Currently Reading...

Well, what a disappointment this book is. The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood brought me to tears several times; Little Altars charmed me. This one bored me. There's nothing there: no passion, no interesting tidbit, no heart. Maybe it's because the book is written as a series of short stories with very little connections between them. You don't get the desperation, the angst, or the sheer joie de vivre that threaded the other two books Rebecca Wells wrote. It feels more like a "let's fill you in on those people's background" report rather than a plunge into some pretty intense lives.

And I'm not alone in that feeling. Reviewers at amazon.com barely give it two stars.

Don't waste your money, or your time, on this sequel.
