The Lesson by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Enter Today - 1/3 - 1/20! Suzanne Woods Fisher The Lesson iPad Giveaway 

  About The Lesson: Centered on one of Suzanne Woods Fisher's most loved characters, this is the story fans have eagerly anticipated. The precocious M.K. is all grown up (well, almost) and ready to take on the world-with surprising results. Fisher's trademark plot twists and turns are as unexpected and satisfying as ever in this third book in the Stoney Ridge Seasons series. In her wildest dreams, spunky and impulsive nineteen-year-old Mary Kate Lapp never imagined herself behind a schoolteacher's desk. A run-in (literally) with the schoolteacher compels her to act as a substitute teacher, just as her restless desire to see the world compels her to apply for a passport . . . just in case. The only thing of interest to M.K. in the sleepy Amish community of Stoney Ridge is the unexplained death of a sheep farmer that coincided with the arrival of a mysterious young man into the community. Frustrated that no one takes the crime seriously, she takes matters into her own hands. Unfortunately, as tends to be the case for M.K., she jumps headlong into trouble. Link to buy the book:

My Take:  This book was delightful from beginning to end. It was also a satisfying end to the Lapp Family books.  The book Started out with a bang and kept you on the edge of your seat not with suspense but with wondering what M.K. will come up with next.  Because of an incident that she has with the school teacher she becomes the substitute teacher which she feels is a total injustice.  We also meet Chris and his sister Jenny and we slowly learn what kind of life they have had to live.  I would recommend that you read this book and you will want to start at the beginning.
I received a review copy of this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest opinion.

  1. Hi there! I wanted to thank you for posting your review about "The Lesson." So glad you enjoyed it! I'm sorry I didn't pop through the blog tour sooner...a manuscript due in last week took up every spare minute! But I'm getting caught up now and wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your thoughtful words. Glad you were on the Litfuse tour! Warmly, Suzanne
