                                    MOONBEAMS FROM A JAR


“In a timeless new southern voice, Fletcher’s well-crafted prose catches the spirit of small-town life in the forties.  His unforgettable characters fill the pages with the wisdom of simpler times.  ..a page-turning pleasure.” Linda Douty, author of four books on the spiritual journey.

“So much of the book rings true to me because I experienced the same things.  I shed tears several times. A very moving story.”  Newton Neely, retired Professor of Theatre, University of Montevallo.

“…how amazing it is that a story which is so foreign to my experience can come so much alive as if I had been there myself and had seen it with my own eyes.  This is real art.”  Dr. Mary Miller, retired Professor of Russian Languages, George Washington University.

“I could not put the book down until I finished it.  This story was a trip down memory lane for me,
bringing to mind familiar scenes from my youth.  It took me on an emotional ride from laughter to tears.”  Jim Mitchell, Jackson, TN.

“What a great book.  We couldn’t put it down.”  Jim and BA Shaver, Aiken, SC.

“I spent a most enjoyable weekend reading “Moonbeams.”   It brought back memories of growing up in
North Carolina.”  The illustrations are so detailed that… after I read the pages, I looked at the pictures and everything was as the words described.  Dr. Pam Dennis, Lambuth University Library Director.

“A must read for everyone.  Excellent writing – entertaining and a good story.”   Bill Ward, Asheville, NC.

aside, not wanting it to end as I savored each word.”  Audrey Murley, Birchwood, WI.
