The Heart of a Women

The Heart of a Women

SKU: BPB-30909867

In the fourth volume of her highly acclaimed autobiography, Maya Angelou continues one of the most remarkable and inspiring personal narratives of our age.


As the heart of a woman begins, her turbulent life breaks wide open with joy as the singer-dancer enters the razzle dazzle of fabulous New York City.  There at the Harlem Writers Guild, her love for writing blazes anew.


Her compassion and commitment lead her to respond to the fiery times by becoming the northern coordinator of Martin Luther King's history making quest. A tempestuous, earthy woman, she promises her heart to one man only to have it stolen, virtually on her wedding day, by a passionate African freedom fighter.


Filled with unforgettable vignettes of famous characters, from Billie Holiday to Malcolm X, the heart of a woman sings with Maya Angelou’s eloquent prose - her fondest dreams, her deepest disappointments, and her dramatically tender relationship with her rebellious teenage son. Vulnerable, humorous, tough, Maya speaks with an intimate awareness of the heart within us all.
