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?

This was a good interesting book for me. I liked how the author captured the time and place of the story. The author also did a good job of developing the characters. Of course my favorite was Ketuarh. She was a strong woman and did what she thought she had to keep her family together and save the family plantation. All the little details the author put into this story really made you get a deeper understanding of the things the characters were going through. Such bad things that can happen in such a beautiful place. But in the end it all seemed to come together. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to the next one in this series.
