Opening chapters of an unpublished novel. Two single mothers a generation apart are the twin protagonists. Loretta, strong and combative, is ferociously protective of Frederick, her mentally handicapped son. Pauline, young, smart, and unsure, manipulates Frederick into committing a crime. Frederick's inability to understand what has happened saves Pauline. A corrupted businessman, a high school basketball star, a bumbling priest, and an African saint are all caught up in the aftermath.
