Title: Bread for the Table

Author: Tara Botel Doherty

Release Date: 6 January 2017

Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble

Summary: 

Bread for the Table relates a single day in the life of Sage a 30-year-old aspiring jewelry designer working as a waitress in a pseudo New York deli in Los Angeles. As postcard from her mother triggers a series of flashbacks, which bring Sage’s life into focus.

She remembers her protector – dear older sister, Rose of Sharon and her untimely death; her remote father, whose only communication was reading passages from novels written by John Steinbeck; her grandmother, the only consistent figure in Sage’s life; and her mother.

The last time Sage and her mother shared an intimate moment was stirring a pot of soup shortly after Rose of Sharon’s death. Her mother’s last instructions before she went to buy bread to complement the soup were to keep stirring the soup so it wouldn’t burn. Dutifully Sage storied, but her mother never returned. She was five years old. Now she has received a postcard from a woman she hasn’t seen in twenty-five years.

Summary: 

FIGHTING FIRE WITH FIRE IS FOR THE FAITHLESS
One dedicated youth pastor will soon know the reason why

Shortly after relocating his family to the sweet tea-obsessed town of Sumlyn, Missouri, things start to unravel for a dedicated youth pastor. Hawes Trainor has always gone where he’s called without question. And the move to a satellite church from Newhall, CA is no different save for the well-being of his young daughter, Danielle. Affectionately called “D” by her dad, the twelve-year-old soon lands in the local hospital under the watchful eye of the mysterious Dr. Grove. For Hawes and his school teacher wife, Angela, the situation soon spins out of control. He may call the shots, but Angela was nearly selected for the Space Shuttle Challenger, coming within only a few teachers of the fateful mission. She has dreams of her own, yet must put them aside to figure out why D isn’t coming out of the hospital. It’s the end of 1985 and the Challenger is getting closer to launch. Will it be one disaster after the next for the youth pastor of unshakable faith? Read In Defense of Knowing by Charles Mahoney and travel back thirty years to when Ronald Reagan was President and there was still a Cold War going on. Experience good versus evil in this “absolutely chilling” tale from one of the most inventive novelists working today.
