THE LESSON, by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Revelle, a division of Baker publishing
294 pages

Mary Kate Lapp, known as MK to her friends, is 19 and a dreamer.  She can think of many exciting things to do with her life, dectective work, travels.  One of them isn't teaching school to a bunch of kids.  But when the regulat reacher gets hurt, she gets 'recruited' to do the job, until the regular teacher comes back.

She would rather investigate the death of the sheep farmer down the road, or do anything other than teach, but she gives it a go, when she finds she has no choice.  Besides it will only be 2 weeks and 2 days, surely she can get through that without much trouble.

I think I have read nearly every book that Suzanne Woods Fisher has written,  and she continues to put a great story out there for her readers.  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..

I received this book through Litfuse to read and review.  I received no other compensation.  All opinions expressed here are my own, I am not required to give a positive review.

I just have to get back to reading one of these days since this one sounds like a good one.

Hi Jettie! Thanks so much for your thumbs up review for "Lesson!" And I do understand how you feel about the ending. I left Chris's mother unfinished intentionally--I think there are some people in our life that we just can't "fix." As much as we'd like to. So that was my reasoning. Anyway...grateful to have you on the blog tour! Warmly, Suzanne
