When four year old Teensy Whitman stuffs a pecan up her nose, she sets off the chain of events that lead her to become true sister-friends with Caro, Vivi and Necie - the original Ya-Ya Sisterhood.

Now they're back, in love, and at war with convention. Discover the roots of the Ya-Yas' friendship, and roar through sixty years of marriage, child-raising and hair-raising family secrets. In the Ya-Yas' own inimitable way, these four remarkable women teach their children about the Mysteries: the wonder of snow in the Deep South, the possibility that humans are made of stars, and the belief that miracles do happen. And they need a miracle when old grudges and wounded psyches lead to a heartbreaking crime - and the dynamic web of sistergood is the only safety net strong enough to endure.

Through crises of faith and hilarious lapses of parenting skills, brushes with alcoholism and glimpses of the dark reality of racial bigotry, the Ya-Ya values of unconditional loyalty, family bonds, hig style and Cajun sass shine through.

Given to charity - decluttering because I'm moving! And I know I won't get around to reading this, so someone else can :)
