The Last Leaf of Autumn
By: RC Littleton
About the Book
The author explores the process of emotional and spiritual healing. How one family deals with the hidden wounds left by the death of a beloved parent and spouse. Some are readily revealed while others are deeply concealed. Complicated by family dynamics—keeping secrets, manipulation, misuse of information—all play vital roles in the difficulty in discovering which is which. Very often emotional healing is the process and spiritual growth the journey that must be taken simultaneously.
While working through her personal issues Atarah soon discovers that neither spiritual growth nor emotional healing can happen in a vacuum. The main character must find the courage to reveal her own secrets even if she finds that she takes a detour or two or three along the way.
