Book Review: Deep Down True, by Juliette Fay

What do you do when your cozy family life is suddenly shattered by a betrayal? That’s what Dana Stellgarten must figure out when her husband leaves her for a younger woman, leaving Dana to raise their two kids and find a way to cope financially. Suddenly, she has assumed several new roles, including single mother, breadwinner, and employee. Meanwhile, her kids aren’t handling the changes very well, especially her daughter, who is showing signs of bulimia. And to add to the chaos, Dana’s teenage niece asks to stay with them because she’s not getting along with her mom, Dana’s sister. Watch this video as author Juliette Fay describes the plot of her new novel, Deep Down True.

As a former single mom, I could really relate to Dana’s plight. She has many insecurities about being a good mother, dating again, and finding a job. She feels out of place being alone at social gatherings. She’s not really sure who she is now that she’s no longer somebody’s wife. But through it all, Dana realizes that this is a time of growth and self-discovery. She gains confidence in realizing that she can handle the trials in her life and even excels in areas she’d never ventured into before. Deep Down True is a true-to-life novel about new beginnings, self-growth, families and friendship. By the end of the book, you’ll be glad you joined Dana Stellgarten on this journey.
