PRAISE 

"...complex, evocative and nuanced....the richly-drawn characters in I Meant To Tell You are both wholly human and wholly believable; humor and pathos seamlessly intertwine in this resonant and revealing narrative"-- The Indypendent newspaper, September 25, 2022

 

“Fran Hawthorne delivers a nuanced exploration of the connections among women – and how they can unravel when lies of omission are revealed… I Meant to Tell You kept me turning the pages late into the night.” —Jennifer Coburn, USA Today best-selling author of Cradles of the Reich

 

“Fran Hawthorne has written a wise, kind, and above all compassionate novel about the secrets we keep and the judgments we make.” —Yona Zeldis McDonough, Fiction Editor of Lilith 

 

"The story remains upbeat and it is a fairly quick read, but provides food for thought. It would be a terrific book club pick."—The Rose City Reader, November 30, 2022

I Meant to Tell You opens with a white lie, a small dishonesty. But it widens to reveal that the people we think we know may all be hiding behind convenient mistruths. In that way it is a compelling portrait of our times, stuffed with richly drawn characters and alive with sharp and glimmering prose. A literary page-turner.” —Brian Castleberry, author of Nine Shiny Objects (long-listed for the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction)

 

“An absorbing, beautifully told story about how tenaciously we hang onto family myths --and how, once one secret is revealed, other truths come into the light.” —Janice Steinberg, author of The Tin Horse (winner, San Diego Book Award)
