Lucy has never forgiven herself for not paying attention to her little sister and allowing her to be kidnapped. Now as an adult she moves from Lexington, KY to Morehead, KY to help the superintendent of schools, Cora Wilson Stewart. While in Morehead Lucy learns more than being a secretary, she learns about love, God, and forgiveness.

Suzanne Woods Fisher is an author that I read without even looking at what the book is about. I was ecstatic to learn The Moonlight School was set in my home state of Kentucky and was based on the real Cora Wilson Stewart. I laughed, cried, and cheered as reading. This book is sure to touch everyone’s hearts especially educators. Can you imagine taking up the task of organizing a way to teach all the illiterates in a county with no internet, phone, or funds?

I plan on gifting this book to several friends that I believe will get a lot of encouragement from Cora.
