help provide for her family.

Before reading No Ocean Too Wide I knew nothing about the British Home Children. The overwhelming feeling of hope greeted me on the first page and lasted until the final page. Carrie Turansky created a story with sadness & heartbreak that ended with hope. Lies that were told to support the cause of relocating children were exposed. No Ocean Too Wide told a hopeful story that encouraged me to discover more about these children and their stories.

Took the kids to the zoo ~ even walked to Africa beating the tram which provided a few minutes to read. Of course I could have read more if I had ridden the tram but I really need the exercise.

This is why they call it historical fiction. The author does the research and I learn while being entertained. As more of these situations are brought to light I am reminded that each of us needs to speak up and get involved immediately when we see others being hurt.
