Starting From Scratch by Kate Lloyd
This was a book of redemption, of misconstrued gossip and misunderstanding of truth.
As Jake and Eva try to redeem themselves, things seem to get in the way of that goal. Yet they continue to work towards that goal.
This book has some romance, some mystery and suspence. It is written in first person, Eva. So you can understand her thoughts and feelings as the book progresses.
In a well-paced book, Eva goes through the process of making important decisions in her life, never rushing to meet everyone's approval of being baptised into the faith. I felt that she was a careful person, not wanting to make a mistake and wanting to do the best she could for both herself and others.
This was probably my favorite book from this author. It wasn't a "cookie-cutter" Amish, a term that I have seen regarding descriptions of some Amish books, but had a new and unique concept which was very enjoyable to me.
I highly recommend this read. And it will keep you up reading late!
I received a copy of this book from the author. All thoughts are my own.
