The companion to the beloved bestseller Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, here is the funny, heartbreaking, and powerfully insightful tale that first introduced Siddalee, Vivi, their spirited Walker clan, and the indomitable Ya-Yas.
Writer, actor, and playwright Rebecca Wells is the author of the New York Times bestsellers Ya-Yas in Bloom, Little Altars Everywhere, and Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, which was made into a feature film. A native of Louisiana, she now lives on an island in the Pacific Northwest.

“Rebecca Wells has written a funny, eloquent and sad novel that easily leaps regional bounds.”
“At the Walker family altar, sainthood is a one-way ticket to purgatory, and getting there is half the fun.”
“Wells’ people pop with life.”
“Wells effectively juxtaposes the innocence and joy of childhood reveries with the pain and guilt of adult memories.”
