In The Image is one of those books that evolves, through the characters' coming of age, coming to peace and acceptance, and coming towards spiritual identity. One young girl learns to accept the death of her best friend, through the slide images of the grandfather of that same friend, and she learns to overcome her fear of loss and allows herself to fall in love. The grandfather learns to accept his own life, which is built frame by frame, on his slides, through the images he has photographed during his travels. He has to learn to leave the past behind, his childhood and abusive father. For him the images represent life, and he has to learn to let go in order to accept his life challenges and move forward and find spiritual identity and peace. The symbolism and undertones in this novel leave one in awe, the images clearly defined in the author's words. Age is a state of mind, a number we define ourselves with, but one can be 70 and still be coming of age. This book touches on coming of age, for all age groups.
