Lila is the third book in the Gilead trilogy. I’m not that far into it just yet, but I love Marilynne Robinson’s style.
I read the first book, Gilead, as a part of my friend’s book club when I visited her in Iowa (admittedly, not Kansas, but so incredibly close!).
I fell in love with John Ames and small town Iowa. Incredibly intrigued about Jack Boughton, I devoured Home.
But it only left me with more questions about Lila… and so here we are!
Like this author and many other readers, I’m sure, I imagined many different origin stories for her. Ms. Robinson’s revelation does not disappoint! I look forward to the next few hundred pages!
