{More 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.

  • THE LESSON BY SUZANNE WOODS FISHER

    I have absolutely enjoyed this series. I know the series has covered the entire Lapp girls but I would love for one more book in this series! I have liked each girl, but Mary Kate (M.K.) Lapp has been my favorite. She makes me laugh at the things that she does and says. She is full of spunk and takes delight in her detective skills.

  • THE LESSON STONEY RIDGE SEASON BY SUZANNE WOOD FISHER

    I got in a little late in this series as this is the third book and final book in this series. Now I find myself wanting to read the other two books in the series. How did I miss the other two books!

    I have always enjoyed Suzanne Woods Fisher’s books. Even though I didn’t read the other books in the series I was able to jump right in the story as the story without missing too much.

    This is not your typical Amish series. The characters are interesting, one of a kind, and just plain likable. M.K. is fun, witty, unique, and just an unforgettable character. She is so passionate once she gets her mind set on something.
    Chris and Jenny you can’t help but to have some deep feelings for them. You just want everything to work out for them. You will just have to find read it for yourself to

  • WONDERFUL CONCLUSION TO A WONDERFUL SERIES

    The Lesson By Suzanne Woods Fisher is the third and last book in her Stoney Ridge Seasons and I loved it. I had the privilege of reading the previous books in this series and The Lesson did not disappoint. The Lesson is centered around Mary Kate Lapp, known by all as M.K. She is the youngest of the Lapp girls and definitely a character. M.K. is curious about everything, wants to experience everything, and finds herself in trouble more times than not.

  • A BOOK REVIEW

    It’s another hit novel from one of my favorite authors, Suzanne Woods Fisher. The Lesson is the perfect read for fans of her series, Stoney Ridge Seasons. It brings you right into the world of Amish living, and once again, brings you to a simpler way of living with each page written. I read the book very quickly as the pace was fast, the characters delightful, and I loved that there were several story lines, with even a few twists and turns that I was not expecting.

    This is a great book. My heart went out to Chris and Jenny. With all the difficulties they faced, they didn’t give up hope and Chris just keeps on trying to give Jenny a better life. MK got me frustrated at times because she would just barrel through without giving thought to those who might be affected by her actions.

I would give this one 4 3/4 stars, only because it ended before I wanted it to, I’d have liked a few of the things cleared up, that she left hanging. I’m sure there will be another book that will clear those things up..

    Another winner by Suzanne Woods Fisher. M.Kis my favorite character in this series. She started out as a young girl into everything & knew everything about everyone. As a young woman you will see Mary Kate grow up into a young lady, you will laugh, you will see her sruggle, grow in faith and fall in love. I hate to see this series end. I read my first book by Suzanne a little over 2 yrs ago. I’e read all of them now & she has become one of my favorite authors. If you never tried her books, then what are you waiting for?

    I admit, I am a sucker for a fun book. I like a light-hearted story with great characters who I can see doing life with. I like to see them face realistic challenges and deal head on with them.
    I think this was my favorite of the series, I so enjoy MK’s personality that I was drawn into this story very quickly and stayed connected until I was done! I highly recommend!!

Although I am sad to be packing up and leaving Stoney Ridge I can honestly say Suzanne has really out done herself with this book. From book one Mary Kate Lapp has demanded attention so for her to have a book that is all about MK, well that’s pretty special.

  • A GREAT CONCLUSION TO THE SERIES!

    Anyone, Amish fiction readers and young adult fiction readers, will enjoy this book. It’s so well written and even though it’s labeled as a romance it’s probably one of the most “real” fiction books that I’ve read. Without giving anything away I’ll just say that not everything works out perfectly and some people are still left with scars and situations that are difficult to deal with even after the last page is turned. I have to hand it to Suzanne for making the Stoney Ridge series and its characters so complex and yet easy to relate to. I’m going to miss the Lapps and their Amish community but hopefully her new series goes for the gut as these last two have.

  • THE END OF THE STONEY RIDGE SERIES, BUT WHAT AN ENDING!!

    Suzanne’s special and unique ability to develop her characters is evident throughout this story. She has built on the first book of the series by having them age and mature. I eagerly awaited MK”s appearance in this book and was thrilled to discover that she was the main character, the focus of the whole adventure! MK has remained precocious throughout the stories, from a wee one to a young lady and has the ability to make you laugh , cry and even feel some fear, all in the same chapter. You get to the point of feeling that she is part of your family or a very dear friend and you want to rescue her when she gets into her typical MK situations- quaint, funny, sometimes dangerous! All of the characters are appealing, each in their own way. They are ordinary people with ordinary problems and have to deal with the crisis of the day! The Amish faith and lifestyle shines through . Although they may have problems, the way in which they are dealt with, exhibit their faith and reassurance in God and His ability to see them through.

