For readers everywhere who are ga-ga for the Ya-Yas and
clamoring for more and for those who are lucky enough to be
discovering the Ya-Yas for the first time, comes a new book about
the incomparable Sisterhood, bursting with life and funnier than
An emotionally charged addition to Rebecca Wells' award-winning
bestseller "Little Altars Everywhere" and #1 "New York Times"
bestseller "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, YA-YAS IN
BLOOM" reveals the roots of the Ya-Yas' friendship in the 1930s and
roars with all the raw power of Vivi Abbott Walker's 1962 T-Bird
through sixty years of marriage, child-raising, and hair-raising
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. Told in alternating voices of Vivi and the Petite
Ya-Yas, Siddalee and Baylor Walker, as well as other denizens of
Thornton, Louisiana, YA-YAS IN BLOOM show 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.
Necies wise credo, "Just think pretty pink and blue thoughts,"
But in the Ya-Yas' inimitable way, these four remarkable women
also teach their children about the Mysteries: the wonder of snow
in the deep South, the possibility that humans are made of stars,
and the belief that miracles do happen. And they need a miracle
when old grudges and wounded psyches lead to a heartbreaking
crime...and the dynamic web of sisterhood is the only safety net
strong enough to hold families together and endure.
After two bestsellers and a blockbuster movie, the Ya-Yas have
become part of American culture -- icons for the power of women's
friendship. YA-YAS IN BLOOM continues the saga, giving us more
Ya-Ya lore, spun out in the rich patois of the Louisiana bayou
country and brim full of the Ya-Ya message to embrace life and each
other with joy.
