A special Mother's Day boxed set of Rebecca Wells's two New York Times-bestselling novels of the Ya-Yas and the Walker Clan, including a new Note to the Reader.

Both Little Altars Everywhere and Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, chronicling the touching, funny, beguiling Walker family of Thornton, Louisiana, have been phenomenal critical and popular hits. Little Altars Everywhere, the first book, began life as a small-press, word-of-mouth cult classic in 1992, went on to win the Western States Book Award, and was included in the anthology Five Hundred Great Books by Women (Penguin, 1994). It followed Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood onto the New York Times bestseller list in 1998. The 1996 sequel, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, sparked the creation of Ya-Ya clubs around the country, and inspired Terry McMillan (San Francisco Chronicle) to exclaim, "I read the first two pages and I said, 'I haven't heard a white woman talk like this in literature before.'"

Writer, actor, and playwright Rebecca Wells is the author of the New York Times bestsellers Ya-Yas in Bloom, Little Altars Everywhere, and Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, which was made into a feature film. A native of Louisiana, she now lives on an island in the Pacific Northwest.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sadly disappointed I watched the Divine Secrets of the Yaya Sisterhood when it first came out in video and loved the movie. Unfortunately, I could not even finish the 1st book, Little Altars Everywhere, as I found it very disturbing and somewhat depressing. It was not the funny & whimsical book I was led to believe it may be. I realize the movie reflected some of the troubles within their lives and, however the book is even more graphic. I returned all 3 this morning; I couldn't finish Little Altars, and didn't even begin the next two. I have only ever returned 1 book before in my life that was really bad, and I'm sad to say this was the second time. I'm sure many people may enjoy the series but it was just 'too disturbing' for me.

From Our Editors

A perfect gift for the many members of the widespread Ya-Ya sisterhood, Rebecca Wells’ wonderful boxed set includes her two internationally best-selling novels, Little Altars Everywhere and Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. The Southern belles in the Walker clan and their rich lives and loves are beloved by women readers everywhere, sparking up reading groups and Web sites. Wells’ knack for describing life in the Louisiana bayou with a warmth and humour recalls such great "chick-lit" authors as Terry MacMillian. The Ya-Ya Boxed Set contains the two complete novels and a new note to the reader by the author.
