Keturah Book Review

The following is a review of Keturah from Litfuse Publicity. 

Lisa T. Bergren's newest book Keturah is set back in time in 1792 and takes place first in England then the West Indies. 

Though classified historical fiction, the historic parts were not just facts but instead the authors note summed it up as "I've done my best to depict life the way I imagined it." The main part of the story takes place at a plantation inherited by three young ladies after their father died. The slave trade is a big part of the story, but it wraps up in such a way that made me think fairytale, all too happily ever after to be believable. There were a few loose strings, which surely will be visited in future books as this is the first in a series. 

About the story: 
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?
