Senate's relatable story involves two sisters struggling to secure their future while gaining closure on their past. Her writing has matured and is smooth, flowing easily as she moves within timeframes and storylines. Senate broaches heavy topics of single motherhood, abandonment and true love, and does so with a flourish of witty, complicated and realistic characters, subtle humor and emergent relationships.

Ruby Miller's twin sister, Stella, urges her to cross the country
in search of the father of Stella's
baby and to give Ruby time to rethink
her engagement. Ruby agrees but
isn't prepared for her sister's uncharacteristic insight, long-lost relatives and uncovered family secrets. By the time they hit Nevada, Ruby's questioning her entire life and decisions that could cause irrevocable damage. Hurting
for her sister, torn between the fiance
she insists she loves and a fantasy
man who wants more, she doesn't
know which path to choose. (Red Dress Ink, Jun., 304 pp., $13.95)
