The Painted Table Review

"The Painted Table' by Suzanne Fields is a book that is very haunting in it's tale of redemption. I suppose it is realistic - the telling of a dysfunctional family life that passes down through generations. Emotional scars that wear on the children in the story. Mental instability that affects women throughout the story.

This book was a difficult read. I really ached for the children in this story. It is a multi-generational story that I just wanted to end because of the difficulties in the lives of the characters. But then, finally, Saffee, one of the children in the story, finds hope. She finds hope at church and she finds hope in friends outside of her home. She finds hope in a young man who truly brings her out of the mess of her family life.

This story isn't sappy. Although the story is heartbreaking, it's a great read. It's just emotional. And beautiful. Very well-written. And I do recommend it to readers.

Thank you to Litfuse Publicity and Thomas Nelson for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
