An emotionally charged addition to Rebecca Wells LITTLE ALTARS EVERYWHERE and DIVINE SECRETS OF THE YA-YA SISTERHOOD, YA-YAS IN BLOOM reveals the roots of the Ya-Yas' friendship.
A great read for those summer beach days!!
This is an assortment of stories about the Ya Yas and their children (the Petite Ya Yas) that give the reader more details into the history of the Ya Yas. It touches on memories mentioned in Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood and goes one step further into them. A very quick read, but a good read. If you enjoyed Divine Secrets, you should try this one out as well.
If you have read any Ya Ya books you will enjoy this book.The book really has no story it just gives the reader more insight into the Ya Ya's,and their offspring,"The Petite Ya Ya's.Nothing can compare to the first book,but it's still a fun read.
There is a song by They Might Be Giants called #3, this books reminds me of that. It goes "There is only 2 songs in me and I just wrote 3rd, don't how I got the inspration or how I found the words..."
This book is really just a rehashing of Little Alters and Divine Secrets. This didn't not tell anything new, just said the same things over and over. It was like the best of the Ya-ya books.
I was disapointed, it was Ms. Well has one story and she just keeps telling over and over.
She is just stuck with these people in the early 60's. It is a shame.
With such rich materal and the title of the book, I was hoping to read about these women when they were growing up and becoming women and mothers. All I got was the same stuff over and over.
It would have been nice to hear about the childhood,and high school and the years before marrage when Vivi and Caro were in New York and how they met their husbands and how they became mothers.
That is what in Bloom means to me, to become somthing, not to hear the same stories over and over again from a 68 yr old women and thier 30 something children about things that happen in the 60's.
A disapointment to say the least.
