Patterns of Love (Coming to America, Book 2) Reviews
PATTERNS OF LOVE is book two in Robin Hatcher's Coming to America series. The 2001 revision of the 1999 RITA Award book portrays the life of Swedish immigrant Inga Linberg and Dirk Bridger, an Iowa dairy farmer, with the added insight of their spiritual journey with God.
Really enjoyable and easy read.
I love Robin Lee Hatcher. She encircles the whole story. Each character pops off the page and i become engaged in the story as if I am there whatching it play out. Patterns of Love brought me great joy and some sadness in the story. But in the end it was as it was meant to be. Good book.
A good historical fiction series. Good for everyone from teen to grandmother. Interesting story of brave young women, all who come to America alone, looking for freedom and someone to share their life.
I loved this series of books. I would highly recommend them.
This book again was delivered to my Kindle in a very fast manner and I thing that anyone who loves adventure and romance would love Ms Hather's books
Robin Lee Hatcher is a great writer - this is an excellent book. One of those books you can't put down. She has great stories.
The book listed here is the 1998 version. It is not the Christian version. The 2001 version reflects more of Robin's current writing. I would highly recommend the 2001 edition.
