In author Clare Flynn's A Greater World: A Woman's Journey, the reader is invited into the world of Elizabeth Morton. It's 1920, and Elizabeth's father wants her to move across the world to marry a man she's never met. At first she refuses, but after a series of unfortunate events, she has no choice but to leave for Australia and a future she doesn't want. On the trip, she meets Michael Winterbourne, another unfortunate soul being forced to travel, and they find themselves bonded in ways they couldn't imagine. But their love is doomed, and Elizabeth is forced to marry her betrothed, Jack Kidd, upon her arrival at her new homeland. Michael also marries, but not for love. Will Michael and Elizabeth find the love they so desire? You'll have to read the book to find out.

I very much enjoyed A Greater World: A Woman's Journey. Author Clare Flynn has done a wonderful job in developing characters that her readers will truly relate to, root for, shed tears over, and will still think about long after the book is done. If that's not a hallmark of a wonderful writer, I'm not sure what is. A Greater World would be enjoyed by any reader who loves historical fiction, romance, or just a sweet and captivating story about an interesting time period. I recommend author Clare Flynn's novel, and will certainly be watching to see what she has in store for her readers next!
