9780310231059: Patterns of Love (Coming to America, Book 2)

My dear Beth, Though Uppsala, Iowa, takes its name from a city in my native Sweden, life here is different from what I have known. With my parents’ blessing, I have taken employment in the home of Mr. Bridger, a dairy farmer, caring for his ill mother and two young, orphaned nieces. It is most unlike me to leave home, even in a temporary manner. But the need is great and Hattie Bridger and the children are so endearing. As for Dirk Bridger, he is an unhappy man, but also loyal, hardworking, and honorable. And, I should add, quite handsome. My younger sisters were smitten the instant they saw him. Young flirts! And with beauty to match. I, on the other hand, am considered to have common sense to attend my common looks. But, friend Beth, I am afraid my heart betrays my wisdom—for I, too, long to be seen as beautiful. Not just by anyone. By Dirk Bridger. Your friend, Inga Linberg In rural Iowa, life is both the planter and uprooter of dreams. As love, long delayed, springs to life in the heart of a young Swedish immigrant, one man struggles with his withered ambitions—and new blessings that could take their place if he would but allow them room. Patterns of Love is Book Two in the Coming to America series about women who come to America to start new lives. Set in the late 1800s and early 1900s, these novels by best-selling author Robin Lee Hatcher craft intense chemistry and conflict between the characters, lit by a glowing faith and humanity that will win your heart. Look for other books in the series at your favorite Christian bookstore.

Review:

Inga Linberg isn't like her sisters. She isn't pretty or flirtatious, she wouldn't know how to catch a man if she tried. But she has a good heart and she's a hard worker. Inga is happy to help when farmer Dirk Bridger comes to Inga's father looking for someone to watch after his nieces and his ailing mother. What Inga doesn't count on is losing her heart to Dirk- and wondering exactly how a woman goes about attracting a man. There was a time when Dirk had dreams. Dreams of traveling the globe in search of adventure. Dreams that would take him far from the bitter cold and never ending monotony of farm life in Uppsala, Iowa. But then his brother died, leaving him to take care of his two young nieces and a farm. Now his mother is ill and the doctor isn't sure how much longer she will live. Dirk's dreams have dried up and in their place is desperation. Can a tall, willowy Swedish immigrant erase the bitterness in his heart and give him something new to dream about? In Robin Lee Hatcher's Coming to America series, the author draws from her own heritage to tell the stories of three women looking for a new life in America. Inga's story is a heartwarming tale of a girl who has always been a little different. Ms. Hatcher pens a delightful story of how Inga finds love and a family of her own. Look for the third book in the series, In His Arms, which tells the story of Irish immigrant Mary Emeline Malone, on the shelves in September. Robin Lee Hatcher is an outstanding example of romantic fiction at its best! She tells the stories readers love! Time and again, Ms. Hatcher blends history and romance into delicious confections for our pleasure! Robin Lee Hatcher's writing shines in her Coming to America series! A lovely trilogy!
