I discovered this novella in the Meet Our Authors Forum and decided for .99, why not give it a try. I'm so glad I did. This is a story which centers around the life of Rose Boyne, a 26 year old copywriter who is struggling to find her "path" in life. Married at a young age, she is now discovering that life isn't always a smooth journey. After learning of her husband's affairs, she turns to a high school friend for comfort and direction.

Leaves of the Fall hit me square in the face, emotionally. It spoke to my own life and the lessons that I learned the hard way. It spoke to me because I understood the emotions of this character. I wish not to say too much because it may give away something but I will say that women who are going through something similar might take a lesson from this book.

Life is definitely not rosy for Rose, as she gradually realizes she in trapped in a loveless marriage to an unfaithful and uncaring spouse. *** Author Violet Yates explores a wide range of emotions first love, infatuation, marital love, lust and unfulfilled love as told through Rose's relationships with the man she loves and the man she thinks she loves. "Leaves of Fall" is a typical story of one person in a group of ordinary people living ordinary lives. Rose's viewpoints on her life as she lives it, her thoughts and actions, doesn't find her taking responsibility for her role in her relationships. Instead, the story is a "lay in the bed you made", with a could have, should have, and would have if somebody else hadn't made the decision for Rose. Husband Trevor, best friend Missy, friend Ethan, and Ethan's wife Sherry are superficial characters used to direct action flow from plot to subplot and back again. Character motivation needs further development to understand why Rose and Ethan are so easily controlled and deceived by their spouses. Rose's transition from co-dependency to free will freedom is glossed over in one leap of faith, a brief understated epiphany. The ending is uncomfortable, like there should have been more done to resolve Rose's and Ethan's situations.
