To Honor and Trust (Book Review)
|To Honor and Trust (Bridal Veil Island)|
From the back cover:
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?
To Honor and Trust is the second book that I have read by Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller. (The first was To Love and Cherish, which I reviewed here. ) I was delightfully surprised by this story.
The main characters Callie and Wesley are both very likable, even if a little naive. They play off of each other well and off their respective circumstances. The story line kept me engaged with just the right amount of humor (including the new nanny Maude), mystery (theft of jewelry and accusations of thievery), action (the daughter getting bit by a deadly spider) and with love and craziness that you come to expect when children are involved.
I felt that the story flowed beautifully and left you wanting to read more and to get more information on the lives of Wesley and Callie. And there was just enough surprises that it left me guessing what would come next.
Overall, this was a very enjoyable read and one that I would highly recommend!
