About the book:


Sometimes love shows up when you least expect it.

Nineteen-year-old Mary Kate Lapp yearns for adventure, but all she seems to find is trouble. Her dreams of travel have taken a backseat to her assignment to teach school this year. And nothing ever seems to happen in her sleepy Amish community.

But when a sudden and unexplained death conveniently coincides with the arrival of a mysterious young man, M.K. is frustrated that no one takes it seriously. She's determined to take matters into her own hands and get to the bottom of it. Will she find more than she bargained for?

Centered on one of bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher's most loved characters, this is the Stoney Ridge story you have been waiting for. With a surprise at every turn, a gentle romance, and a shocking answer to an old family mystery, The Lesson is the dramatic conclusion to the Stoney Ridge Seasons series.

My thoughts:

Pleasantly surprised by The Lesson! I'm pretty sure this is the third book I've read by Suzanne Woods Fisher and it may be my favorite! I absolutely loved M.K.'s character - she had me laughing a lot! I also really liked Chris's character.

There were some surprises in The Lesson that made my enjoyment of the book go even higher. I also loved the mystery surrounding the unexplained death that had happened in Stoney Ridge.

Even though I don't read that many Amish novels, I do enjoy a few every once in a while, and The Lesson was a great one. I recommend it if you enjoy Amish fiction.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for my review. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion - which I've done. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*

  1. Hi Melanie! Loved your review of "The Lesson." In fact, it even meant more to me that you're not a reader of much Amish fiction. I appreciate that and was glad you enjoyed the story...on its own merits. So sorry it took me a while to drop by. Lots of family things going on over the holidays, then a manuscript due in. I'm just catching up now. Grateful to you, Melanie! warmly, Suzanne
