I can tell you that it is a truly amazing tale that will make you cry, gasp and think. It is a short story yet the author manages to convey so much. It is a gripping tale of Ralph who wakes up to find himself chained up in a shack. His journey is one of true heartbreak and the subject matter within the story is something that happens far too much. The different perspective is a very clever and genius way of driving the point of this story home and straight into our hearts.
It is a very dark and violent tale with a twist that changes very thing you think you know to be true and makes you think long and hard about the situation Ralph finds himself in. The true sadness of the story comes when you realise that this situation happens a lot and we have been given an insight into a side of it that we have never had before.
This is such a clever and poignant story and a different direction from other things I have read from this author. This book has reinforced my love for C A King and I would highly recommend that you read anything written by them.

The story When Leaves Fall (A Different Point of View Story Book 1) by C.A. King is a short story that will leave a big impact. You are introduced to Ralph who wakes up chained to a shed not knowing who he is. He also doesn’t know how he has come to be there. He keeps hoping that his family will come to save him. What will happen to Ralph?
This book is all about the ordeal that Ralph is going through and all of the emotions that go with it. It starts with confusion, then goes to sadness and eventually, Ralph starts to feel hopeless. We all have a need to feel love and feel like we belong. Ralph is no different. Parts of this story also had me angry. This came with the way Ralph was treated and who was the cause. I have read several of the author’s books and have always found her to create meaningful stories and wonderful characters. I always look forward to reading her books. This book is just the latest example of her amazing work.
As the title says this is definitely a story from a different point of view. When Leaves Fall is definitely a dark thriller with a twist you will not see coming in a million years. It is also very sad at the end. You will not find another story like this one. It is very cleverly written.
When Leaves Fall is a short story from C.A King. It is a perspective story that is full of drama, suspense and mystery. It is somewhat disturbing, dark, violent and heartbreaking. When the author warns that you will need tissues on hand while reading this book, she isn’t kidding. It had me sobbing my heart out in complete devastation with what the character/s go through. The plot is ingenious, really twisting and turning and keeping you guessing right till the end. Even though I did guess the major twist, it wasn’t till the end before I was really sure that what I thought was indeed correct. The story is really though provoking, while really pulling at your heartstrings.
Ralph wakes up disoriented and in pain. He has no idea who he is or how he came to be chained to a shed. He wracks his mind desperately trying to remember something, anything that could explain the situation he is in. He wonders if anyone has noticed him missing yet. Or if anyone is looking for him. Does he have a family… Or friends? Where is his home, because this shed is certainly not his home?
“Home. He wanted to go home. He wanted to leave this place and never think about it again. Would he ever see his home again? He pushed the strange thought from his mind, not allowing it any time to fester and infect his will.”
“None of this made sense. He tried to remember what happened, but memories failed him, providing only quick glimpses of random pictures in his mind. Someone had put him there, but he didn't know who. He shivered. It was getting cold.”
As the story progresses, Ralphs mind begins to play tricks on him. He is having trouble telling what is real or imagined. His captor beats him, starves him and terrorises him until he fears he will lose himself completely. Where is his family? Surely he has one and they would be searching for him?
“A family. He most definitely had a family - not that he could visualize them at the moment, but he was sure they existed. He also knew they loved him as much as he loved them. His family would notice he was missing. They would come for him. He only needed to wait. He was sure they would find him.”
“A single falling leaf grabbed Ralph's attention. It fluttered playfully about, caught in a gust of wind. It blew around in circles a few times before drifting peacefully down to join the others. How lucky that leaf was. If, at that exact moment, he could chose to be anything, it would have been that leaf.”
I won’t say any more because I don’t want to give away any spoilers. But I doubt that anyone could read this book without being drawn into the story and feeling for Ralph and his plight, and rooting for him to find freedom, his family and his home. When the story finally comes together it will shock you to the core. Again I point out again the need for tissues!
A really well written and moving story that will stay with you long after you’ve finished reading it!
There really is no limit to the wonderful imagination of Ms. King- she never ceases to amaze me with the variety of stories that she draws from her creative mind.
Thank you Ms. King!
