Selah Banning has come of age on the West Indies island of Nevis, shaped by experiences far beyond the typical upbringing of a young British lady in 1776. She never anticipated that the most tumultuous time of her life might await her in the year ahead.
Jedediah Reed, a young Methodist preacher with a call to serve the slaves of Nevis, has settled at Selah’s family’s plantation, the Double T. As Selah’s heart is drawn to the same people, their shared purpose brings them together–despite her guardians’ concern about a romance that promises little security for the future.
While Jedediah’s faith and Selah’s abolitionist leanings lead to changes on the plantation, the Revolutionary War continues to build in the States. With the threat of starvation and the conflict with island mogul Angus Shubert growing ever stronger, the future of the Double T and its people hangs in the balance.
This is a good one. I have enjoyed this series, getting to know each sister and this third book allows you to see all three sisters and where that are at. No worries, though, you can read this as a stand alone.
Selah is a wonderful character. Her desire to follow God’s calling will inspire the reader to listen and be obedient. Jedediah frustrated me at times with his insecurities. I just wanted to shake him and tell him to follow his heart.
