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 for women of the time, they’re determined to make their own way in the world. But once they arrive in the Caribbean, proper gender roles 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 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.
Set on keeping her family together and saving her father’s once-great plantation, can Keturah ever surrender her stubbornness and guarded heart to God and find the healing and love awaiting her?
I can’t say that I liked this book better than Lisa’s River of Time series, but I still did enjoy it. I mean, The River of Time is hard to beat because I love it so much. However, Keturah was very good.
All Lisa T. Bergren fans will definitely enjoy this book. However, I do have to say Keturah’s backstory was slightly confusing. I didn’t really understand what happened to her. Therefore, I didn’t really “feel” for her. I am very excited to read about Verity and Selah. I wish I could talk more about them and what I hope happens to them in the next books, but I can’t without giving anything away.
The cover is interesting! The scenery/background is pretty. I am going to give it 4 stars!
I am going to give this book 4 stars. Although it wasn’t my favorite, I still would recommend it to fans of romance with intrigue. I can’t wait to read the next books in the series to find out what happens to the Sugar Baron’s daughters!
