  • Juanita - 40-50 (with the ability to transition to herself 20 years younger): owner of the Five & Dime; a simple Texas woman who is guided by her religious convictions.
  • Mona (then) - late teens: naive and deeply romantic; imagines herself as different and better than the small town people she grew up with.
  • Mona - 30s: Fragile; she prefers to live in a dream world and in her memories; has remained in this small town and has changed very little in 20 years.
  • Sissy (then) - late teens; early 20s; a young girl with dreams of getting out of this small town; aware of her sexuality.
  • Sissy - 30s: vivacious and outgoing with a quick wit; she appears to be only concerned about her attractiveness and having a good time, but has unexpected depths.
  • Joe - late teens; sensitive and confused; misunderstood by most except for Mona and Sissy.
  • Joanne - 30s; mysterious visitor with a big secret; sensual; raised in the area, but escaped to live a different kind of life.
  • Stella Mae - 30s; loud and boisterous; she appears to have been one of the success stories of the group, but covers up her regrets and longings.
  • Edna Louise - 30s; pregnant with her 7th child; shy and awkward; simply sweet-natured.
