Ayla is the main character of Jean Auel 's Earth's Children novels. She is a Cro-Magnon woman who was raised by Neanderthals . Ayla was played by Daryl Hannah in the 1986 movie The Clan of the Cave Bear . Ayla's character has been described as an example of the "rebellious primordial" that conquers adversity with wit and will. [1]

See The Clan of the Cave Bear , The Valley of Horses , The Mammoth Hunters , The Plains of Passage , The Shelters of Stone and The Land of Painted Caves for a detailed synopsis of Ayla's life.

Ayla is described as tall, with blonde hair, gray-blue eyes, a well-toned body, and a strangely accented voice (actually a speech mannerism). She has been raised with Clan customs, sign language instead of speech, not to laugh or smile, and not to cry. Almost every male Cro-Magnon character in the series finds Ayla exceptionally beautiful, though Ayla describes herself as "big and ugly" because she was regarded by the Clan as ugly. Another word frequently used to describe her is 'exotic', indicating that she seems a bit foreign to everyone who meets her, and that her own people live somewhere else.

The Shelters of Stone is a historical fiction novel by Jean M. Auel published in April 2002. It is the sequel to The Plains of Passage – published 12 years earlier – and fifth in the Earth's Children series. It describes the return of Jondalar to his homeland along with Ayla.

Central to this book is the tension created by Ayla's healing art, her pregnancy , and the acceptance of her by Jondalar's people, the Zelandonii. Ayla was raised by Clan Neanderthals , known as "flatheads" to the Zelandonii and viewed as no better than animals. For the Zelandonii to accept Ayla they must first overcome their prejudice against the Neanderthals. Luckily for Ayla and Jondalar, some of the higher-ranking Zelandonii already have doubts of this misjudgment.

Two of their number, Echozar and Brukeval, are of partial Neanderthal ancestry and are ashamed of it. Echozar at least is pacified by Ayla's own story and by his (Echozar's) own marriage to Joplaya, Jondalar's close-cousin (half-sister). Brukeval, on the other hand, rejects his heritage utterly and refuses to listen to reason.
