This is a spectacular coming-of-age story set in 1961 Minnesota. It is a heart-felt and gorgeously written book. The author uses imagery so effectively - you can feel the breeze on your face and smell the freshly mown grass. The simple acts if Grace that humans are able to offer one another in the face of difficult changes and challenges make this book a perfect read.

A book about a small town famiky that suffers a through mystery/tragedy in the 1960s. Well written book that captures the grief, faith and forgiveness that go with it. Predictable but well written. I enjoyed it.

William Kent Krueger is known for his Cork O‘Connor series but this is an award winning stand-alone from him. It is a thought-provoking novel and a great story!

Looking back at a tragic event that occurred during his thirteenth year, Frank Drum explores how a complicated web of secrets, adultery, and betrayal shattered his Methodist family and their small 1961 Minnesota community.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ordinary Grace was very difficult for me to put down. With pain and wisdom woven through drama and mystery, the book had me thinking about the characters and the story they were suffering through even when I was not reading the book. The language of the book is neither extravagant or difficult to comprehend yet the beautiful insight stirred within my heart again and again, making me pause to reflect.

Mdargusch I love your review because that‘s exactly how I felt when reading this. I think about this book a lot and it‘s a book I often buy for my friends. 10mo

Mehso-so

The summer of 1961 is pivotal for Frank Drum, the preacher's son in New Bremen, MN. Multiple deaths impact the community in a few short months, and forty years later, Frank reflects on events that shaped his life and challenged his faith. Though characters are well-drawn, the pacing was uneven and a deaf character is described in problematic ways ("signs and gestures," not language and vocalizations in "that tone that I hate"). A mixed result.

blurb
EadieB
Ordinary Grace: A Novel | William Kent Krueger

Told from Frank‘s perspective forty years after that fateful summer, Ordinary Grace is a brilliantly moving account of a boy standing at the door of his young manhood, trying to understand a world that seems to be falling apart around him. It is an unforgettable novel about discovering the terrible price of wisdom and the enduring grace of God.

"My father used to quote the Greek playwright Aeschylus, 'He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain, which cannot forget, falls drop by drop upon the heart, until, in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom through the awful grace of God." - this is from the prologue. I believe it is a reference to Romans 5:3-5 that I have sitting on my desk. I think I'm going to like this book.

A middle-aged man reflects on his momentous experiences as a 13-year-old in Minnesota in the summer of 1961. Time and place are impeccably described. Mystery and a sense of foreboding pervade this addictive novel, as well as bittersweet nostalgia for the particular time in the life of a young person who is on the threshold of adulthood.

A very moving story - classified as a mystery, but I felt the mystery was a means to explore the growth and development of the boy at its center. 13 year old Frank Drum experiences a violent loss that forces him to mature and look at life, faith, and relationships with a new perspective. Especially moving is his relationship with his younger brother. Told in the first person by Frank, the style is relaxed, yet at times intense. Good read.

This story is about a minister's family in new Bremen, Minnesota during the summer of 1961, told through the eyes of 13-year-old Frankie, the middle child. It examines faith and the "awesome grace of God" without shoving religion down your throat in anyway, believe it or not!

My book club picked this book for our next read. I was worried I wouldn't finish it in time (since I hadn't started it), so I took a break from the book I had been reading and picked this one up. I don't think it was an accident since I had just returned from my grandfather's funeral.

Finished this in wee morning hours- could not put it down. Beautiful writing, exquisite details of nature, river, & book‘s rural, small town setting. Most often viewed through the lens of two young boys, 13 yr old Frank & his younger brother Jake, as they walked and biked their neighborhood and beyond.
Quiet, yet suspenseful, genuine characters, coming of age, mystery, death. Grace. Mailing soon.

Excellent. Cannot speak high enough praise for this book. The main character is a bit named Frank. His dad is a mi inter and they live in Minnesota. It's the 1969z, and the story takes place over one summer, when a series of events happen, each getting worse. A story of how a family tries to hold itself together during trying times, fall apart, then come back together. A story about life, death and how to come to terms with it. 5✨⭐️✨

Mehso-so

Most everyone seems to love this book. For me it was sad and depressing.

Cinfhen I get that! It was, but I thought it was so beautifully written, especially for a guy ( I know, that's pretty sexist of me😉) 2y
Crinoline_Laphroaig @Cinfhen I did like the very last bit to see what had become of characters. It was beautifully written. I just wasn't in the mood for sad and it was for book club so I wanted to finish. 2y
