|Plot Summary of Reflections|
|"Lize is slowly recovering from a mysterious blood disease after almost being killed by it. The problem is that the illness took all her energy and that she now has no more strength or courage left for the recovery process. She meets wealthy businessman, Charles Ashton, who is the most distant and detached person she has ever come across. Charles chooses to become involved in the life of another person for the first time in years when he asks her to marry him in order to give her the opportunity, space and support to get better.
Reflections takes us into several aspects of Lize's life: her physical recovery, her mental re-adjustment to being healthy and independent and her realization that she cannot deal with the unusual circumstances of her marriage and, especially, with her husband's inability to express his feelings and with his unwillingness to become emotionally involved.
