But when a sudden and unexplained death conveniently coincides with the arrival of a mysterious young man, M.K. is frustrated that no one takes it seriously. She's determined to take matters into her own hands and get to the bottom of it. Will she find more than she bargained for?
Centered on one of bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher's most loved characters, this is the Stoney Ridge story you have been waiting for. With a surprise at every turn, a gentle romance, and a shocking answer to an old family mystery, The Lesson is the dramatic conclusion to the Stoney Ridge Seasons series.
My take: M.K. is by far my favorite of all of Fisher's Stoney Ridge characters, so I couldn't wait to read her story. It did not disappoint!
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 the third book in Fisher's Stoney Ridge Seasons series, but you don't need to read the first two books to enjoy this one. Of course, some things from the first two books are wrapped up in The Lesson, and to get the full M.K. experience you need to read all three, but you can quite easily jump in and enjoy The Lesson without any prior knowledge of the series.
The Lesson is a fitting conclusion to a great series, and I highly recommend it! 4-1/2 out of 5 stars.
