    Lina Mail Order Brides of the West by Debra HollandThe second of the mail order brides Lina is of Italian descent and fiercely protects the child in the story while making minestrone for everyone that visits.It s a charming historical romance story that focuses briefly on the hardships of the west and the role of women but on the hopes and dreams of finding love and friendships.My final question on this book was that Johan was a hunter and that s how he fed the family Is that also how he earned [...]

    Montana meets minestroneItalian American city girl meets reclusive Montana fella Problems faced by Lina and Jonah range from alcoholism, depression, racial tensions, bigotry, suicide, and blended families to the hardships of love, loss and life Historical fiction that touches the heart Characters are believable and richly developed The reader can readily imagine Lina s desire to engage with others, while Jonah can t imagine being off the ranch Well done book

    I think I m done with these for awhile I ve read 4 of them and I think there are 4 Perhaps I ll read them sometime in the future but right now I am tired of them.In this one, Lina is looking for a husband with children as she loves kids and looks forward to having both stepchildren and her own babies too She ends up in Trudy s town Trudy was the bride in book 1 Again, an entertaining fun read.

    I enjoyed that there were two different cultures represented in this story It added an interesting element to the mail order bride flavor Things just seemed to resolve themselves so easily and with just a little bit of effort on each character s part that it just fell flat for me.

    This story deals with so many issues that are still relevant today The problems faced by Lina and Jonah range from alcoholism, depression, racial tensions, bigotry, suicide, and blended families to the hardships of love, loss and life It touched me so deep in my heart This was my favorite by far of the Mail Order Brides of the West series because it had so many layers I love the characters that Debra Holland and Caroline Fyffe but Lina has been the one I relate to the best She overcomes so much [...]

    Another great story about the Sweetwater Springs brides This is the story of Lina She is from a large Italian family She married a man who rarely goes into town and basically has one friend It s fun to read how Lina gets her husband out of his shell and become a part of the community As I read I could picture Lina s big family and all of the Sweetwater Springs gatherings One of my favorite parts is when Jonah goes into town to check his mail When he mentions that his mail order bride will be arr [...]

    My heart broke for Jonah when I read this story The loneliness that he felt and what lead him to his first wife just made me sob I just loved this couple The conclusions that they each came to at the funeral can only be described as God given Sometimes in life we pray and wait for an answer but just aren t ready to hear what God has to say In this scene they were both ready to listen and God had a lot to say Beautifully written.
