No Journey Too Far (McAlister Family #2) by Carrie Turansky

 


A family long divided, a mysterious trunk, and a desperate journey across the ocean—all in the name of love. The epic saga of the McAlisters continues in this riveting sequel to No Ocean Too Wide.
 
In 1909, Grace McAlister set sail for Canada as one of the thousands of British Home Children taken from their families and their homeland. Though she is fortunate enough to be adopted by wealthy parents, the secrets of her past are kept hidden for ten years until someone from her long-buried childhood arrives on her doorstep. With this new connection to her birth family, will she be brave enough to leave her sheltered life in Toronto and uncover the truth?
 
After enduring hardship as an indentured British Home Child, Garth McAlister left Canada to serve in World War I. His sweetheart, Emma Lafferty, promised to wait for his return, but after three long years apart, her letters suddenly stopped. When Garth arrives home from the war to unexpected news, he is determined to return to Canada once more on a daunting mission to find the two women he refuses to abandon—his long-lost sister and his mysteriously missing sweetheart.

My Review


  I loved being reunited with old friends, and finding a conclusion to the location of lost relatives.

The great war is now over, and Garth and Rob have returned to England and family, and then they will journey to Canada to reunite and find lost loved ones. Of Course, challenges await, and we don't know whom they will be able to find or if they will return to England and their family.

We are given some sweet romance, and reminded of past events, so if you have not read the first book, you shouldn't be lost, but you might want to grab a copy of No Ocean To Wide, it is so good!

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