Keeping Faith

Orchard Hill Series - Book 4

The Wild Rose Press - 2008

Inspirational Romance

Faith Fielding loved her son, her job, and her boss. Both she and Andrew Thomas had lost their spouses, they each had a child, and they considered each other one of their closest friends. Faith, however, had been in love with Andrew for awhile, and was thrilled when he mentioned that he had promised his daughter he would ask someone on a date.

Then he asked someone else for a date.

Andrew didn't understand what had happened with Faith. They had shared so much over the years, and suddenly she said she was quitting. She gave him a lame excuse of needing a change of scenery, which he didn't buy. There had to be more. There had to be some reason she was leaving him. There had to be some way to change Faith's mind - and he had every intention of doing so.

Keeping Faith was a touching best friends romance that I absolutely adored. Faith had acknowledged her feelings for Andrew long ago, but Andrew simply considered her his best friend. She was the woman he relied on for everything, from work, to deciding who he should ask to date. It was wonderful watching him first flounder with the realization that Faith was leaving, to recognizing that he needed her for more than her abilities, her reliability and her friendship. He needed her emotionally.

This is the fourth story of the Orchard Hill series where Pansy Parker and Misty Green are in a year long competition to see who is the better matchmaker.
