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?

Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller bring their Bridal Veil Island series to a satisfying end with To Honor and Trust. I have really enjoyed this entire series. (Click the titles to read my reviews of To Have and to Hold and To Love and Cherish.) Each of the books stands alone, but they are connected by their setting. This final novel may be my favorite. While I'm so glad I didn't have to experience the snobbery and class distinctions between the wealthy and the working class of that era, it's always fun to read about - especially when love and romance ignore those carefully drawn boundaries! The mystery woven into this story adds to the tension, as do the struggles of faith and family dynamics, a reminder that some issues are timeless no matter the century! Kudos to the authors for another highly recommended novel and series!
