Lila, homeless and alone after years of roaming the countryside, steps inside a small-town Iowa church-the only available shelter from the rain-and ignites a romance and a debate that will reshape her life. She becomes the wife of a minister and widower, John Ames, and begins a new existence while trying to make sense of the days of suffering that preceded her newfound security. Neglected as a toddler, Lila was rescued by Doll, a canny young drifter, and brought up by her in a hardscrabble childhood of itinerant work. Together they crafted a life on the run, living hand-to-mouth with nothing but their sisterly bond and a lucky knife to protect them. But despite bouts of petty violence and moments of desperation, their shared life is laced with moments of joy and love. When Lila arrives in Gilead, she struggles to harmonize the life of her makeshift family and their days of hardship with the gentle worldview of her husband which paradoxically judges those she loves. Revisiting the beloved characters and setting of Marilynne Robinson's Pulitzer Prize-winning Gilead and Orange Prize-winning Home, Lila is a moving expression of the mysteries of existence.… (lisätietoja)

Marilynne Robinson, is a wonderful writer of prose and I enjoyed this book. It does spur me on to read Gilead because the only other Robinson I have read is housekeeping. I appreciated Lila's story and why we needed to return to her tortured life but it did get a tad wearisome. I will write down some of Robinson's prose for later uses though - I especially liked the last 50 pages. ( )

“The medium is the message.” Novels for me seem to be more a pursuit of meaning, while nonfiction is a pursuit of truth, if the two can be separated. No ifs, ands, or buts about it - we humans are meaning makers, and one of the best mediums for finding meaning is story.

And all that being said, Marilynne Robinson is an expert story teller. Lila is appropriately the story of Lila, where she came from, the people who shaped her life, and the love story of her and John Aimes, the protagonist of Robinson’s other book, Gilead.

Most of all, I felt the story pulls you, oddly enough, into the present moment, that is to learn, if only a little, how to be right where you are and to taste and see life as it’s meant to be, a sacred miracle of fallen beauty. For me, it resonated with a calmness of depth, teaching us humility and grace.

I hope that as I get older, I can learn these things more - to be, without the incessant restlessness for influence, to love story and the pursuit of meaning more, perhaps, than the inexhaustible striving for more or better, and most of all, the humility and grace inherent, yet oh so often ignored, within the Christian faith.

Lila is perhaps the most mysterious figure in Marilynne Robinson's Gilead world. How she found John Ames, married him, and bore his child with his impending death looming over him is one of the most touching untold stories of *Gilead.* So Robinson focuses on her, telling the story of a child plucked from abuse and neglect and into a hard life, but one filled with awe and wonder at the very nature of existence. 4.5 stars.

Lila, de cuatro o cinco años, malvive en una casa de obreros inmigrantes en algún punto del Midwest de la década de 1920. Nadie parece preocuparse mucho por ella. Pasa el tiempo acurrucada bajo una mesa hasta que rompe a llorar y alguien la manda fuera de la casa. Un anochecer, una mujer llamada Doll se lleva a Lila. Sobreviven uniéndose a una banda de trabajadores nómadas en busca de empleo mientras el país se sume en la Gran Depresión.
Pasan los años y para Lila la felicidad sigue siendo algo extraño. Doll ha desaparecido de su vida sin saber cómo y ella sigue su deambular, preguntando casa por casa si alguien tiene un trabajo para ella. Un día, para guarecerse de una tormenta, entra en una iglesia del poblado de Gilead mientras el reverendo John Ames pronuncia su sermón. Con el vestido mojado, los ojos tristes, Lila no había nacido para ser una mujer bella.

