Quotes & Awards

  • “A hilarious and heartbreaking first novel.”


  • “Deceptively simple with its first-person narratives and everyday language, the story explores such weighty issues as the loss of innocence, the traditional roles of women in the South, and the plight of farmers.”

    " While this explains a lot of Vivi's excentricities Iit just didn't have the unity of the first book. "

    " Not as good as Ya-Ya Sisterhood, but interesting as it shows different sides of the Walker clan, from different times and places. Still a wonderful book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Sooz | 2/13/2014

    " This is the initial book put out by Rebecca Wells, the author of The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, which was such a hit with book clubs about ten years ago, and also a movie. This books is about the same characters; however, we get a deeper insight into the childhoods of the four children of Shep and Vivi Walker. The Ya-Ya sisterhood was romanticized in "Divine Secrets", only hinting at the character of Vivi Walker, who was not a stellar parental figure. In "Little Altars", more of this was revealed. A fast, compelling read, though. "
