Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood : Novel, A by Rebecca Wells( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Siddalee Walker, oldest daughter of Vivi Abbott Walker, Ya-Ya extraordinaire, is interviewed in the New York Times about a hit play she's directed, her mother gets described as a "tap-dancing child abuser." Enraged, Vivi disowns Sidda. Devastated, Sidda begs forgiveness, and postpones her upcoming wedding. All looks bleak until the Ya-Yas step in and convince Vivi to send Sidda a scrapbook of their girlhood mementos, called "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood." As Sidda struggles to analyze her mother, she comes face to face with the tangled beauty of imperfect love, and the fact that forgiveness, more than understanding, is often what the heart longs for. Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood may call to mind Prince of Tides in its unearthing of family darkness; in its unforgettable heroines and irrepressible humor and female loyalty, it echoes Fannie Flagg's Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe

"Sidda Lee Walker est une jeune et brillante dramaturge qui a fait carrière à New York, loin de sa Louisiane natale et de Vivi, sa mère excentrique, dont elle ne supportait plus les facéties. Piégée par une journaliste de "Time Magazine", Sidda se laisse aller à critiquer Vivi, provoquant ainsi la fureur de celle-ci. La dispute tourne au drame, menaçant de faire éclater les relations, passablement tendues, des deux femmes ainsi que les projets matrimoniaux de Sidda. Les trois amies intimes de Vivi, Caro, Necie et Teensy, prennent alors les choses en main. Durant leur jeunesse, ces exubérantes et intrépides femmes formèrent avec Vivi le clan des "petites Ya-Ya", un quatuor dont la complicité s'est encore renforcée au fil de cinq décennies. Pour l'aider à renouer le dialogue entre Vivi et sa fille, les trois Ya-Ya kidnappent Sidda et entreprennent de lui révéler le vrai visage de sa mère..."
