Publisher's Summary

An emotionally charged addition to Rebecca Wells' award-winning best seller Little Altars Everywhere and number-one New York Times best seller Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, Ya-Yas in Bloom reveals the roots of the Ya-Yas' friendship in the 1930s and roars through 60 years of marriage, children, and hair-raising family secrets. When four-year-old Teensy Whitman prisses one time too many and stuffs a big old pecan up her nose, she sets off the chain of events that lead Vivi, Teensy, Caro, and Necie to become true sister-friends. Ya-Yas in Bloom shows us the Ya-Yas in love and at war with convention.
Through crises of faith and hilarious lapses of parenting skills, brushes with alcoholism and glimpses of the dark reality of racial bigotry, the Ya-Ya values of unconditional loyalty, high style, and Cajun sass shine through at a time when the dynamic web of sisterhood is the only safety net strong enough to hold families together and endure.

Critic Reviews

"A very entertaining and, ultimately, deeply moving novel about the complex bonds between mother and daughter." ( Washington Post)
"Every bit as joyful as the original...Uplifting, uproarious, saucy, and smart...lives up to the highest expectations." ( Booklist)
