Marilynne Robinson

'Dit zou wel eens de meest aarzelende, formele en vertederende romance kunnen zijn die je ooit onder ogen krijgt.' - The Washington Post Lila zwerft dakloos rond als ze de dorpskerk van Gilead, Iowa, binnen stapt omdat het regent. Daar ontmoet ze dominee en weduwnaar John Ames, met wie ze voorzichtig een nieuw leven begint, terwijl ze probeert haar verleden te verwerken. Als verwaarloosde peuter werd Lila van haar ouders gered door Doll. Samen trokken ze in een groep arme dagloners door het uitgestrekte Middenwesten, met niets dan elkaar en een oud mes om zich te beschermen. Lila worstelt met het wereldbeeld en het geloof van haar man, dat pretendeert een geloof van liefde te zijn. Paradoxaal genoeg worden echter de mensen die Lila liefheeft door datzelfde geloof veroordeeld. Dat leidt tot confronterende vragen: wat maakt iemand tot een goed mens? En wat vermag de liefde?

Marilynne Robinson

Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award National Book Award Finalist A new American classic from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Gilead and Housekeeping Marilynne Robinson, one of the greatest novelists of our time, returns to the town of Gilead in an unforgettable story of a girlhood lived on the fringes of society in fear, awe, and wonder. 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, John Ames, and begins a new existence while trying to make sense of the life 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. Together they crafted a life on the run, living hand to mouth with nothing but their sisterly bond and a ragged blade to protect them. Despite bouts of petty violence and moments of desperation, their shared life was laced with moments of joy and love. When Lila arrives in Gilead, she struggles to reconcile the life of her makeshift family and their days of hardship with the gentle Christian worldview of her husband which paradoxically judges those she loves. Revisiting the beloved characters and setting of Robinson's Pulitzer Prize-winning Gilead and Home, a National Book Award finalist, Lila is a moving expression of the mysteries of existence that is destined to become an American classic.
