Publisher's Summary

Little Altars Everywhere is the New York Times best-selling companion to Rebecca Wells' celebrated novel Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. Told in the alternating voices of Vivi and her husband, Big Shep, along with Sidda, her siblings Little Shep, Lulu, and Baylor, as well as the almost-but-not-quite family Cheney and Willetta, Wells embraces nearly 30 years of life on their plantation in Thornton, Louisiana, where the cloying air of the bayou and a web of family secrets at once shelters, traps, and defines an utterly original community of souls.Little Altars Everywhere is an insightful, piercing, and unflinching evocation of childhood, a loving tribute to the transforming power of faith, and a thoroughly fresh chronicle of a family that is as haunted as it is blessed.

I just finished listening to Little Alters... and had that sinking feeling in my heart having to part with it's characters, it's stories, the narrator, the author. This very profound and touching storyline is presented in a dynamic yet very subtle way. The narrator's rendition is heavenly and perfectly complements the theme. I have also loved Lily Ponder and will definitely download other titles from the Wells/Ivey team! You should too!
