The Highest of Hopes (Canadian Crossings, #2) by Susan Anne Mason






After her beloved grandfather's death, Emmaline Moore is shocked to discover that her "deceased" father is actually living in Canada. Having no other family, Emma decides she must find him, and so embarks on a journey across the ocean, accompanied by her best friend, Jonathan. Unfortunately, Randall Moore and his well-to-do family aren't thrilled by her arrival, fearing her sudden appearance will hinder his chance at becoming mayor of Toronto in 1919. Despite everything, Emma remains determined to earn their affection.

Jonathan Rowe has secretly loved Emma for years and hopes that during their trip he can win her heart. Concerned that Randall might reject her, Jonathan is ready to console Emma and bring her home. When she informs him that she has no intention of returning to England, Jonathan begins to despair. Can he convince Emma to find value within herself rather than seeking it from a virtual stranger? And will she ever come to see that Jonathan is her true home?

About The Author





have always loved to write. As a teen, I wrote my first novel, only to be politely rejected by my publisher of choice.

Life got in the way – university, marriage and children became the priority. Then once I had time to start reading again, the writing bug bit once more.
I enjoy writing both contemporary and historical Inspirational romances. “Romance sprinkled with faith” describes my writing style. I love themes of forgiveness and redemption!
I am a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers (ACFW) and the Romance Writers of America. My association with such amazing groups of people has been the biggest asset toward learning my craft.
Home for me is Brampton, Ontario, Canada (near Toronto), where I live with my husband, our two children and two cats. My day job is a part-time secretary at a local church. In my spare time, I like to read and research our family history online.

My Review


This book pulled me in and didn’t let go, trying to place myself in the shoes of these character’s Emmeline and Jonathan, and their love story.
I can’t imagine the pain Emmeline receives as she goes to meet her father, one has to remember that this is a different time and place, a period of rebirth right after the Great War.
Also, as we walk with Jonathan and see what a hard time he seems to be having both in his war experience and what seems to be his unrequited love of Emmeline.
This becomes a real page turner as we want to know how everything ends, but then I really wanted to spend more time immersed in this book.
Now not so patiently waiting for the next in the Canadian Crossing Stories.

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Bethany House, and was not required to give a positive review.
