Come Eat at My Table
Karin Miller has a need to feed everyone. One of her twin daughters always teases her about it, while the other daughter, Faith, realizes there’s more to it than meets the eye. Faith’s suspicions are confirmed when she is assigned a project in school that forces Karin to talk about her past. Most people have pleasant memories from childhood, but not Karin. Instead, she has a lot of secrets that she has managed to keep hidden for twenty years. These secrets have contributed to her vulnerability and lack of self-esteem.
Her husband tries to convince her to talk their girls about it and let it out. Would it be good for the girls to learn more about their mom and why she is the person she is? Until Karin faces her past she and her family cannot face their future. Everyone has things in their life that forms who they are. It’s Karin’s past that has formed who she is.
This is a story about perseverance, love, and especially forgiveness. We can all take the bad things that happen in our lives and turn them around to benefit those with whom we come in contact.
About Ruth O'Neil (Richmond, Virginia Author)
Ruth O’Neil was born and raised in upstate New York and attended Houghton College. She has been a freelance writer/editor for more than twenty years. She has published hundreds of articles in dozens of publications as well as publishing a few books. She has spent the last few years working in publishing, working closely with writers editing their books and preparing them for print. Teaching Writer's Forums to help want-to-be authors break into print with either freelancing or book publishing has been one of her passions.
A couple of years ago she began teaching writing classes at a local homeschool co-op. Here she now teaches younger writers to develop their own freelancing career, write their own novel, or create their own picture book. Teaching the next generation of writers is probably the most fun she's ever had!