    There are many things in this book that tickled my funnybone. I laughed when Mary Kate decided it would be a good idea to scooter down the hill with her eyes closed. Who does that?

    I loved M.K’s descriptions of Fern. Fern! So over involved! So meddlesome! So ever-present!

    I enjoyed reading the transformation of Mary Kate from an immature girl who thought things were never her fault, to a mature young lady who learned to love life where she was at right now.

    As with the other books from Suzanne, this book is a welcome diversion from the busyness of the modern world. It is a lot of fun to spend time with Suzanne’s Amish characters and its community.

  • EXCELLENT STORY!

    I really liked how the story had her taking on the task of teaching school, when she really didn’t want to. It emphasized to me how these things happen in our lives and they end up being something the Lord has planned for us and we end up actually enjoying these things.

    This story has the right balance of intrigue, romance, fun, and thoughtful lessons. It was one of those books I had a hard time putting down because it was so delightful! I highly recommend it!

  • BOOK REVIEW: “THE LESSON” BY SUZANNE WOODS FISHER

    Suzanne Woods Fisher writes an interesting story that moves along at a remarkably brisk pace. “The Lesson” is full of interesting characters that keep us involved in the story and this time the focus is on Mary Kate Lapp. Mary Kate or “M. K.” is a full of energy nineteen year old who uses other people as a brake for her scooter. After her accident with the schoolteacher she is ordered to be the teacher in her place. Then she also has an accident with Chris who is there to claim his inheritance. All the while M.K. is trying to solve the shooting of a sheep farmer. This is the third book in this series and Ms. Fisher wraps up plot points that have been brewing through the first two books. Ms. Fisher has a lot of characters to work with and she provides an excellent story for them to g

  • THE LESSON

    I was super excited to see how Suzanne would bring all this to a closure. It can be read as a stand alone but to really get to know the characters of Stoney Ridge, you will want to pick up the other two books. This is a delightful end to the most animated character in this series and one I could relate to quite a bit with my own version of M.K. in my youngest daughter. It has allowed me to see her a bit differently than I did before and like the ending of the book, it all comes full circle when you can see where it has all been going before. For fans of Christian Amish Romance with a bit of mystery attached, you will want to place this one on your must read list! I rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars!

  • BOOK REVIEW-THE LESSON

    The Lesson is another wonderful novel by Suzanne Woods Fisher, the 3rd book in the Stoney Ridge Seasons series. I had read the first two books, and the character Mary Kate Lapp was so much fun in the previous two! I was so glad when I saw this book was going to center around Mary Kate! I loved that there was so much going on in this story-Mary Kate Lapp is not your normal Amish young woman, she seems to attract trouble! Her personal journey overcoming her fear at being the local schoolteacher is inspiring, and the new character Chris Yoder was a great addition! The Lesson has characters that you feel like you know personally by the end of the story, and the story moves along at a perfect pace. Even if you haven’t read the first two in this series, you could easily read The Lesson by itself.

    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.

    This has been one of my favorite books from the Amish genre. Suzanne Woods Fisher knows her characters well and makes them seem real to the reader. She also knows the Amish culture and locales, which makes for a unique backdrop. If you have read the beginning of the series, you will not be disappointed by this book. If you haven’t read the series yet, I recommend it as a good introduction to Amish fiction.

    M.K. is such a fun protagonist—her thought processes are so unusual, and Woods does a fantastic job of putting the reader inside M.K.’s head! I also appreciated how M.K. grew throughout the novel, and the lesson she learned about contentment is one I need to learn, as well.

    The story is filled with love, heartache, misunderstandings, forgiveness, unexpected twists, and a healthy dose of humor. And the supporting characters—especially M.K.’s stepmother Fern, her pupil Jenny, and her UNCLE HANK (you’ll understand when you read the book)—are so fun to read about.

    The Lesson is a fitting conclusion to a great series, and I highly recommend it!

  • GOODBYE TO STONEY RIDGE IN STYLE

    As always I did thoroughly enjoy Ms. Woods Fisher’s way around the Amish community. I do hold a place in my heart and reading schedule for Amish fiction and the books from this author are some of my favorites. The characters (with Mary Kate’s exception) are a delight and they remind me of places I visited when I was child living in Philadelphia and then New Jersey. The stories are wholesome and the romances sweet. A nice break from some of the darker, heavier books I read.

    I will look forward to the next series and the next set of Amish stories from the pen of Ms. Woods Fisher.

    Suzanne Woods Fisher is quickly becoming one of my favorite Amish fiction authors and The Lesson did not disappoint. Fisher has a way of interweaving bits of intrigue and drama into her lighthearted romantic tales that make you not want to put the book down until you have read the very last page.

    I was captivated by Mary Kate’s story in The Lesson. I think we can all relate to wanting something more out of life than what we have. I really enjoyed MK’s transformation throughout the story as she blossomed into the woman God wanted her to be.

