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:  What a unique spin on a historical fiction novel. I love that it is set in the Caribbean in the 1700's. So, that for me was a different place to journey to for this story. "Keturah" is book 1 in "The Sugar Baron's Daughter's" series by Lisa T. Bergren.
The book begins in England with Lady Keturah & her sisters. They discover that they have inherited their father's estates in the West Indies. They go there to seek out what is now theirs.
Of course during that period in time, women didn't do things on their own, but they defy the odds. It seems that there is more than they bargained for on the islands. For Keturah, she has in influx of men trying to gain her attention. But she lacks trust in them. Are they truly wanting her or her fortune? Even when an old friend arrives, she struggles with knowing who to trust.
This is a story of trails & trust. Allowing your guard down so that you can receive the goodness that the Lord has to offer. I really enjoyed Lisa Y. Bergren's writing!

I received this book from Litfuse for my honest review.
