The Mason Jar 
"The Mason Jar"
James Russel Lingerfelt

Clayton Fincannon, Finn, has a heart for others, He wants to help the less fortunate as much as he can.  While taking college classes, Finn meets the love of his life.  A woman who shares his passion for helping others.  They spend lots of time together getting to know each other and falling in love.  But when Eden leaves the college without a real good-by, Finn doesn't know what to do.  

He falls into a deep depression and tries to find happiness and purpose from other means.  He spends the next decade depressed, lonely, and trying to find a purpose in his life.  

Will Finn ever find out what happened to Eden?  Will he spend the rest of his life depressed?

The book did not live up to my expectation.  There were several things that I did not agree with.  There was a lot of drinking, smoking, and innuendos.  There were also several inconsistencies within the book.   For instance Eden's name was never changed to protect her identity.  Also, I felt like the letters in the mason jar between Finn and his grandfather were underrated.  The mason jar letters are what intrigued me to begin with and the reason I was interested in the book.  Over all "The Mason Jar" is a book for light reading, if you have nothing else to do.
