Layla’s life changes in one day in Autumn’s Child by Nicole Murray. Layla was raised in a Christian home with loving parents. She goes for an overnight stay with a friend and wakes up to tragedy. Layla’s parents are killed in an accident and she has to move to another state. Layla moves in with her aunt and grandmother into an environment unfamiliar to her and the values she has been taught.
Layla starts to grow up fast as her discernment for good and bad starts to falter. She has to recognize who her true friends are and who has her best interest at heart, which may not be too many. It is now survival time and those who have hurt her will soon depend on her for stability.
Autumn’s Child is about a young girl not having time to grieve her parents before being placed in a city that she struggled to survive in every day. Layla frustrated me at times even though I sympathized with her throughout the book. The twists and turns in the book were intense, which kept me turning the pages. This book touched on different issues that readers will come to know even in their own lives. It covered abuse but had drama, betrayal and all the makings of a good book. I definitely recommend Autumn’s Child to others.
