This entertaining tale begins with a typical state more people find themselves in than we'd like to admit. Dealing with anger, disappointment and pain, Dana, a newly single mom of two children, (7 and 12), carries on with her chaotic life after her husband abandons her for a younger woman..THE CAD! The characters have all the ingredients of real life people, with flaws and afflictions but also warmth, humor, and caring to hold your attention throughout. Everyday life is a soap opera that incorporates excitement, deep emotion, tragedy, frustrations, love, worry, and humor that ultimately brings harmony. A satisfying ending with healing, strength, and forgiveness makes you close the book with a smile. This is a storyline all ages can get something out of. You won't be disappointed.

After reading Juliette Fay's previous novel "Shelter Me", I could not wait for her next book to come out. When it was finally released I had just gotten my Nook and it was my 1st purchase. "Deep Down True" does not even come remotely close to the quality, emotion and humor produced in her previous novel. It was just okay. Really nothing special. Each chapter seemed to repeat the character's thoughts over and over just to fill up pages.

    A very good read. The characters are like people in your neighborhood or kids' schools and Mrs. Fay understands the nuances of letting go of our children slowly but surely. By the end of the book, I really did find myself hoping for the best for each character. Some of the scenes are laugh out loud funny too. I will read another of her books!

    Good read!

    A little slow to start... ended up being a great read. I actually was a bit dissapointed that it had to end!

    Lacking draw

    I enjoyed this author's first book Shelter Me, that I looked forward to this book's release. While this book has some interesting characters and topics, I feel it lacked the draw/spark of Shelter Me and found myself disappointed when I finished the book.
