Review: No Journey Too Far by Carrie Turansky

No Journey Too Far was a wonderful conclusion to the McAlister Family series. I enjoyed this story even more than book one! There were four characters who comprise the main roles in this story. Garth, Rob, Grace, and Emma were all British Home Children. They each had their own struggles growing up in various situations and in this story, they were grown, yet there were some very real obstacles to overcome before a happy ending could be found.

It was hard to watch the way Emma was treated once it was known that she was an orphan. The author did a good job of showing the manner in which many people looked down on the British Home Children.

There were two romances that blossomed during the novel and they were the perfect bit of sweetness that kept me eagerly reading to find out what would happen in both Grace and Emma’s lives. I really enjoyed this story.

(4.5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


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.
