Review: Lessons Learned by Sidney Logan

Book Description

 September 5, 2012
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.

My Review:

Lessons learned is a debut novel from this writer, it is an romantic book about a small town in the South, where some people still have to old fashioned close minds.

Sarah Bray moves back to the small town Sycamore Falls with still a old traumatic  pain which she has to overcome and deal with.
She meets Lucas a teacher from New York, who has a culture shock to deal with in the Southern little town, but they soon become good friends and more... it is an sweet story, the characters grow on you and you cry and laugh with them. When Matt is a student of both  tells her he is gay, and it comes out in the open the close community has mixed reactions to it, if it all works out, you have to read for yourself..... It is a sweet story.
