Two parallel stories set in the swamps of eastern Texas meet. One story begins 1,000 years before the other when the daughter of Grandmother Moccasin, a shape-shifter, falls in love with a human and gives up her serpent form. Grandmother’s jealousy over her daughter’s happiness leads to her daughter’s death. Hawk Man, the daughter’s husband, imprisons Grandmother in a jar and buries the jar under a loblolly pine tree. In the present day story, a calico cat's owners abandon it by the roadside. The lonely baying song of an old hound dog brings her to a tilted house that has only known cruelty and sorrow, but there she bears her kittens and finds love. The dog, the cat, and the kittens live under the house's porch- in the "holy underneath." The only dark spot in their lives in Gar Face, an angry man who kills and skins animals to buy the alcohol that keeps him alive. Gar-Face wages an age-old battle with the ancient swamp alligator. Ranger, the hound dog, warns the cat that Gar-Face will use the kittens as bait if he catches them. Heedless of the danger, the kitten Puck can’t resist the warm sunshine of Gar-Face’s broken yard. One day, Gar-Face catches him and his mother when she tries to defend her kitten. The cruel man throws them in the river. Puck survives and finds refuge in the roots of a loblolly pine tree where Grandmother Moccasin has been imprisoned in her jar for over 1,000 years. When fate frees her, the snake chooses to help the innocent animals imprisoned by Gar Face.

The night of the blue moon held so much promise for Keeper's friends and family. Mr. Beauchamp's night-blooming cereus will burst into color and fragrance. Dogie will sing his two-word song to Cigne-- "Marry me. Marry me." And they will all feast on Cigne's wonderful crab gumbo. Unfortunately, none of these wonderful events happened on blue moon night. The day's disasters start with ten "stupid crabs" that clack and snip and call to Keeper's mer-blood and beg to be set free. She races to do their bidding before Cigne returns from town. Then, one bad thing after another happens until Keeper has destroyed all of the beautiful things that were supposed to take place on Blue Moon Day. Not able to face the people she wronged, Keeper runs away on the high tide in search of her mermaid mother who swam away from her seven years before.
