Lessons Learned is a heart wrenching story about two teachers, each struggling to move on from their respective pasts, and how their pasts help shape them in a way that they could save the life of one of their students. I will state right off the bat, that I LOVED this book. It is a book that makes you really think about some of the more weighty topics in this world without being preachy or heavy handed about it. The lessons learned by the main characters are also lessons, you as the reader, can take away too. Sarah Bray has decided to move back to her tiny mountain town of Sycamore Falls after a tragic event in her last school has left her traumatized. Her therapist suggested a change of scenery, and even though she never imagined moving back, she’s craving the comfort and security that sometimes only your hometown can give you. Lucas Miller. What can I say about Lucas Miller? He too is a teacher looking for a fresh start. He comes to Sycamore Falls, knowing it is about as different from New York City as you can get. When he runs into Sarah Bray at the hardware store, immediately you will feel the connection. He is such a swoony character. He is chivalrous and kind, loving and patient. He is the picture perfect man, and I almost kept waiting for some horrible character trait to come out. Ultimately, he is everything that Sarah Bray needs in her life at exactly the right time. The story feels honest and all of the characters in the book are relatable in a way that you probably knew someone, at some time in your life, that was like them. The book will make your heart swell, tears fall and your mind work. I absolutely adored this book and urge you to go out and read it. Kudos to Sydney and I can’t wait to read any of her future work.

Author: Sidney Logan Published By: The Writer's Coffee Shop Age Recommended: Adult Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Book Blog For: GMTA Rating: 5 Review: "Lessons Learned" by Sidney Logan was one of the best novels I have read in a long time. It was simply wonderful writing. I loved how this author was able to take the reader though such a awesome heartwarming ride from the beginning till the end leaving you not wanting to put it down until the end. Oh, what a ending! This is a story of Sarah, a English teacher who had witness a horrible tragedy had happened at her last job in Miami ...comes back home trying to overcome her 'panic attacks'... to old friends, her grandmothers' house...some familiarity....but only to have to be faced with 'small town mentality and prejudices.' After Sarah arrives back at Sycamore Falls where every knows everyones' business she gets a English teaching job at the HS ...meets Lucas who was also just arrived in town from New York with secrets of his own attempting to start over and do what he loves best...teach. Wow, what could possibly happen from this? After a while is there something going on between Sarah and Lucas? Wow, again! Will they find refuge in each other? Now, this is where I say you must pick up "Lessons Learned" to see how, why and what else this author will give to the reader. There seems to be a student(Matt) who confides in Sarah. What will be the outcome of that? Wow, again... get ready for a good read. Look for love, anger, sorrow, healing, hope, joy, prejudice, and laughter! Be ready to take a roller-coaster ride. For you will get all of these questions answered by picking up this read. I found all of the characters simply wonderful in that they were so well developed for their part in this excellent read and as a matter of fact I find "Lessons Learned" to be one novel that I will not forget any time soon. Would I recommend "Lessons Learned" as a

This was a REALLY good book!  Sweet romance, intense issues, and real emotions - it has a little something for everyone!  I love this book, even if it made me cry.  The characters in the book felt real, I cried with their pain & smiled in their joy.  An awesome debut novel & a great book for book club discussions, I look forward to many more books by this author!!

I received a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. Sarah Bray moves back to her small hometown to escape the trauma she experienced at the high school she taught at in Memphis. Upon returning home and renovating her grandmother’s house, she meets the handsome Lucas Miller. She thinks that he will help her forget the tragedy that brought her home, unfortunately, hate can be anywhere. This was quite a tearjerker for me, I didn’t think that an entire town could behave as despicably as these people did. This was a fantastic story of love, support, and tolerance. Be sure to have a box of tissues handy, this one will have you in tears.
