Summary
Noon and her husband Herbie find two girls on their doorstep--one an infant and the other a five-year-old. They keep the girls, who grow up loving one another like sisters, then splitting in a rivalry over a property developer and the prospect of having their neighborhood torn up by a freeway. Eventually they are reconciled by Ethel, a hell of a blues singer who seems to exist at the heart of everything the girls have been searching for
Summary
Raising two abandoned children while trying to cope with the romantic adventures of her irresponsible husband, Noon leads her community in efforts to defeat a proposal for a new road that threatens to destroy the community
