About the book:

From the New York Times bestselling author of Little Altars Everywhere comes an incandescent novel brimming with unforgettable characters, family secrets, aching longing, and incisive humor.

When theatre director Siddalee Walker inadvertently reveals some of the less-savory facts of her Louisiana childhood to the New York Times, the article brands her mother, Vivi, a "tap-dancing child abuser." Vivi virtually disowns Sidda, but Vivi's intrepid gang of lifelong friends, the Ya-Yas, sashay in and conspire to bring everyone back together. The Ya-Yas persuade Vivi to send Sidda a scrapbook of their girlhood mementos -- entitled "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood."

Through a series of flashbacks from Sidda's current crisis to Vivi's youth and early motherhood, the "Divine Secrets" reveal themselves through Rebecca Wells' vibrant, irresistible voice, and provide an incisive look at the tangled and emotional relationship between mother and daughter.
