Twelve-year-old Amelia blames herself for her father’s death in a plane crash and lives through a year of grief before telling anyone her secret. Marguerite Gavin narrates this poignant story of loss and acceptance. Capturing both Amelia and her mother’s sorrow, Gavin presents these characters’ raw emotions and shares their mourning with the listener. Unable to cope with the loss of her father, Amelia turns inward as her mother grows more and more lethargic. It’s not until Brother Mustard Seed shows up on their doorstep that they have any hope for the future. This is a must-listen for anyone who has experienced the profound loss of a parent.
