[Santa Ana, Calif.] : Books on Tape, 2004.
The Pulitzer Prize winning author of "The color purple", "Possessing the secret of joy", and "The temple of my familiar" now gives us a beautiful new novel that is at once a deeply moving personal story and a powerful spiritual journey. In "Now is the time to open your heart", Alice Walker has created a work that ranks among her best achievements: the story of a woman's spiritual adventure that becomes a passage through time, a quest for self, and a collision with love. Kate has always been a wanderer. A well-published author, married many times, she has lived a life rich with explorations of the natural world and the human soul. Now, at fifty-seven, she leaves her lover, Yolo, to embark on a new excursion, one that begins on the Colorado River, proceeds through the past, and flows, inexorably, into the future.
