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?
I have never read anything by Lisa but I have heard good things about her writing. It is all true.
She has written a well-crafted book full of interesting characters and an engaging plot.
Although, not overly fast-paced I found I was taking an easy stroll through this book, but there was still enough going on that I was interested and wanted to keep reading.
Also, I just need to mention what a beautiful cover this book has.
Historical romance lovers won’t be disappointed.

Wonderful review, Melissa!
I have read most of her River of Time series and being that I am sure this one will not disappoint as I can’t wait to finish that series. I have read the first 3 books in case anyone was wondering.
