Book Review: Keturah

A book was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

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 Opinion

What stuck out to me about this book right away was the strong female lead characters! I love how independent, strong and smart these Banning sisters are in this book and I also love the adventure, perseverance and strength that they have as the face setback after setback!

I also love learning about the West Indies back in the 1700's when they were used for growing sugar. Lisa T. Bergren does such an amazing job painting the era and giving the reader such a vivid picture through words!

As always, Bergren comes through with a book that I didn't want to put down and didn't want to end! I can't wait for more!
