The Dicine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood. Written by Rebecca Wells, tells the story of a mother and daughter, the mother belonging to a sisterhood, or secret society of women. Theese women did daring things and were all from the south. The daughter doesn't understand the bond theese women share and struggles getting along with her alcholic mother. The author uses direct dialogue and letters written by the charectors to tell the story. This book in my opinion, reveals the hidden relationship between a mother and daughter. This relationship isn't commonly publisized. You can feel the emotion in her describing words of incidents occuring between the sisterhood. Most of the conversastions reflect southern dialogue which comforts a reader who just so happens to be from the south. In reading this book I learn the importance of a bond between mother and daughter and appreciate the story as well as the climax of the situations and the "Strange" community the sisterhood have. The atmosphere descibed in this book is a warm country type of living set in the summer time mostly and makes the reader feel warm and comforted. For me it was emotional at times sad and happy but mostly a happy story.
