Jedediah Reed, a young Methodist preacher with a call to serve the slaves of Nevis, has settled at Selah's family's

What a fantastic finale to an epic saga of three sisters from Britain making their way on the Island of Nevis as sugar plantation owners in the 1770s! The Sugar Barons Daughters series should be read in order since there are multiple subplots within each book that extend into the next story. This last book ties in so many themes from the previous two books like slavery, prejudice and hatred simply because of gender, race, color, and religion, bitterness and desire for revenge, Christian ...more

Lisa T. Bergrens Sugar Barons Daughters series comes to a strong close as the Banning sisters not only continue their struggle to keep their plantation profitable in the face of local prejudice but also become more deeply enmeshed in the plight of the slaves on Nevis and the cause of the patriots in the Revolutionary War. There was a bit of everything here, reallyromance, suspense, espionage, smuggling, and moreand the addition of a Methodist preacher at a time when Methodist theology was ...more

So, if we are to put our lives in our faithful Fathers hands, we relinquish fretting and fear. We trust what comes, as his will, knowing that he remains with us through it all . . . And in time, in time, even if tis not until the day we leave this earth and enter eternity, twill all be made right. We can rest in what is today.
What a beautiful way of looking at trials and struggles which might come our way. This is just one of the wonderful quotes I got from this book. I was touched deeply by

A touching story

Selah's love and care for the slaves on Nevis caused her to propose revolutionary changes, which led to their family being ostracized. She spent time helping the slaves and freedmen on their plantation to learn about the Lord and to better their lot in life. She had a kind heart and was strong enough to stand up for herself, which she had to do more than once!

Jedediah was a Methodist pastor who had been called by the Lord to minister to the slaves. I loved his humble attitude and

Selah Banning, the youngest daughter of a Nevis Island sugar baron, lives with her eldest sister, Keturah, and her brother-in-law Gray Covington on a sugar plantation in the West Indies. Unlike the surrounding plantation owners, the Bannings and Covingtons acknowledge the inherent evil in the slave system and have a plan to eventually emancipate their slaves. Which makes them social pariahs amongst the island gentryand the sworn enemy of Councilman Angus Schubert.

Once again, Lisa T. Bergren has crafted an intriguing, heartfelt story full of strong relationships and enough action to keep the story moving forward. While this book focuses on the love brewing between Selah and Jedidah, it's much more than another romance story. Lisa's stories focus on life: the ups and downs, the good and bad, and all the relationships that come with it. The romance is just one aspect of a whole. This story also focuses on the strong bond between the three Banning sisters ...more

It was the falcons piercing cry that first alerted Selah. She shielded her eyes against the bright, tropical morning sun and followed the broad wingspan of the beautiful bird circling above. - Opening lines of Selah by Lisa T. Bergren

Selah, by Lisa T. Bergren, is the third in the sugar barons daughters series and continues where Verity leaves off. Whilst a story in and of itself, I highly recommend reading this series in order to fully appreciate the journey. When I read Keturah, it was my

A wonderful story of how God weaves people's paths together for his glory and for the good of his children.
Lisa Bregan leads us into the world of slave trade, freedom for the slaves, espionage and those who fought to birth a new world.

My heart soared while reading this book. It wasn't just about the history but the story, the characters drew me and captivated me. The Heroine Selah was one of the most brave, bold and courageous female character I have ever read about and to think of the many

"Selah" is a Christian romance set in 1776 in Nevis, West Indies. This is the third book in a series, and it continues the story of all three sisters. It focused on Selah's romance and could be read as a standalone, but you'll probably get more out of the story if you read the series in order. This book did spoil critical events in the previous books.

Selah was caring, courageous, and willing to sacrifice for others. Selah and Jedediah shared interests and cared about how the slaves were treated.

I really enjoyed Selah, the final book in Bergrens Sugar Barons Daughters series. I read the first two and they were also very good. Although I am partial to the first book Keturah, the eldest of the three Banning sisters. This book could be read as a stand alone, but I think you would love the other two and have a better understanding of the characters in this one. Bergren series is so rich in history, taking in the affect the Revolutionary War in the US had on the West Indies. I loved reading ...more

Selah is rich historical fiction full of adventure and romance. The pictures of true love and sacrifice are incredibly moving. Although this book can be read by itself, Selah is a marvelous climax of this series. There is a wonderful balance of previously well developed characters, as well as, a new focus on Selah and Jedediah. Their romance is wonderfully written with both tension and touching moments. The storyline of this family continues to be interesting especially with Americans striving ...more

For fans of historical romance with some suspense thrown in, this final installment of the Sugar Baron's Daughters is an enjoyable read. I'll admit, I haven't read the first two books, but that didn't detract from the story for me--although, I think reading them in order would provide an even better experience. The story continues to deal with the moral issue of slavery in the colonial era. How much are you willing to risk for what you know is right?

Wonderfully written ending to a beautiful story of three brave and strong spirited sisters! Many great reviews to read, so I will keep it short! Worth your time to read and enjoy! The descriptions are so well written you almost feel the trade winds blowing across while you read. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Selah, and love how Lisa wove deep faith in the story, very inspiring without being preachy. Real!

Beautifully written story about Selah, the youngest of three sisters and her growing friendship with Jedediah Reed, the minister that has come to work on the plantation.. This is the third book in the "Sugar Baron's Daughters" series. It helps if you have read the first two books, but this can be read as a standalone novel.. Espionage, evil neighbors, an uprising from the slaves, it's all in this book. A real page turner! I loved it! Excellent story telling!

Selahs story

I am so glad to finally read this entire story. Selahs boldness in the face of a horrible situation convicts me. Will I choose to do the right thing even when it will result in danger? I love how the Lord provided for these people as they boldly stood for Him, for what was right. Very well done!
