Litfuse Review: Keturah by:Lisa T. Bergen

 Keturah (The Sugar Baron's Daughters, #1)
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 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?


My Review:
 There's nothing ever humdrum and boring in any of  Lisa T. Bergen writings, at least I have never found any. Lady Keturah Banning Tomlinson and her sisters find themselves in an irony of sorts when they have to rush to a foreign land to discover and declare what has been left to them. It seems like a simple feat but this trek will be anything but simple. 

 So these ladies have their work cut out for them. Women are not created equal at this time so for them to declare anything is going to come at a cost. I loved the story of these brave women and all they had to conquer in order to retrieve what was rightfully theirs. God's hand was definitely on them and I was hoping it was all along the way. The things they encounter while on their journey was not for the faint of heart. Here's to brave women everywhere!

A true heroine's story from the start with a little of God mixed in. Loved it!
