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 wisdomfor 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 ambitionsand new blessings that could take their place if he would but allow them room.

SqwigglesCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5June 17, 2014SqwigglesCaliforniaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I 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.
