The Tropic of Cancer refers to an imaginary line above the equator, the farthest point north where the sun can still appear directly overhead. This happens once a year at midday in June, the day Tropic Of Orange begins.

Orange - Gabriel's House
"And there had been one additional attraction: the location. It was masked exactly by a sign on the highway shoulder beyond the house: Tropic of Cancer. In Gabriel's mind the Tropic ran through his place like a good metaphor. If it were good enough for the Tropic, it was good enough for Gabriel" (pg. 5).
