My Thoughts About The Lesson:
The Lesson, by Suzanne Woods Fisher, is the third book in her Stoney Ridge Season series. Each book- The Keeper, The Haven and The Lesson is absolutely delightful in it's own right and you will want to read them all! I normally gravitate toward suspenseful mysteries and thrillers but Suzanne Woods Fisher has made me change my ways.:) The Stoney Ridge Seasons books have beautifully flawed characters that make you laugh, cry and think. Their strengths and weaknesses make them endearing and almost real. (I was tickled to read that Suzanne Woods Fisher describes herself as being a bit like M.K.!) Following the story of the Lapp family, you may even find yourself wishing you were Amish! The Lesson is the story of M.K. (Mary Kate Lapp) who longs for adventure and excitement. She may even be ready to leave the Amish community to travel the world- if only her passport would arrive! It includes a mystery or two, a surprising twist of fate, and suspenseful new characters that unwittingly bring an answer to buried secrets. Add to that wonderful sparkles of humor (Ms. Fisher truly knows how to make me laugh!), quiet wisdom, and a constant faith in God. I adored The Lesson but am so sad that the series has come to an end. Good thing, the next Adventures with Lily book is soon to be released!
