From the author of Shelter Me comes a novel about having your heart in the right place. Newly divorced Dana Stellgarten has always been unfailingly nice—even to telemarketers—but now her patience is wearing thin. Money is tight, her kids are reeling from their dad’s departure, and her goth teenage niece has just landed on her doorstep. As she enters the slipstream of postdivorce romance and is befriended by the town queen bee, Dana finds that the tension between being true to yourself and being liked doesn’t end in middle school—and that sometimes it takes a real friend to help you embrace adulthood in all its flawed complexity. This is a tender, often humorous, story of rising above the unexpected, sometimes disappointing circumstances of life. Dana is the quintessential everywoman, finding her own voice and inner strength just when she needs it most. Fay has a knack for creating authentic characters whom readers will come to love. With savvy dialogue and compelling emotional insight, Deep Down True is a novel with intelligence and soul.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Engrossing, touching, and immensely satisfying. The truth shines on every page. I’d almost be willing to go back to junior high if I could sit at Juliette Fay’s lunch table!” Beth Harbison, New York Times bestselling author 
“Sincere, powerful, and heartfelt, Deep Down True will resonate with women everywhere…I loved Fay’s true-to-life characters and her ability to portray the intricate dynamics of friendship and family in such an immediately recognizable way. There is a ‘me too’ moment on every page, right down to the satisfying finish.” Emily Giffin, New York Times bestselling author of Something Borrowed and Something Blue
“Enormously readable and hugely relatable!” Kelly Corrigan, New York Times bestselling author of The Middle Place
“When I wasn’t inside the world of this book—because this is a book that you enter instead of merely read—I longed to be. I love it for its intensely human characters and for the way the author grants them their flaws as generously as she celebrates their daily decencies, their persistent hopefulness, their moments of personal grace.” Marisa de los Santos, New York Times bestselling author of Love Walked In
“Deep Down True is ultimately a heartwarming and refreshing novel and a choice pick for public library audiobook collections.” Midwest Book Review
“Familiar material—a newly divorced woman navigating the choppy waters of single parenthood—gets sensitive treatment in this subtle novel by the author of Shelter Me… Expertly walks a heavily trodden path.” Publishers Weekly
“Fay imbues Dana with the smarts and insecurities that war within most of us. With her comfort zone obliterated, Dana draws on her inner strengths to reconstruct a new foundation for her children in a world where she gets to be the alpha wolf. Highly recommended for fans of women’s fiction featuring resilient heroines.” Library Journal
 “Heartwarming, funny, well-penned, unexpectedly suspenseful, this is a solid page-turner, right through to the touching end.” Booklist
