What’s New in Kate’s World
—Vannetta Chapman, author of the Plain and Simple Miracles series
“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.”
—Kelly Irvin, author of the Amish of Bee County series
“Love, forgiveness, and a reminder of the devastating power of words—Starting from Scratch will tug at your heartstrings, tickle your funny bone, and leave you breathless for more.”
—Amy Lillard, author of the Wells Landing Series
“You will enjoy every minute you spend with Starting from Scratch, and you will come away at the end with new life in your heart. That’s simply the way it is with Kate Lloyd’s novels.
—Murray Pura, author of My Heart Belongs in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
This collection from bestselling Amish fiction novelists Leslie Gould, Jan Drexler, and Kate Lloyd finds the beating heart at the center of the holiday and offers three novellas that celebrate family, faith, and especially the sights and smells of a bustling holiday kitchen.
