Keturah

Keturah is the first in Lisa T Bergren’s newest series, The Sugar Baron’s Daughters. Set in the the late 1700s England, this novel follows the journey of the Banning sisters as they set out to save their inheritance.

Keturah, Verita, and Selah make the decision to travel across the Atlantic to the West Indies to save their late father’s sugar plantation. In doing so, they defy the conventions of their day and face grave dangers in a world where women, even noble women, are seen as second class citizens.

This fact is well known by the eldest of the three, Keturah, whose abusive husband has recently died. Keturah tells her story–a story of love redeemed. When Ket arrives on the island, she finds many surprises and an entire island set full against her and her sisters. As she faces the daunting task ahead of her and the evil determined to keep her in her place, Ket also finds healing and love through the faithfulness of an old childhood friend.

I couldn’t put this book down. Keturah’s story is heart-wrenching and yet highlights the grace and love of God. I can’t wait to read more about this family of sisters.
