In Time Trials (ISBN 0-595-15564-1 $9.95, Paperback, 132 Pages, Dec 2000, iUniverse.com), Evans weaves a fable around Miriam who goes on a spiritual quest where the time threads have been pulled out of the fabric of her days and she discovers the slip stream and the meaning of life. The author takes us on a journey through time, space and South Africa in the months leading up to the inauguration of Nelson Mandela as the first democratically elected President of the country.
"I liked the conclusion of Time Trials, based on Mariamme Williamson's A Return to Love; glorifying our existence as children of God and the author's wanting to share this message with others around her. On various occasions she has also subtly touched on transformation, love, inner spirit, supreme spirit, eternity and meaning of life etc. Her approach to stay in touch with reality even in the midst of hard cruel happenings is not only enlightening but also reaching the inner being. There is a great message of returning to what we truly are; loving-vibrant-aware people. All of us can benefit from it's underlying essence of freedom that we all cherish and mutual respect for one another. A great message in a short vibrant book." -- Ram Varma, self-empowerment & meditation lecturer and author.
"...an original and altogether unconventional novel, unusual in concept, in structure and in thought."
"Gail takes a hard look at the many facets in South African society with humour, honesty and insight..."
"...essentially an anti-apartheid tract, albeit an unusual one..."
