Keturah by Lisa T. Bergren

Keturah by Lisa T. Bergren

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?

My review

I enjoyed reading a story that took place in the West Indies. Lisa T. Bergren did a great job with her descriptions and I could clearly see the Islands in my minds eyes. The characters were interesting and believable. I liked most of them in the book.  This book takes place during a time where it was acceptable to own slaves. Lisa T.  Bergren did a good job portraying this time period in a tactful way.   Overall, I thought this was a pretty good book. I had a hard time getting into the story but it was interesting enough that I wanted to find out what happened.  Throughout the story, I could see the Lord’s message of truth, hope, forgiveness and second chances. I think that the reader can learn these truths as well.

I recommend this book to my family and friends.

I received this book from the publisher to read and give my honest opinion.
