The Year the Swallows Came Early by Kathryn Fitzmaurice

When Eleanor "Groovy" Robinson's father is arrested and put in jail, her plans for cooking school are put on hold.  Her best friend's mother reappears after a mysterious absence and both children learn about family and the power of forgiveness.

Sometimes students have to live with big disappointments caused by their own parents.  I found this book realistic and relatable for ages 10-13.
