About The Book
In 1772 England, Lady Keturah Banning Tomlinson and her sisters find themselves the heiresses of their father’s estates and know they have one option: Go to the West Indies to save what is left of their heritage.
Although it flies against all the conventions, they’re determined to make their own way in the world. But once they arrive in the Caribbean, conventions are the least of their concerns. On the infamous island of Nevis, the sisters discover the legacy of the legendary sugar barons has vastly declined-and that’s just the start of what their eyes are opened to in this harsh and unfamiliar world.
Keturah never intends to put herself at the mercy of a man again, but every man on the island seems to be trying to win her hand and, with it, the ownership of her plantation. She could desperately use an ally, but even an unexpected reunion with a childhood friend leaves her questioning his motives.
To keep her family together and save the plantation that is her last chance at providing for them, can Keturah ever surrender her stubbornness and guarded heart to God and find the healing and love awaiting her?
I will be honest here and tell you that it took me a while to get into. I think, though, it had more to do with the fact I was super sick during the time I tried to read it. But, in the end, I followed through and stuck with it to the last page. I was pleased with what Lisa Bergren brought to the table with this start to a new, captivating, richly detailed series.
This book, despite the difficult start I had, is a 4 star book. Ms. Bergren’s characters are life-like and rich. Her detail to history is amazing and her messages……oh those messages that come straight from the Lord above. I definitely give this book a hats off and recommend it to all readers.
I will be looking forward to the next book in this series and seeing where the Sugar Baron’s next daughter ends up in her life.
