James Russell Lingerfelt  in his new book, “mason jar book coverThe Mason Jar”  published by William and Keats Publishing brings us into the life of Sophia Montgomery.

From the back cover:   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, named Savannah. 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 missing 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 epic, romance, tragedy which brings hope to people who have experienced disappointment in life due to separation from loved ones. With a redemptive ending 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.

You go into some restaurants now and order Sweet Tea and they deliver it to you in a Mason Jar. That’s very nice but the real purpose of the Mason Jar is to help preserve jams. relishes, things like that. It is good to put things into to keep and, of course, eventually take things out of. This Mason Jar holds more than just fruits or vegetables this holds memories and answers. This is a love story between Clayton and Eden that begins, ends abruptly and then has the chance to begin again based on what is in the Mason Jar. These are interesting characters and we are drawn into their world and invest ourselves in their romance rooting for them all the way.  If we cannot have the movie it is good to have the book.
