In 1858 a tree is felled that will become a table In 1921 widowed immigrant Knute Kirkeborg is trying to eke out a living farming the harsh North Dakota prairie supporting seven daughters and two sons Daughter Joann hides under the huge kitchen table as she mourns her mother who died in a Hospital for the InsaneIn 1943 Joann is left at home with her toddler Sapphire Eve while husband Nels serves in the navy yet Joann has no idea how to be a mother because her own mother was always too busy with the baby Her parenting style is detached to the point of emotional neglect because she never learned otherwise As a result Saffee doesn t learn either The Painted Table isn t a conventional novel Rather it is selecting vignettes through Joann and Saffee s lives that show the family story As a result at times it feels as though nothing is happening It s a curious techniue literary than genre and sometimes it s difficult to tell whether the main character in the story is Joann Saffee or mental illness This lack of clarity around plot and character did mean the story dragged in places as I was wondering when something was going to happen I wanted to like The Painted Table The writing is different to what we normally see in Christian fiction and part of me wanted to like the literary style And I wanted to like it because it s different not the typical western or Amish romance that makes up so much of Christian fiction I wanted something that was a little challenging but that I would find ultimately rewarding It had potential but in the end I didn t enjoy it because there was too little plot too little character development and too much theme Thanks to Thomas Nelson and Booksneeze for providing a free ebook for review
