Book Review
In Lila, Robinson captures the title character’s ruminations on existence to perfection. Lila is a marginalized woman who has spent her life in hiding until she marries the minister of the town of Gilead. Those familiar with Robinson’s previous works will enjoy seeing the town of Gilead through an outsider’s eyes. Lila doesn’t necessarily answer the big questions about love or happiness, solitude or salvation, poverty or prosperity, but simply asking them sets this novel firmly into the spiritual realm.
