Keturah:The Sugar Baron's Daughters Book 1 By Lisa Tawn Bergren

I received this book from Litfuse Publicity for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own.

Book Description: 

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 unconventional, 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 sugar plantations are in decline–and that’s just the beginning of their education in this harsh and unfamiliar world.
Keturah never intends to put herself a 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 stubborn and guarded heart to God and find the healing and love that awaits her?

My Thoughts: 

Keturah is the first book in Lisa T. Bergren's latest series, The Sugar Baron's Daughters and it is fantastic. I have read a few of Lisa T. Bergren's books and this one has to be my favorite! As a huge fan of Christian Historical Fiction this book definitely caught my attention. I absolutely fell in love with the cover, really giving life to this book. Lisa T. Bergren writes with authority about our world in 1772 especially England and The Caribbean, sugar plantations, keeping up all aspects of a plantation, and finding a way in a male dominated world.  I absolutely love Lisa T. Bergren's style of writing, she puts her readers right there in the story experiencing life as the other characters are. She writes strong characters that people can relate to. I have to say my favorite character is Keturah. The strength she had to care for her family, to ensure they don't lose everything, and her faith that sees her through all of the hardships. She fought for what was theirs and didn't give up. Very inspiring. I found myself unable to put this book down. From start to finish it kept me on the edge of my seat. I cannot say enough good about this book. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Historical Fiction, you will not be disappointed. I cannot wait to read more in this series.
 I give this book 5 STARS.
