Twenty-five years have passed since we last visited the six Walker sisters from Memphis, Tennessee, and they’re all back on the phone again for another crisis-filled weekend. The most immediate concern: Mama has taken off all her clothes in the community room of her nursing room and the sisters must put their heads together and decide what to do with her. And that’s just for starters: oldest sister Peggy has been bilked out of all her money by a ne’er-do-well boyfriend. Aneece and Paige’s marriages are on the rocks. Audrey continues to mourn the death of both her husband and her only child by climbing inside a bottle. Sherry is still trying to earn the respect of her sisters after so many years of being the free-spirited family laughingstock. And Roseanne, after three failed marriages to three minister husbands, has lost both her religious faith and the faith she’s always put in her family. To top it all off, a cousin has asked all six Walker siblings to “beta-taste” her new candy, with mutually disastrous gastrointestinal results. The sequel to Belles
, Dunn’s most popular comedy-drama, Belles: The Reunion
will appeal to both those who’ve already fallen in love with the Walkers, as well as audiences discovering these telephone-tethered women for the very first time.
