Come Eat at My Table

(What a Difference a Year Makes)

By Ruth O’Neil

Karin is a woman with a past. About the time she thinks no one will ever know, it comes back to haunt her. The deeper she tries to push it away the more prominently it returns. Forgiveness is a word that isn’t in her vocabulary as far as the people from her past are concerned. She thinks she’s fine until someone from her past shows up unexpectedly forcing her to think about what happened. With the help of her family and other people around her she realizes that she must learn to forgive, even if forgiveness wasn’t asked of her.

Reminiscing is one similarity. Come Eat at My Table is a lot about dealing with your past, even if the reminiscing isn’t so fun.

About the Author

Vicky Kaseorg, describes when she first knew she would become an author: “I used to ride my horse through the neighborhood, though all the neighbors could see was a girl on a blue bicycle. My brain rarely paused in the internal narration of stories. I should have known I would either end up in an institution, or become a writer.”

Kaseorg, born in Pennsylvania in 1956, studied art and writing at Binghamton University, and became a professional artist early in her career. She went on to graduate school at USC Los Angeles where she studied Occupational Therapy. She owned her own Occupational Therapy practice for many years in NY, and with the birth of her prodigiously gifted first son, began homeschooling. She has bicycled across the USA, run a marathon, completed a biathlon, learned to ski at age 50, successfully graduated all three children from homeschool to prestigious universities, yet still feels the most difficult task she has ever had to accomplish “is living a consistent, righteous life before God and my family.”

A cool invention …
And the hardest question anyone has ever been asked.

An Arrow In Flight

(Seven Archangels Book 1)

By Jane Lebak

Ever since Adam left the garden, Gabriel has known why humans sometimes act irrationally, and he helps them without hesitation whenever God gives him an assignment. All seven Archangels of the Presence do as much, sometimes even without orders — whether it’s redirecting a lovesick princess, encouraging a terrified hero, or dealing with an amulet-wielding old man who’s compelling an unlikely service from the angel least likely to give it.

But after a brutal attack during one assignment, Gabriel starts getting touchy and harder to deal with. The other angels love him, but it’s been going on for centuries, and he won’t take redirection.

Then God gives Gabriel an assignment that could result in the destruction of Jerusalem, and Gabriel makes the wrong decision.

God forces Gabriel out of Heaven. He’s got one year now to make things right between him and God, except he can’t possibly do enough. He’s isolated from the other angels and being propositioned by demons. Even worse, as Gabriel wanders the Earth trying to change others’ lives for the better, it’s becoming more and more obvious that the one thing he needs to change is the only one he never wanted to risk.

An Arrow In Flight features each of the seven Archangels of the Presence in their own short stories, from Abraham to the fall of Nineveh, all leading up to a long-story crisis that requires each working in unison to help Gabriel when he doesn’t seem to want their help at all.
