Lila by Marilynne Robinson



Reviewed by Marcy (Library Staff)

I’ve not always connected with Robinson’s style but was pleasantly surprised when reading Lila.The author flows in and out of the present as much as the main character Lila comes and goes as she wanders. Lila has a damaged past and is, for the most part, homeless. She finds a groundedness in her marriage to John Ames, minister and widower. As the story progresses one can’t help but enter Lila’s world as she sees it and is surprised by its simplicity and realness.
