Ya Yas in Bloom by Rebecca Wells

Well, a few months back I received a box containing 10 copies of Ya Yas in Bloom by Rebecca Wells. So I thought about having a book discussion group for the book. Well, the discussion part never really happened but I've given out copies of the book to a bunch of girls. Maybe we'll end up talking about it someday when they each come into the library again.

In the meantime I started reading it and I enjoy it because each chapter can stand on its own when it tells a different event in the lives of the Ya Yas, four women who are close friends, and their children.

It's set in the south in the 1950s and 60s so it's a different time and place which is a nice change of pace from the fantasy and realistic fiction I've been reading.
