The Lesson by Suzanne Woods Fisher



The Lesson is the third book in the Stoney Ridge Seasons Series by Suzanne Woods Fisher. You certainly do not need to read the first two books in order to enjoy The Lesson. But I enjoyed reading the whole series. It involves three sisters, each book is dedicated to a sister.

The Lesson is a great read, just like all of Suzanne Woods Fisher books. If you like light romance or Amish books, I would recommend giving The Lesson a try. Suzanne Woods Fisher is a wonderful author and I always love her books!

The Lesson is about a young woman, Mary Kate Lapp, who’s always looking for adventure but always seems to find trouble. Mary Kate want to travel and be a detective, but those are against the Amish ways. Mary Kate does find adventure and love, but just not the way she thought she would!


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.¬†

I'm a mother of 2 who likes to get involved in too much! Besides writing here I started a non-profit, I'm on the PTO board, very active in my community and volunteer in the school. I enjoy music, reading, cooking, traveling and spending time with my family. We just adopted our 3rd cat and love them all!
