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 57, 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. As Yolo begins his own parallel voyage, Kate encounters celibates and lovers, shamans and snakes, memories of family disaster and marital discord, and emerges at a place where nothing remains but love.
Told with the accessible style and deep feeling that are its author's hallmarks, Now Is the Time to Open Your Heart is Alice Walker's most surprising achievement.

Food for the intellect, heart, and soul
I find it rare that a book challenges and fulfills its readers on so many levels as this one. Strange as it sounds, listening to this book felt pleasantly like cleaning and re-energizing my mind. It was hypnotic. It challenged me on a mental, emotional, and spiritual level that I enjoyed thoroughly. The narrator did an excellent job, as well. I look forward to listening to it again. My only disappointment is that I can't find any other novels by Alice Walker on Audible.
