Keturah (#01 in Sugar Baron's Daughters Series)

Lisa Tawn Bergren
Also Available In
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?

Interesting idea
4 stars By Nicole, Aug 01 2018
I enjoy Lisa T Bergren's novels and this was an interesting one, if a bit unlikely. Three sisters set off for the danger-filled Caribbean to bring their father's plantation back from the brink of failure. I enjoyed a lot of the setting of the story, particularly the trip from England and all the difficulties of travel at that time. It was also interesting to see how Bergren handled the subject of slavery and the status of women in that society. I did struggle, however, with the girls being allowed to go on this adventure at all - particularly unchaperoned - and that they would even think to wear pants in that era, much less be accepted by even the people they were helping if they did. But the plot line kept me reading despite those issues. It's clear from reading this first in the series that she plans to follow the other two sisters' stories in each of the subsequent novels.
