What’s New in Kate’s World

The second book in the Lancaster Discoveries Series is available!


“In Starting from Scratch, Kate Lloyd creates a delightful cast of characters with flaws to which we can all relate. This is a story rich with details from the Lancaster County Amish countryside. You’ll want to keep turning the pages through the twists and turns to discover if Eva makes the right choices in love and faith.” —Kelly Irvin, author of the Amish of Bee County series

“A page-turner sure to hold you captive from start to finish.” —Laura V. Hilton

“From the whirlwind beginning to the delightfully unexpected ending, Starting from Scratch is an adventurous tale of life as you rarely see it.” —Naomi Miller, author of the Amish Sweet Shop Mystery series
