Alexander is the Ying to Lila's Yang because he provides the stability and reasoning she needs to survive throughout the pulse-racing events that can either exonerate or imprison her. Steadfast in his Christian beliefs, he penetrates Lila's hard shell as they search for the key to her freedom-both figuratively and literally. His strong religious beliefs are nurturing to Lila's own fragile faith; which helps in the restoration of her Christianity.
The overall swiftness of events gives the audience the feel of being involved in the lives of the characters. The author focuses on sharp characterizations and imagery that propels the novel to its completeness.
As the story unfolds, the reader sees the transformation of Lila's self-serving character from pompous to forgiving and growing steadily in her faith.
This tender tale delves into the psyche of Lila as she experiences heartache and revisits her painful past while exploring a possible future with her former lover, lawyer and best friend. They both find unconditional love within each other, themselves and their faith.
