Peopled with unforgettable characters and told from multiple points of view, this is a novel where spirits are alive, forgiveness is possible, and love is the only thing that matters.
Alice is a single mother raising her three young daughters on the rez where she grew up. Life has never been easy, but she’s managed to get by with the support of her best friend, Gideon, and her family. When an unthinkable loss occurs, Alice is forced to confront truths that will challenge her belief in herself and the world she thought she knew.
The Evolution of Alice is the kaleidoscopic story of one woman’s place within the web of community.
Reissued with a new story by David A. Robertson.
“[This] beautiful book explores themes of forgiveness, grace and growth. Robertson has a profound and thought-provoking ability to take big issues and make them intimate.” (Joanne Kelly for CBC)
