"This charismatic book draws the listener into the lives of Vivi, Big Shep, Sidda and all the other characters from THE DIVINE SECRETS OF THE YA-YA SISTERHOOD. We hear about life in Thornton, Louisiana, along with reminiscences of adventures, trials and tribulations, all in exquisite Southern accents that are melodious and lulling in their tones. Yet they force the listener to pay attention to what the words mean, sorting accent from meaning. Wells's vivid characters spring out of the audiobook and into life. M.B.K.
