Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger

Ordinary Grace

The summer of 1961 was a memorable one for 13 year old Frank Drum.  It’s Minnesota, and Twins are playing for the first time. More importantly, that summer, people are turning up dead in Frank Drum’s small town of New Bremen.

When tragedy strikes his own family, Frank is suddenly forced to grow up.  His world becomes enveloped with the reality of grief, anger, betrayal, lust and adultery.

From it’s opening pages, Ordinary Grace is a novel that grabs you and won’t let go.  From Krueger’s rich characters to the haunting events that happen that summer, you’ll find yourself wanting to say awhile in New Bremen.

    I read this, too.

    William Kent Krueger may have outdone himself with ORDINARY GRACE. I’ve read a few other popular novels by this author,and ORDINARY GRACE is by far the best.

    Usually, coming-of-age stories bore me. But ORDINARY GRACE does not come across as a coming-of-age story. This is a story told by a 53-year-old man. He writes as an adult recalling what happened that summer to his family and others in his small community when one murder after another took place.

    But ORDINARY GRACE mainly observes the narrator’s father and brother, so full of ordinary grace.
