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.

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.

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.

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.

a very delightful book, not as "Ya-Ya" as the first one, this book is broken up into separate stories that somehow lead from one to another.

Not bad. Definitely not "Little Altars" good, but still pretty good. If you're a Ya-Ya addict, it's definitely one for the collection.

I really liked it. The first two had some happy stories, and some not too happy stories. This one focused more on the funny and happy times. I enjoyed it and hope it isn'tt he last!!

. . . 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.

It was good to be with the Ya-Yas again. This book felt lighter than the previous two. Less emotional and more just a story. This is a hardcover book.

This is the third book in the "Ya-Yas Series." It goes into more detail about how the Ya-Yas met, their early years, life as young mothers, and life as women of mature age. Each chapter contains a story about the Ya-Yas, typically told from a different POV than the last chapter, and time progresses from past to present (1990s). The first part of the book (it's divided into four sections) is probably the most entertaining. This is the part that discusses how the Ya-Yas got together & their childhood spent together. Another interesting part I felt deals with two characters that weren't even Ya-Yas. One chapter deals with the girl that Siddalee & friends used to make fun of & what happened to her when she grew up and other chapter deals with that girls' mother & her interactions with the Ya-Yas. Although these two chapters weren't directly related to the Ya-Yas, they were interesting in that they present the Ya-Ya's lifestyle from the eyes of an outsider. That's not to say that the other sections aren't good, they just aren't as memorable. Though the last chapter about Christmas revels more about Necie's husband, who was often out of place in all the other stories in the series, and I found that interesting. All-in-all, if you want to know more about the Ya-Yas, then by all means read this book. It doesn't really present any shocking revelations, but it does help round out the characters from the first two books of the series.

Excellen condition. Author of the NYT bestseller "The Ya-Ya Sisterhood." This book is a good start to the Ya-Ya trio of books, as it reveals the roots of the Ya-Ya's friendship in the 1930's and roars through sixty years of marriage, children, and hair-raising family secrets. Story is told through crises of faith and hilarious lapses of parenting skills, glimpses of racial bigotry and Cajun sass. Ya-Ya Sisterhood was a blockbuster movie.

More stories of growing up in an eccentric tribe of Louisiana women from the author of "Little Altars Everywhere" and "Devine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood". Rebecca Wells still knows how to tell stories. This one lacked the drama and intensity of the first two but its an opportunity to learn more about the Petit Ya-Ya's and their Très Petits.

hardcover...I've read this and really loved it, but now it sits- awaiting the next reader. If you like the Ya Ya Sisterhood books, then you must have her latest novel.

I actually didn't enjoy this book as much as the first Book. This may have hit too close to home but it was very angry and kind of depressing. I don't know if there is an autobiographical slant to her books but this book seemed personal. It's didn't flow smoothly and seemed a bit scattered. It was almost as if she was trying to weave a filament of her own life with the story and characters we met in the "Divine Secrets" book
