The Lesson
Stoney Ridge Seasons Book 3
By Suzanne Woods Fisher

When Mary Kate Lapp hears a gunshot that ends the life a sheep farmer, she is determined to solve the murder.  After all the police aren't as concern about solving it as she is.  But as Mk hurries home to tell her father and step-mother, Fern about the murder she almost witnessed she, her scooter, and plain school teacher Alice Smuckers have a collision.

All too soon MK's life is not her own when the school board, her father, and Fern decide that MK will be the substitute teacher for the 3 weeks it will take Alice to recover.

Chris Yoder and his sister Jenny have just moved to Stoney Ridge into their grandfather's old rundown house.  The two are trying to keep a low profile until Chris turns 21 and can inherits the house.  As they wait for the few months to go by Chris starts fixing up the house and taking odd jobs to earn money.

Jimmy Fisher has taken up pony racing and at an auction he fell in love.  Emily Esh is the woman who has captured his heart.  When Jimmy asks MK to help him meet Emily, she agrees if Jimmy helps her solve the sheep farmer murder.

Teaching school is a total disaster, MK can't keep order in the classroom or the students in it.  After MK has a scooter collision with Chris Yoder her mind starts putting coincidental facts together and determines that Stoney Ridge's newest resident must be guilty of the various crimes that have been occurring.  But has MK truly thought everything through or has she just accused an innocent man?

Amos Lapp has been keeping a secret for 15 years, a secret that could destroy lives.  This secret has been eating at him for all these years and it concerns the entire Lapp family, Chris, and Jenny.  Will he share this secret and free himself or wield it as a weapon?

MK is about to grow-up with a number of mishaps along the way.  The Lesson is not just for MK, but for Chris, Jenny, Jimmy and even her father Amos.  The Lesson is a touching look at growing up and learning to be content with what God has given us.
