Product Description

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 plantation, can Keturah ever surrender her stubbornness and guarded heart to God and find the healing and love awaiting her?

    Keturah is another great story by Lisa Tawn Bergren! I have read many of Lisa's books and this one is another excellent one. The story is of three sisters that travel outside their comfort zone and outside the culture norm to run their deceased father's sugar plantation. In this era, women would not have embarked on this kind of journey and definitely not by themselves. The three sisters leave by ship to an island where this plantation is at. They are all alone on the ship except for one gentleman that is also heading out to the island to start his own plantation.

    The story deals with the struggles that the sisters have while on the boat and when they arrive on the island. All the odds are against them, yet they strive forward. I love the courage that is shown among the sisters. Because they have each other, they are stronger. While this book deals with many hard struggles in life, I really enjoyed the story of love between sisters, neighbors, and friends, the courage shown in difficult situations, and the faith to overcome the struggles that were before them. I can't wait to read the next two books in the Sugar Baron's Daughters series! I am looking forward to more great stories by Lisa Tawn Bergren!

    In her new series debut, Lisa T. Bergren introduces readers to the sugar plantations of Indiesspecifically the island of Nevis. Fair warning, reading this book just might make you long for a Caribbean vacation to experience the islands yourself.

    Keturah is bound and determined (some call it tenacity, others call it stubbornness) to save her familys plantation. In the process, she longs to prove her strengthboth to herself and to others.

    Bergren delves into the difficult and ugly realities of the time and placeslavery and abusewhile handling them with care, a delicate balance between the necessities of the time and the different treatment shown to others.

    Amidst the challenges and dark sides of life on Nevis is the promise of second chances. In Keturahs world, those abounda second chance at life, at love, and to become the woman she longs to be.

    Get swept away in the story of Keturah and her sisters as they leave their home in England, travel the seas, and discover the beauty and dangersboth seen and hiddenof life on-island. An epic read that already has me wanting more of the Banning sisters.

    This is fairly bold story, taking on some harsh realities of history and the present day--from slavery to abuse--but also holds onto God's truth and speaks a message of hope.

    I like the balance the author strikes in dealing with slavery--it isn't popular these days to have heroes and heroines that endorse it, but it was a such a part of history that it cannot be ignored, either. In the 1700's, there was no other feasible way to run a sugar plantation; slaves were a necessity, and Keturah and her sisters own some. But the Banning girls see the brutality of slavery and take pains to be fair owners. They even buck the traditions of the island in their willingness to deal with freed slaves.

    Keturah reminded me a bit of Scarlett O'Hara, with all her drive and ambition, that determination to survive and live life on her own terms, but without Scarlett's selfishness and manipulation; while Scarlett was more than willing to turn on her sisters, Keturah will do everything in her power to keep hers safe. She still has some strong prejudices that fit her upbringing (I'm sure some people will find her intolerant), but she still comes far from where she starts. And she comes really far through her relationship with Gray; I appreciate how slow it takes, since Keturah needs time to heal and learn to trust again.

    I found it a well-written and fascinating story. I look forward to Verity and Selah's stories! 4.5 stars!

    Thank you Bethany House and NetGalley for providing a free e-book. I was not required to write a positive review, and all opinions are my own.

    Stellar author, Lisa T. Bergren, whisks the reader away on an exotic journey to the sugar plantations of Nevis Island -- glorious in their rich beauty of swaying green cane and the fragrance of jasmine, mangoes, magnolias, and sea salt on the air. Ms. Bergren is definitely proficient at descriptive imagery as the sights, scents, and sounds of Nevis infiltrated my mind and intoxicated me! Though a bit slow to start with, this novel is definitely one I'm glad I kept reading.

    The romantic tension was oh, so exquisitely painful and the three sisters delightful...with the exception of Keturah, the heroine. I found it so very difficult to like her at all. Until one day she did something so amazing and so human -- she giggled! (gasp!) That's all it took for me to fall in love with her character. I'm easy. lol On a more serious note, Lady Ket evolves so much throughout the novel one can't help but learn to care deeply for her. And Gray. There are no words...well, except for gallant, handsome, and virile perfection come to mind. An intriguing, heartrending novel with a strong thread of redemption, hope, and forgiveness throughout, I highly recommend 'Keturah' and anxiously await the next book in 'The Sugar Baron's Daughters' series!

    Thanks to NetGalley for a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not required to give a favorable one.

    Set on keeping her family together and saving her father's plantation, can Keturah ever surrender her stubbornness and guarded heart to God and find the healing and love awaiting her?

    Overall I found this book to be entertaining. There were spots that were slow and I kept waiting for something to happen. I didn't care for the slave issues. But at the time this story takes place in the Indies it was a very common practice and to not have slaves would have been out of place. It was interesting to see the rise and fall of sugar plantations during their hey day.

    I would recommend this book for a light romantic read with a little mystery thrown in.

    I was given this book by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated in anyway.
