Review of No Ocean Too Wide by Carrie Turansky

No Ocean Too Wide (McAlister Family #1)No Ocean Too Wide by Carrie Turansky
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Can you imagine being a little seven-year-old girl and wondering when you will see your mommy again? How about fourteen-year-old twins who are separated from each other and feel like they are missing half of themselves? What does a young woman do when she discovers that her two younger sisters and brother have been sent to another country and now appear to be lost to her? These are the situations that the four siblings of the McAlister family encounter in No Ocean Too Wide and it is a story that will remain with you long after you've finished reading it.

This is a sad story but it is also a story of hope, faith, and determination. The McAlister's and Andrew Fraser were all believers and even though there were times when they wondered why God was allowing this to happen, they still believed in the power of prayer.

Even though this book is set in 1909 it will surely cause today's readers to think about the children who are currently in foster care or awaiting adoption. I recommend No Ocean Too Wide to anyone who enjoys historical Christian fiction and I am looking forward to the next book of the McAlister Family series to learn if this family can finally be reunited!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and I was under no obligation to write a positive review. These are my own opinions.
