Starting from Scratch by Kate Lloyd
Book description: En Alt Maedel—an old maid.
At age twenty-nine, that's what Eva Lapp considers herself. And who could argue with her? Finding a good Amish husband at her age will be next to impossible. Plus, Eva's unwarranted bad reputation in Lancaster County precedes her. Maybe living the Englisch life would be better.
Squeezed out of her childhood home by her brother's boisterous family, Eva finds lodging and a new job managing a small café at a local plant nursery. But the challenge of her new position isn't enough to distract from her current predicament.
To Eva's surprise, her first love, Jake Miller, suddenly returns to Lancaster County. Flooded with emotions and filled with questions about Jake's past, can Eva trust what she's feeling?
Jake and Eva face many obstacles in their quest for a fresh start in the community, but perhaps with God's help, they can find the redemption they both desperately need.
Starting from Scratch is not your typical Amish romance. Eva is a 29 year old "old-maid", and she is desperate to finally find love and begin a family of her own. Thrust into a job that she didn't even know she wanted, her life changed instantly.
From a lonely old-maid to becoming the center of attention of many interested male admirers/suitors, Eva had a hard time knowing how to respond to it all. Romance, drama and even danger seemed to followed her everywhere!
A light-hearted romance filled with lots of twists and turns makes this an enjoyable story, and it's definitely an unpredictable read.
