To Honor and Trust is the third book in the Bridal Veil Island series, I haven’t read the first two books in this series, but each individual book was written as a stand-alone by the authors.
Callie Deboyer has been a tutor of the Bridgeport’s children for many years. She has enjoyed her time with the family where she is treated more like a family member than an employee and dearly loves the children. She wonders, though, if she should stay with the Bridgeport’s or choose to accept a teaching job offered at Hull House in Chicago, or to join her parents as a missionary in Africa.
Wesley Townsend, the son of a wealthy Massachusetts textile mill owner wants to escape the pressures placed on him by his family and society. His father has mapped out his future, a future he doesn’t desire. While hoping to distance himself from his overbearing family, Wesley volunteers to act as club golf pro in place of the missing instructor.
When Wesley and Callie meet they are immediately drawn to each other. How will Callie feel when she discovers the truth about Wesley's background? What will Wesley think when Callie is held as a suspect during a robbery investigation? Will he walk away believing her guilty, or will he fight to prove her innocent?
Fans of Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller will find much to hold their attention as they read To Honor and Trust- -from the interesting characters to the budding romance between Callie and Wes to the mystery surrounding the missing jewels, you’ll not want to put this one down.
About the Book:
Come home to magnificent Bridal Veil Island resort!
Bridal Veil Island, Georgia 1913
Callie Deboyer arrives at Bridal Veil Island to spend the winter working as a governess for the Bridgeport family. However, she finds she can't fully enjoy the beautiful resort because questions about her future weigh heavily on her mind: Should she continue in this job she enjoys, or is God calling her to join her parents in their missionary work?
When she enrolls young Thomas Bridgeport in golf lessons, Callie meets instructor Wesley Townsend, who urges Callie to take lessons, as well. During their time together, Callie comes to care for Wes--until she discovers that he's been hiding something very important from her.
Then expensive pieces go missing from various homes around the island, and suspicion is aimed in Callie's direction. Callie wonders if this is a sign she should leave it all behind and join her parents in Africa. Considering Wesley's deceit, will he ever be a man Callie can honor and trust for the rest of her life?
