Samuel’s latest novel features India, a 40-year-old Web designer, and her sexy mother, Eldora, who leave Colorado on a road trip in a 1957 Thunderbird to look for India’s schizophrenic twin, Gypsy. As they travel through New Mexico on the way to Las Vegas, they pass through historic villages, searching homeless shelters along the way. Bernadette Dunne’s pleasantly unobtrusive voice captures India’s conflicts over an unplanned pregnancy and unresolved romance, and her acceptance of the bizarre revelations made by Eldora. Fortunately, Dunne does not resort to unbelievable gruffness to depict India’s Irish beau; instead she uses an Irish lilt that works well in making this an engaging performance.
