From My Library
Tracie Peterson and Judith Miller have written a wonderful book; in fact, I couldn't put it down.
Here is the synopsis of the book: "Callie DeBoyer is unsettled as she arrives at Bridal Veil Island with the Bridgeport family. She's just received a letter from her parents, missionaries in coastal Africa, stating they are in dire need of more personnel. Should Callie give up her governess job and join her parents in their important work? Is God calling her to the mission field, or does she just want to escape the emotional scars of being jilted by her former beau?
When she enrolls young Thomas Bridgeport in golf lessons, Callie meets Wesley Townsend, who urges Callie to take lessons, as well. During their time at the golf course, Callie comes to care for Wesley--until she discovers hidden secrets about his past.
Then expensive jewels go missing from various homes on the island, and suspicion is aimed in Callie's direction. As the investigation continues, Callie wonders if she should escape it all by going to Africa. After the secrets he kept about his past, will Wesley ever be a man she can honor and trust for the rest of her life? ".
I love historical Christian fiction and this book did not disappoint me, except I wish it didn't end. In fact, I will be on the look out for other books by these authors.
I received this book free from Bethany House for my honest review and was not compensated in any way.
I hope you have a wonderful day today friends! Noreen & Hunter
