I personally fell in love with these books a long time ago. An internal connection between myself and Lena was formed right away. A strong image that has been a part of me and that stuck out from the story was the moments of her lying under the lemon trees. Such a serene moment are the moments she wishes to hold onto if she is chosen for light. To hold onto her "humanity" for lesser terms of the word. So here she is depicted as chosen for light, firmly planted in the earth embracing the ease of being chosen for light. (if that turns out to be the case) (i will not have a spoiler alert as i don't want to give away the story to those who have not read it)
thanks for looking.
"We're not sure why Ethan doesn't just run back to the car, but he books it down a nearby garden path instead.
The smell of lemon trees hangs in the air. Rosemary, too. Whoa. Beyond the bushes, someone is crying. Surprise, surprise, it's Lena. Ethan and Lena talk a bit—some of it verbal, some of it not. Turns out they can communicate with one another telepathically at times. No big deal.
While talking, Lena idly shapes clouds in the air with her hands. A handy trick for parties, by the way."
