This story is about the first family of the Ya-Yas, Siddalee and her siblings, their alcoholic mother and distant dad. It has sections on each family members POV which helps the reader to see how the dysfunction came to be, beginning with the previous generation.

I enjoyed the book, just as I enjoyed the Ya-Ya sisterhood novel, and the subsequent one about the children of the Ya-Yas. This was published in 2005. Rebecca Wells is a talented writer that keeps the reader engaged, enthralled and enthusiastic. I rate it high on my favorite fiction list!

Wonderful book! It brought back a lot of memories. I'm glad I read it before 'Divine Secrets'.

Siddalee Walker, a successful New York theater director, takes turns with her family in telling the story of their Louisiana upbringing, their experiences in the classrooms of the Penguins of Our Lady of the Divine Compassion, and the anguishes of childhood.

Another cutesy book and fast read by Rebecca Wells.

This books is described as a companion to to the Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood. While it contains our key players in Ya Ya and funny I didn't feel it was as entertaining as Ya Ya was.
However, I did feel it provided background information that was missing from Ya Ya. It told the stories of why some people were the way they were which helped me understand Ya Ya a little more.

Good book, I enjoyed it quite a bit, much better than ''Divine secrets of the Ya-ya Sisterhood'' which I had trouble finishing.
