The Lesson by Suzanne Woods Fisher

The Lesson

by Suzanne Woods Fisher



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.

My Thoughts on this Book

In the third and final book of Susan Woods Fisher’s Stoney Ridge Seasons Series, Mary Kate Lapp is now nineteen old and still looking for action. But this time, did her sneaking around get her in more trouble that she expected? And to make it worse, it landed her to job of teaching in their Amish school, and Mary Kate certainly was not a school teacher.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Mary Kate’s story. She was a fun character throughout the first two books in the series because of her free spirit, and determination to find out everything! I am also a Susan Wood’s Fisher fan and I love this entire series. The characters were enjoyable and realistic, drawing you into the story and keeping your attention. And the interesting plot keeps you reading because so much is happening to the Lapp family you just want to find out the outcome.

If you love Amish fiction, you will love The Lesson, and the first two books in this series. Or if you are looking for a nice enjoyable light read, this is your series! Go out and grap a copy of these books to read for yourself. You will not be disappointed.

A copy of this book was provided by Litfuse Publicity Tours. I was not required or expected to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine only.

    Hi Splashes of Joy! So glad you enjoyed M.K.’s story! And I really appreciate your suggestion to try this book that even if you aren’t an Amish fiction fan (means so much to me to hear that!). I’m sorry I haven’t stopped by your blog sooner on the tour…I had a manuscript due in right after Christmas, just as “Lesson” was releasing, and I’ve been busier than a one-armed paperhanger. Just getting caught up now. If you have a minute to spare, would you post your review on Amazon? Those customer reviews are hugely beneficial. Grateful you’re part of the blog tour, Splashes! Warmly, Suzanne
