James Russell’s “The Mason Jar”

Don’t get me wrong, but I believed that this book would make me cringe with all the romance and the cheesiness. But I was wrong. I thoroughly enjoyed the book! 
It was a short and sweet tale between two individuals, deeply in love, but separated by fate. The time and distance between the two failed to put out their love for one another. Finn, crushed by the separation sets out to rejuvenate, and writes a book on his treasured time with Emily. As life would have it, their love rekindled after several years, this time stronger. 
I loved the book! My favorite part would have to be the letters shared between Finn and his Grandad. They were inspiring, and left me wiser. I loved the plot and the structure. The writing style was beautiful. 
I for one, found the ending quite cliched. The ending I believed could’ve been tweaked to include something different or maybe their reunion could’ve been longer and more dramatic. 
The book, otherwise is a wonderful read! 

I’d rate it a 4/5!
