Lessons Learned

The Appalachian Heart Collection

by Sydney Logan

English teacher Sarah Bray never thought she’d return to Sycamore Falls, but a traumatic event at her inner-city school leaves her desperate for the sanctuary of home. By returning to her roots, an older and wiser Sarah hopes to deal with the demons of her present and confront the ghosts of her past. She discovers a kindred spirit in Lucas Miller, a teacher from New York with demons of his own. They quickly become friends—bonding through Lucas’s culture shock and their mutual desire to build new lives. When they open their wounded hearts to each other, their friendship effortlessly evolves into romance. Their love is put to the test when Matt, the quarterback of the football team, shares his deepest secret with Sarah. When the conservative community finds out, Sarah and Lucas—along with the town of Sycamore Falls—are schooled in the lessons of acceptance, tolerance, and love.

Praise for Lessons Learned

It's sad.

It's painful.

But it's also honest.

This book had a little bit of everything. I swooned, I cried, I was angry, but at the heart of the story, I also fell in love with the two main characters. And at the end of the day, that's why I read.

This book is just truly amazing. I could read this book every single day. When I finished it, I started talking to a friend about Sarah and Lucas' life and Matt graduating and felt a little sad that I wasn't able to be at his graduation. I was THAT into it. Throughout the entire thing, I felt like I was a fly on the wall. A fly with feelings, I guess.

I don't have a single complaint about this book. Not a single one. If anything, I wish there were more. I could read about the rest of Sarah and Lucas' life for the rest of my life.

I cried so many tears: happy and sad.

This book needs a tissue warning on the inside cover.
