I read Jetta Carleton's first book, The Moonflower Vine back in the sixties when it was a Reader's Digest condensed book. I loved it.

This book was not published until after her death. I didn't like it as much as her previous book. I did think that it was well written. It tells the story of a young woman who gets a job at a junior college just before the outbreak of World War II. She gets in trouble with the administration when it is rumored that she is having an inappropriate relationship with two of her male students. In the end she has to decide whether she wants to be conventional and remain at the college or follow her heart and do other things.

Barbara Cervantes Esmeralda, I felt the same way about Clair de Lune. I have a hard time even believing that the incredible author,Jetta Carleton even wrote it. It's nothing like her style. The Moonflower Vine was brilliant and rich in it's discription of everything around this deeply dramatic family saga and told so beautifully. I've read it so many times over the years. That's how wonderful it is and how much I love it. I think somebody is trying to pull a fast one by saying Clair de Lune is a long-lost novel of hers. I don't believe it.
