The Good Daughters by Joyce Maynard
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Ruth and Dana were born on the same day in the same town but into two very different families. Ruth's family has farmed the same piece of property for generations. Dana's family flits from one place to another, always chasing the next big idea, none of which ever seem to pan out. And yet their lives intertwine, thanks to a Big Secret they don't discover until the end of the book (but which I figured out almost at the beginning). The book is really a story of the lives of the two women struggling to figure out who they are and how they fit in to their worlds.
For readers' advisors: character doorway, and be aware that there is a fair amount of sexual content, although nothing explicit
