Zondervan Patterns of Love, Coming to America Series #2

Swedish immigrant Inga Linberg might not be as beautiful as her flirtatious sisters, but that doesn't mean she doesn't share their romantic ideas. When Dirk Bridger, a handsome but beleaguered Iowa farmer, approaches her minister father for help in caring for his orphaned nieces and ailing mother, Inga immediately volunteers. Inga goes to live at the Bridger farm as a housekeeper and finds that all is in disarray. Gradually, with patience and understanding, she begins to smooth the family's rough edges. As Inga falls in love with Dirk's little nieces, she is helplessly drawn to their bitter uncle, too. If only there was a way to live forever with this charming but lost family. But could she risk her secret dream of being loved by Dirk in return, when she knows that his dream is to leave them all behind?

I would actually give this book a 4.5. It isn't quite a 5 for me, but it did come close. I liked the first book, but I wasn't necessarily excited to start this one. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I found Inga easy to relate to. I think many of us have loved someone who didn't love us back and being with that person even if they didn't love us back would be better than nothing. Lucky for Inga Dirk ended up falling in love with her as well. I like that Inga was plain looking and not a beauty. She was self conscious about herself, like many women are. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because at the end Inga started to annoy me. Dirk was trying hard to win her affections, but she kept on pushing him away. It seemed dragged out to me. The side story with her sister was also interesting. Overall it was a really good book and I would recommend it. I will continue the Coming to America Series.
