LOVELY.That's probably the best way to put this book. Small town love stories have a way of pouring into your heart like maple syrup. The sweet, sweet relationship between Sarah and Lucas took my breath away. Lucas...ah Lucas...every woman dreams to be loved and ADORED the way you did Sarah. There is a twist in the story as Sarah and Lucas fight teenage bullying, trying to protect one of their students. It's heartbreaking...and the narrow-minded hatefulness displayed by some of their town was disgusting. But, all in all, the story didn't take you too deep into any one thing. Yes, Sarah had demons. Yes, Lucas had demons. Yes, there was some shocking bullying. But, the true heart of the story is the love between Sarah and Lucas and how that love helped them handle and move past all of it.If you're in the mood for a sugary sweet story, HIGH on the HEA-quotient...Lessons Learned is a great choice.
