- The Mason Jar by James Russell Lingerfelt
What if your old college roommate called, raving about a book someone sent her, calling it the most beautiful book she's ever read? "But," she said, "it's about you." The author is your college ex.
In The Mason Jar, Clayton Fincannon is a Tennessee farm boy raised at the feet of his grandfather. He and his grandfather leave letters for each other in a Mason jar on his grandfather's desk---letters of counsel and affirmation. When Clayton attends college in Southern California, he meets and falls in love with a dark debutante from Colorado. However, when an unmentioned past resurrects in her life and she leaves, Clayton is left with unanswered questions.
Clayton goes on to serve as a missionary in Africa, while he and his grandfather continue their tradition of writing letters. When Clayton returns home five years later to bury his grandfather, he searches for answers pertaining to the loss of the young woman he once loved. Little does Clayton know, the answers await him in the broken Mason jar.
A story about a girl who vanished, a former love who wrote a book about her, and a reunion they never imagined.
Written for the bruised and broken, The Mason Jar is an inspirational romance that brings hope to people who have experienced disappointment in life due to separation from loved ones. With a redemptive ending that encourages us to love again and written in the fresh, romantic tones of Nicholas Sparks, The Mason Jar interweaves the imagery of Thoreau with the adventures and climatic family struggles common to Dances with Wolves, A River Runs Through It, and Legends of the Fall.

I really enjoyed "The Mason Jar!" I was so intrigued by the blurb on the back cover and also the picture on the front cover. The story sounded so intriguing and so romantic and I was not disappointed at all with the story, except for when it ended. I am hoping for more novels from this author! Eden and Finn were both characters whom I could not help but love and I was completely drawn into their story and into their lives. Finn is a strong main character and his values, love and commitment to those whom he cares for shines through everything that he says and does. I loved the letter writing practice that Finn and his grandfather had. The writing of this story is well-done and the descriptions create beautiful images and I became completely lost in the story.
