Product Description:

The author of The Color Purple weaves a narrative spell of three pairs of lovers who transcend time to discover disquieting truths.

Review:

''Walker's fictional creations are musicians, storytellers, artists and mothers: all of them embrace life with the characteristic optimism of this author, against a background of colour: love, for instance, blossoms on an "olive-green sailboat with its black-and-yellow sails". ( HERALD (9.10.04))
