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.

What the Critics Say

"Author Rebecca Wells uses her considerable acting talent to perform this abridgment, adding even more spark to her already lively characters. Everyone--Shep, Vivi, Willetta, and the rest--is given a distinct voice, and Wells plays each of them to the hilt. More like a recording of a one-woman show than a mere reading, Altars is an excellent example of how entertaining audiobooks can be." (Amazon.com review)
