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?

"Keturah" is book #1 in Lisa T. Bergren's newest series The Sugar Baron's Daughters and it is a great start to the series! Keturah is determined that she along with her two sisters can and will maintain and take control of what was left to them by their father. This means traveling to an island in the West Indies, which would be a big deal except for the fact that they are three single young females. Keturah is not afraid to stand up for herself and she has promised herself that she can and will take care of herself and not be "owned" or controlled by a man again. Gray, who was once friends with Keturah long ago during their childhood, is on the same ship and although Keturah is determined she can handle it, she may not be quite prepared for all that awaits and Gray's presence may be more welcome and needed than she would think or want.
Lisa has done an incredible job with setting the scene and bringing this time period to life in the book. I felt as if I was transported back in time and a part of the story traveling by Keturah's side (not to help her of course as she is quite capable!). I really enjoyed this book and being introduced to the characters and their current situations and what has brought them to this stage in their lives. I am looking forward to reading book #2!
