Big disappointment after the Divine Secrets. ( )

I read this after DSYYS and liked it even better. Let me know how things started and understand why things became the way they did. Wonderful southern fiction that makes you feel it's not fiction at all. ( )

Probably my least favorite Ya-ya book. It was a little harder to like Vivi in this one. I don't think there was a whole lot of explanation for why she was the way she was. ( )

This book blew me away and I could hardly wait to get my hands on the second one, Divine Secrets of the YaYa Sisterhood. Actually, I think Little Alters is the best of the two. The film combined the two and was titled after the second book. Though in no way the same writing style, the story, hard, honest, and southern, smacks of Reynolds Priceness. You can't help but want to understand the most imperfect characters. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0060759968, Paperback)

"It can wear you to a nub, trying to be a popular person and a good Catholic all at the same time." So says Sidda, one of the characters inhabiting Little Altars Everywhere. Author Rebecca Wells uses her considerable acting talent to perform this abridgment, adding even more spark to her already lively characters. Everyone--Shep, Vivi, Willetta, and the rest--is given a distinct voice, and Wells plays each of them to the hilt. More like a recording of a one-woman show than a mere reading, Altars is an excellent example of how entertaining audiobooks can be. (Running time: 3 hours, 2 cassettes) --C.B. Delaney