Filled with humor, drama, and romance, “The Lesson” also contains more than one lesson for its readers. I heartily endorse it.

  • THE LESSON BY SUZANNE WOODS FISHER – REVIEWED

    The Lesson is a very multi-layered story filled with a group of characters that will make you laugh and cry, and leave your heart forever changed. There are elements of this story that are unexpected and will cause you to reconsider how you relate to those around you – how you can make a difference in the lives of others if you can just let go of your own hurts and faults. Truly, this is a story for everyone, and I can’t recommend it highly enough! It is just plain fabulous!! (pun intended!)

    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

    Suzanne Woods Fisher is one of my all time favorite authors, especially for Amish fiction. She keeps her characters true to form and doesn’t try to modernize them or make them what they would otherwise be as Amish people. Her characters are so down to earth, honest to goodness people that you feel like they could be the kid next door or the girl behind the counter at the bakery. She reels you in, hook like and sinker making you beg for more when you have read the final word on the final page. The Lesson is no exception. You will fall in love with MK and her free-spirited impulsive nature, which is completely out of character for what we perceive as Amish way of life. MK just goes to prove that stereotypes are to be thrown out the window!

  • BOOK REVIEW: THE LESSON

    From the first book I ever read by Suzanne Woods Fisher, I was hooked! She writes about real life and real relationships and does so in a refreshing way. The Lesson is another wonderful book from this talented author. The third book in the Stoney Ridge Seasons series features youngest daughter Mary Kate Lapp or M.K. as she is known in her community. Impulsive and restless, Mary Kate embarks on yet another adventure — teaching the scholars of her Amish community. Through this she begins to really grow up. And because M.K. would love to be a detective if she were not Amish, mysteries abound. All in all, Fisher has written another winner!

  • THE LESSON ~ STONEY RIDGE #3 BY SUSANNE WOODS FISHER ~ IPAD GIVEAWAY

    The author has outdone herself on this book. My family kept trying to distract me from my reading but I just kept shooing them away. In this book you have intrigue, intrigue and more intrigue. Along with humor, romance, heartaches and reconciliation, secrets hidden and I emphasize secrets, and secrets revealed. It has an abundance love and support of family. But most importantly their Faith in God.

  • HE LESSON BY SUZANNE WOODS FISHER

    From the beginning paragraphs Ms. Fisher creates a story that’s filled with a bit of mystery along with plenty of excitement for nineteen year old M.K. Lapp who had been longing for a bit of adventure.

    I have loved the entire Stoney Ridge Seasons series and couldn’t wait to read Mary Kate’s story who happened to be one of my favorite characters in the series. All I can say is that Suzanne saved the best story for last!

  • THE LESSON

    You are going to LOVE the conclusion to the Stoney Ridge Seasons series. As with any of Suzanne’s books I could not put it down. I loved Mary Kate Lapp and Chris and his sister Jenny. I feel in love with all three of them right off the bat.

    This is a must read series. Best book hands down in the series.
    If you have not read Suzanne’s books before, this is fantastic series to start out with.
    I give this book 5 stars
    I was given a copy of this book by the publisher

  • THE LESSON

    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.

  • REVIEW OF SUZANNE WOODS FISHER’S THE LESSON

    I was so looking forward to this book! I’ve read the other two in the series, and M.K. was, by far, my favorite character from the series and I was so excited that this was her story. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed. This book was so good, I couldn’t harldy put it down. M.K. is just as precoucious as and adult as she was as a child.

  • MK GROWS UP

    The author has a great way of showing the Amish as real people, with quirks and issues just like everyone else. In the beginning of the book, I found myself a little annoyed with Mary Kate, but as the book progressed, I realized I was very much like her at that age, and I enjoyed watching her grow as she experienced the things life handed her. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Amish literature and coming of age books.

  • THE LESSON

    If you have never read any of Suzanne Woods Fisher’s books you are in for a real treat! I love the Stoney Ridge Seasons series. The Lesson is the third book in that series! This story is just as good if not better then the first two! In this story we catch up with Mary Kate(MK) and she is all grown up and wanting adventure! The problem is trouble seems to find her.

  • BOOK REVIEW: THE LESSON

    How I have waited for the final book to the Stoney Ridge Seasons series! M.K. Lapp has been my favorite character since the beginning of the series and whose story I was most interested in reading.

    I think that the plot of The Lesson was the best by far. All of the characters were well-developed and grew to be ones that the reader can relate to.

  • SUCH A TREAT

    Another great book by Suzanne Woods Fisher. This is Mary Kate Lapps story, a free spirit, as you know if you have read the other books in this series. She loves her brown bees, and her red scooter. Can just picture her riding down hill with her eyes closed on this scooter…when she collides with Chris Yoder. Another collision with the then teacher, ends up making her the teacher!
