No Journey too far by Carrie Turansky (Book 2 of 2: McAlister Family)


A touching conclusion about a family torn apart by the British Home Children Program.  I have ties to Britain and to Canada so it was quite interesting to read this story.

The McAlister family fought long and hard to be together again.  This book's main characters were siblings: Garth and Grace McAlister.  Both had different upbringings due to their placements but were proud of where they came and fought for the truth.

I loved the twists and turns of the book.  It had a little of everything.  Who could be more romantic and devoted than Garth towards his love, Emma?  Rob, a very close friend of Garth's, carefully lets his guard down to show Grace his true feelings.

I was touched by how people whom were not blood related can and did become family.  This was displayed by so many in this story.  

I truly loved the book.  I left feeling that I was a part of their family.  

Thank you, Carrie Turansky for such a moving story.  It is not one I will easily forget.

I received this book for free from Carrie Turansky's Reading Friends on Facebook to give a honest review.
