"A triumphant story of a woman coming to terms with the loss of her mother and an inspiring, though haunting, testament to the endurance of the human spirit." -- (Kirkus Reviews)
When young Barbara Bracht's mother suddenly vanishes from her life, no one tells her that her mother has died while giving birth to her younger brother, Eddie. Her father is intent upon erasing any memory of his dead wife, but Barbara continues to believe that her mother is missing until a cousin tells her the truth. As the years of deception unravel, the tough and sassy Barbara struggles to pursue her own dreams and make peace with a crushing family secret.
Offering hope, Veronica's Grave is a captivating story that asks us to consider what parents owe their children, and how far a child will go to keep the memory of her mother alive.

Veronica's Grave--A Sweet Voice
I have read the print version and loved it. The Audible has such a sweet little girl voice as the narrator that it was a very enjoyable experience in an auditory way!
Of course, it had to be the little girl--Barbara.
I loved many scenes--especially right after little Barbara wishes to find out what happened to her mother, the Catholic school scenes with the nuns were hilarious, her training as a flight attendant, and then meeting the love of her life--her husband Dick.
