The Moonflower Vine

Jetta Carleton

First published in 1962 and called a “rediscovered classic” upon its reissue in 2009, The Moonflower Vine is the story of Matthew and Callie Soames, who raise four headstrong daughters in rural Missouri during the early part of the 20th century.  As each character’s story unfolds, the dynamic that exists below the surface of their seemingly placid existence is revealed.  Beautifully written and richly descriptive, Carleton’s only published novel explores how  members of a deeply religious family struggle with morality as their lives take unexpected turns.
