Learning Lessons

Emma’s world takes on a new sparkle now that she’s a Christian and learns to forgive Aunt Shannon for the accident that took her little sister’s life. But trouble is brewing with Landlady over Taffy.

The autumn days fly by with adventures at the coffee shop job, helping with Hunter’s leaf business, Hill Top’s city-wide yard sale, and a day at the library. All the while, tension builds with Landlady, and when Emma is faced with her biggest fear, what will she do?

Learning Lessons will keep you on the edge of your seat! I LOVED it!!!” Angélica, 11

“This book is not just for kids! I was very pleased with the strong messages of choosing to forgive, despite the devastating circumstances that may try to consume us… and also the power of loving people. It all felt very real and was easy to relate to.” Olivia, mom

The book also includes 10 illustrations, with three being double spreads (so 13 full-page illustrations). I’ll give you a peek below at one of my favorites. Learning Lessons is my longest book so far with 243 pages and 23 chapters.

Although I recommend reading Finding Change (Book 1 in Hill Top Adventures) first, it’s not absolutely necessary. I give enough hints of what happened in the last book, one could read this as a standalone.

Wholesome kids’ reading books are hard to find, and what could be better than gifting kids you love this Christmas with these books? Order 4 or more copies of Learning Lessons, and save 10%. Or, order all of my books for only $99. That’s over 2000 pages of quality reading! Also, free shipping for orders of $25* or more in the United States.

Don’t miss our announcement below of the 14th special edition of Homeschooling with a Meek and Quiet Spirit also releasing today!

I’m so grateful for God’s grace in enabling me to get the book done this year.


“Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel,
who only doeth wondrous things” (Psalm 72:18).

  1. We are excited to read it, Sarah! Thank you again for your love for our families! We do delight in reading these aloud. We prayed for you this morning and rejoice with the completion of this book! What a role model you are to my girls! God’s riches blessings to you dear one! Ephesians 3:16-19

  2. Congratulations, Sarah! Last night at dinner, my son said, “Tomorrow is a big day. Sarah Maxwell’s new book comes out!” This morning we were waiting for the email announcement and when I told him I’d received the email, he said, “Oh, wait, can I make a cup of hot chocolate to make it special when you announce the title?” So, needless to say, someone at our house is very excited over your new book!

  7. I’m so happy for you, Sarah! Congrats on your accomplishment and good luck with promotion and sales (though with your excellent planning and forethought I doubt you’ll need it!) What is the ideal age group/reading level for this one? (I’m wracking my brain trying to think if I know a child I can get it for, lol!)

      1. Thank you! I see you answered that in the video as well (which I hadn’t had a chance to watch yet when I left my previous comment). 🙂 It’s a very sweet, inviting promo.