A pesar de la diferencia de edad y de condición, Lila y el reverendo Ames vivirán una historia de amor como un milagro repentino e inexplicable. Lila huye de un pasado itinerante y brutal, y el reverendo recupera el sentido del amor cuarenta años después de la muerte de su primera mujer.
Lila es la tercera novela protagonizada por los habitantes de Gilead en Iowa, junto a Gilead y En casa publicadas en español por Galaxia Gutenberg en 2011 y 2013. Y con ellas, Marilynne Robinson se ha convertido ya en un clásico viviente de la literatura contemporánea. Ganadora del 'National Book Critics Circle Award' (lecturalia.com) ( )

On completing Lila I could only think 'what a marvelous accomplishment'. I rated Gilead 3 stars, Home 4 stars and Lila 5 stars, not because there was such a significant difference in the novels, but because my appreciation and wonder grew as I read and it was only upon reaching Lila that I could see the whole. The same central characters, the same relationships, portrayed from different times, from different points of view, with the emphasis and focus on different characters, different events and interactions receiving greater or less emphasis and focus, all enriching the whole. I felt as if I was walking in a wide circle looking at the same events from different points along the arc, or that I was taking in an amazing work of art from different angles and distances, but then neither of those analogies captures the dynamic nature of what you are watching. I feel that if I were to start the three novels over, the experience would be very different, in some ways better as I would notice details that had slipped my attention on the first reading, but that the second experience would always be different than the first.

It is fine to evaluate and enjoy these novels individually, but then they should receive a completely different assessment as a whole. The magic of the accomplishment and the reading experience is magnified when viewed as a whole. ( )

With Lila, Marilynne Robinson completes her mythic cycle, this intimate portrait of an imaginary town filled with very real people. Like her forebears James Joyce, William Faulkner and William Kennedy, among others, Robinson has created a world unto itself, as cleanly evoked as Dublin, Yoknapatawpha County or Albany; only in Robinson’s case, her alternate universe is one of the blessed places of the earth.
 
You don’t need an ounce of faith to be stunned and moved by Lila. God has never been so attractive as he is in Robinson’s depiction, but her heart is with the human experience, in all its forms. Lila and Ames are lonely souls, worn out by sadness and suffering, but they learn how to be together and find salvation, of a sort. Robinson writes Lila in a mystifyingly impressive amalgam of recollection and spontaneously unfolding thought. Sometimes you feel the ideas are being born fresh on the page, and yet they also contain a depth of thinking and feeling that only years of work can summon. Taken together, with Lila as the culmination, these books will surely be read and known in time as one of the great achievements of contemporary literature. An embarrassingly grand statement for such gentle, graceful work.
 
Robinson shakes her finger at whoever she thinks needs to learn a lesson. I’m not saying that great novelists haven’t done this before (see “War and Peace”), only that it didn’t necessarily benefit their work. Robinson writes about religion two ways. One is meliorist, reformist. The other is rapturous, visionary. Many people have been good at the first kind; few at the second kind, at least today.

The second kind is Robinson’s forte.
 
Robinson’s determination to shed light on these complexities—the solitude that endures inside intimacy, the sorrow that persists beside joy—marks her as one of those rare writers genuinely committed to contradiction as an abiding state of consciousness. Her characters surprise us with the depth and ceaseless wrinkling of their feelings.

What could the old man say about all those people born with more courage than they could find a way to spend and then there was nothing to do with it but just get by?
And the old man did look as though every blessing he had forgotten to hope for had descended on him all at once, for the time being.
He was happier than he wanted her to see, relieved even though he knew it was too soon to trust that they were safe yet, and worried that he was too ready to be happy and relieved. After breakfast he set a little glass bowl on the porch railing to catch some snow as it fell, and when he saw it had stopped falling, he took the bowl out to the rosebushes to pluck snow that had caught in the brambles. He brought it inside and set it on the windowsill so the sun would melt it. It was pretty the way the light made kind of a little flame, floating in the middle of the water, burning away in there cold as could be. It was for christening the child, she knew without asking. If the child came struggling into the world, that water would be ready for him. If it had to be his only blessing, then it would be a pure and lovely blessing. That was the old man getting ready to make the best of the worst that could happen. Not my will but thine. In his sermons he was always reminding himself of that prayer.
