The Painted Table

Honoring Mother—by not becoming her

Saffee Quimbly has always sensed her “normal” Quimbly household was far from normal. A television? No need. Having friends over? A mistake not to be repeated. Unreasonable expectations and criticism? Painfully expected. And all part of “normal.” But her mother’s unpredictable spells of arguing with imaginary tormentors, a Norwegian heirloom table subjected to countless layers of paint during such fits, and her father’s refusal to seek help for his unstable wife—these too are “normal.” Saffee meets the wide-open world with these secrets stowed away, and she plans to keep things that way. Jack, a blind date gone right, helps Saffee gain victory over the past, and connect to spiritual moorings.

The Painted Table encourages readers to look for the gifts their troubled loved ones have left behind. Suzanne Field is authentic and vulnerable, and radiates a warm connection with God in a novel that fictionalizes events from her own life. This book is therapeutic help for those who come from dysfunctional families.
