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.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Louise Silk | 2/16/2014

    " very disappointing is all I can say. This would have been better as a non-fiction seeing-the-light kind of book. as a novel it seemed contrived and petty. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Vern | 2/12/2014

    " Alice Walker is in my top three authors but this book was not a favorite of mine. It was quite a disappointment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Ronald Wise | 1/24/2014

    " A novel of which I learned through a conversation with Walker (23 April 2004) on KUOW's Weekday. This was a visit into two people's lives that provided timely insight and inspiration for me. One of those books which remind you of the human condition in which all those around us are living. I've added all Walker's other books to my reading list "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by Labmom | 1/9/2014

    " If this book were not written by Alice Walker, who is a fantastic storyteller ususally, I would have stopped after the description of the main character's altar (Jesus next to Che). Apparently she writes menopausal, new age, soul-searching tripe now. Next time I want to read Walker, I'll go back to "The Color Purple" or "The Temple of my Familiar." "
