あらすじ・解説

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?

Conflicted

We live in such a time of political correctness that it is surprising to find a Christian book that doesn't portray the heroine as someone who single-handedly overturns the institution of slavery in the 1700's (while still legal, even in England). Instead, you find a more realistic look at someone who continues to run a plantation in the way it was handed to her. "Keturah" is a book where the over-riding message isn't the one we've come to expect, the one of social justice. Instead, the main characters are just really kind the slaves that they own and purchase. Yes, it is very uncomfortable for me to read about a Christian woman purchasing slaves. However, it was refreshing to have an author NOT trying to feed us the message we want to read with our modern viewpoint. I squirmed, but engaged with the characters who were probably much more realistic for the time period than what most writers dare to portray. I was also not comfortable reading about the abuse Keturah suffered in her first marriage, but again, probably very realistic. This was a sweet story of letting go of bitterness and making the best of the hand that is dealt you. I enjoyed listening to a story about life on a sugar plantation!

Beautiful Story with Strong Characters

In honesty it took me about 20 minutes into the book to get use to the narrator's voice. Once I did, however, I was swept away in this story.

Loved it!

The research and history that went through this book was great! I believe the struggles for many slave owners was real as they battled for their people’s freedom and honor.

A lot of story but little romance

the story was kinda good not great Keturah the main character is too impulsive and unpleasant a times
Gray and Keturah are attractive to each other but Gray is a beta Male so nothing will happen not doing much
the author tries to be sensitive to the slaves but she went overboard no white lady in the 21st century would do what Selah did for that slave girl them all fussing over them and working on the plantation is unbelievable all in all nothing really happens if not for the slaves workers and the wicked foreman the book would be long and boring

I love Lisa T Bergren

I love how the author can spin a story. So many Christian books are so gushy romantic that they are disgusting. Lisa T Bergren’s books have just enough romance to add flavor to the whole story.
I liked the narrator mainly. Her Southern accent was a little over the top but I imagine that it’s hard to do a Victorian British accent and a Southern accent from the Carolinas.

Will not continue

Overall, this story was interesting and I enjoyed the characters and the exotic time and location. I can understand that slavery was practiced by Christians who sought to treat their slaves fairly; however, I hated listening to a book where slavery is condoned. I really get into the head of the main character when I am listening to a good book, and I hated being inside of the head of someone who was a good person who had slaves to earn money and turned a blind eye to the brutalities of slavery around her. Today there are injustices going on around us that in general we turn a blind eye to or ignore because it feels like too big of a problem for us and in the end, we benefit from it (like wearing clothing without checking to see if it was made by child labor) so I don't think it is wise to fill ones head with anything that makes it any easier to puff yourself up as a white person or to benefit from the unfair labor of another.
