From the author of Shelter Me, a novel about having your heart in the right place even when everything else isn’t.
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.
Would you listen to Deep Down True again? Why?
I would. I read this book at the same time as I was listening to
Erik Larson's "In the Garden of Beasts" and it was a breath of fresh air.
The characters are all engaging and portrayed realistically. The story is neither
sad nor happy, but felt real. Tha narrator was terrific.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I liked most of the characters in the story.
What does Robynn Rodriguez bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
She has a lovely voice with a certain joyous quality. I really enjoyed listening to her.

So enjoyed listening to this story. Will find more books on audible by Juliette Fay.
I really enjoyed how relatable the characters are. I thought it was a bit slow in the beginning but it lulls you in and keeps you entertained until the end.
