A novel by


"... a gripping story skilfully handled by an award winning writer..."
J M Coetzee

When fiery Jessica Kruger decides to unlock the secret's of her grandfather's love affair with his coloured maid in the 1930's, it is the start of two love triangles that interweave in this compelling story set in the Western Cape. Jessica's love affair in the nineties with Teboso Ngqayimbana, her anthropology lecturer, and her grandfather's taboo love affair in the thirties with Jolene Galant, his coloured maid, are linked in surprising and ingenious ways. Evolution is set in two South Africas that are radically different though subtly related by natural progression.
