    To Honor and Trust is a historical romance which takes readers into the lives of both the wealthy and the working class of people in 1913. The setting, an integral part of the story, is a winter resort for affluent families.

    I was very interested in reading this book, as I love the weather and romance of the islands along the Eastern coast and I have a keen interest in the history of the early 20th century. This Bridal Veil Island novel more than lived up to my anticipation.

    The contrast of expectations and outlook between those who are moneyed and those employed by them was what I enjoyed the most in the story. Callie Deboyer is the one person who is able to bridge the gap between the classes, as she grew up in a privileged home, but is now the private teacher to the Bridgeport family.

    The story follows the lives of Callie and Wesley Townsend as they struggle with important decisions. Should grown children acquiesce to their parents' expectations? Where should people draw the line of loyalty to family and friends? Is God really interested in our day to day living? How do we choose between living a life of material wealth and a life that might be more personally fulfilling? Is it safe to trust again, when you've found disappointment and hurt in a past relationship?

    There is also a bit of mystery in the book—missing people and missing jewelry—which adds intrigue to the story.

    I enjoyed To Honor and Trust. I felt very satisfied upon finishing the book. I was happy things worked out as they did.

    Callie Deboyer is employed by the Bridgeport family as a tutor for their children. She is spending the winter at Bridal Veil Island with the family and should have plenty of time to enjoy herself. Her goal: make some decisions about her future. Mrs. Bridgeport's goal: find a husband for Callie. The problem: Callie doesn't want a husband.

    Since Callie's fiance left her to marry another woman, she has found it difficult to trust men and has decided she is better off without one. Besides, she has far too much to think about this winter without a man to complicate things. While she is happy as a tutor to the Bridgeport family, she has been offered a teaching position in Chicago and her parents, missionaries in Africa, would also like her to join them. She is praying about what God wants her to do, but hasn't yet found clarity.

    Mrs. Bridgeport has arranged for her son, Thomas and Callie to participate in tennis and golf lessons for the season. Callie enjoys spending time with the unpretentious golf instructor and he readily joins her and the children on various outings. They grow to care for each other, but when Callie discovers that Wesley has been deceiving her, will she be able to forgive him?

    Wesley has a few problems of his own. His hard-to-please father has his own list of expectations for Wesley's life, but they hardly match Wesley's aspirations. Will they be able to resolve their issues or will there forever be tension between them? What is Wesley supposed to be doing with his life? Has he wasted his education and his father's investments?

    Mrs. Murphy, the unkempt new employee arrives at the Bridgeport residence and assumes her responsibilities as nanny. She seems kind enough, but her puzzling displays of strange behavior have left Callie with a little concern. Can Mrs. Murphy be trusted? Her recommendation from a family friend was glowing, but her demeanor hardly seems the sort Mrs. Winslow would have allowed in her home.

    When the families on the island begin to find themselves the victims of a string of burglaries and thefts, the indulgent atmosphere quickly changes to one of alarm. Who is behind the robberies? Will Callie be able to clear her name as suspicion is placed on her?

    I thoroughly enjoyed and wholeheartedly recommend this book by Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller. The characters are engaging and the storyline kept my interest well into the evening. Not once did I find myself skipping ahead. The historical setting was easy to picture. The dialogue was clever and realistic and Callie's relationship with Wesley kept me hoping they would resolve their issues and find their happy ending. A truly enjoyable read!

    This is the 3rd book in a series. I have the first one and then saw the 2nd & 3rd at Christianbooks.com. All three books are excellent. Each deals with different characters, but in the same location, Bridal Veil Island. I highly recommend ANYTHING that Tracie Peterson writes and this series was great!

    Once again, I am blessed to be able to give you a review in exchange for a free book - I just can't help myself!!!! This time Bethany House sent me the book To Honor and Trust by Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller. I really can't turn away anything written by Tracie Peterson and she does a great job teaming up once again with Judith Miller. This is the third book in the Bridal Veil Island series and I enjoyed it very much. Set again at the fictional retreat island of Bridal Veil off the coast of Georgia in 1913, we meet Callie Deboyer who comes from a well-to-do family, but is now joining the Bridgeport family as their governess as they spend the winter on the island. While she loves her job and the Bridgeport family, she keeps thinking that something is missing in her life and that God is calling her to a higher purpose, one that possibly would include joining her parents on the missionary field of Africa. As Callie enjoys the island for the first time, Wesley Townsend comes to the island as well. He comes with his extremely wealthy family who is trying to convince Wesley to join the family business and leave practicing medicine behind. While Wesley is trying to decide which direction to take in his life, he volunteers to teach golf lessons. It is here that his path crosses with Callie's. As the book progresses, Callie and Wes grow to care for each other, but neither as entirely honest with the other about their past as well as what the future holds for them. I loved reading about their relationship and seeing it progress as the book continued. One of my favorite parts of the book though was the plot beside the romance - the mystery of expensive pieces disappearing from different homes around the island. The authorities have narrowed it down to several suspects and Callie's names is at the top of the list. Through the book we see Callie struggle with trusting another person, with what her future holds and with trying to clear her name. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a great book.
