Review of Keturah: Historical Christian Fiction by Lisa T. Bergren

The setting of this book drew me. I like historical fiction, and this one was set in 1772 England and involved a strong willed woman and her determination to go to the West Indies and put her father’s estate in order after his death. That just sounded like the makings of a good read. There’s a giveaway with this one, so keep reading.

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 Thoughts…

As much as I wanted to like this one based on the description, I just didn’t. The characters didn’t really compel me to want to know them. I didn’t find myself in their thoughts very often, so I didn’t feel as if I got to know them. Situations also often were too predictable. All in all, it’s a easy-to-read book, and if you’re looking for a quick Christian historical fiction read, it may be for you.
I give it 3 stars and a G rating for content. You can find Keturah on Amazon here.
