The Pulitzer Prize–winning author ofThe Color Purple,Possessing the Secret of Joy,andThe Temple of My Familiarnow gives us a beautiful new novel that is at once a deeply moving personal story and a powerful spiritual journey. InNow Is the Time to Open Your Heart, Alice Walker has created a work that ranks among her ?nest 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. 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 Heartis Alice Walker’s most surprising achievement.

I should read this book again and then review it, as i was in a strange distracted personal space, but for now, just a few thoughts. This was the first book i have read by Alice Walker. I definitely want to read more by her, purely because i found her writing style to be beautiful. I especially found her weaving of nature/spirituality and the human journey to be compelling. Water, roots, branchs, release, currents, purging, cleansing, searching. Her characters internal journeys are embodied and entwined in the naural world. The questions raised by this book, resonated with me, however, the characters were so steeped in previledge that i found it nearly impossible to take the journey with them. Who gets to really just drop their life and go soul searching in the amazon with shaman? No one. Although the questions explored are human to the core, the characters wrestling with them are entirely unrelateable in their priviledge ( )

Kate, a woman passing mid-life, shrugs off all that she is in order to discover who she might be. Her journey takes her down the mighty Colorado River and through the jungles of the Amazon, but her true journey is within. Alice Walker chronicles Kate's odyssey with a literary rhythm that enchants. ( )

On the surface this novel tells the story of Kate. She recognises she needs to retreat away from life and at the same time her lover Yolo goes off on holiday to revisit Hawaii. Incidentally, Yolo discovers more than he expected from a sun and sand holiday. Kate also dreams a lot and is conscious of her ageing body. However this novel is also about Alice, Alice Walker the grand daughter who has never known her grandmother. Alice suspects that her grandmother, whose life was cut short when she was murdered, given a longer life would have become the psychic explorer which in fact is exactly what Kate becomes. Along the way Kate traverses the Colorado River and then the Amazon, meets a shaman and generally learns more about ‘herself’ in the company of a group of women and men who are similarly searching. Under the watchful eyes of the shaman Kate, along with her fellow travellers imbibe the mysterious botanical mixtures that release the person within and illuminate the more incomprehensible aspects of the person and their life thus far.

I am of the view that this book more so than many others, will speak to you and be rated according to where you, the reader find yourself on life’s journey and the extent to which the deeper more spiritual aspects, connections and cultural thinking resonate with your own progress along that path. Just as I am - here and now, that resonance with my own journey along with the beautiful and reflective writing merits the four star accolade. ( )

A thoughtful novel, not too long and pleasantly short chapters. I found it a bit confusing at first, but relaxed into her style and went with the flow of the book. As others have said, its the tale of two people on different journeys and how they change. Well structured and written. ( )

Kate a writer who is has been having dreams about a river which has run dry. After conversations with her therapist, she decides to go on an exploration to discover the meaning of this dream. So she packs up a few of her belongings, leaves her lover, Yolo and sets of with a group of women on a rafting trip down the Colorado River.
Yolo sets off on what he expects to be a more conventional vacation in sunny Hawai. However, he too is placed in circumstances which force him to reflect on himself and the choices he has made, as well as his place in the world. ( )
