    BookshelfMonstrosity: These lyrical, meditative novels brim with bittersweet nostalgia in their evocatively detailed portraits of small American towns in the mid-20th century. Both focus on sensitive teen protagonists struggling to understand shocking tragedies and complex family drama.… (mere)

Ordinary Grace takes place in 1961, a momentous summer in the life of thirteen-year-old Frank Drum, his family, and his community of New Bremen, Minnesota. Frank narrates the story through the filter of the forty years that have passed since the events, including four deaths, occurred. The characters, the place, the time all come alive in Willian Kent Krueger’s masterful prose. The story is both uplifting and dark, part redemption tale, part crime drama. Outstanding. ( )

Less a mystery and more an exploration of grace and human frailty. ( )

I first heard of William Kent Krueger within days of moving to Minnesota this past summer. He seemed to be a local bestseller, greatly respected. A local book club is reading Ordinary Grace; I jumped at the chance to give Krueger a try. All I can is... wow. This man can write. This novel is like a darker, Minnesota-flavored To Kill a Mockingbird, a coming-of-age set in a turbulent 1961. The prose is art. I don't normally read books in this vein, but it hooked me and I had to read through in about a day. Tragedy piles upon tragedy. The only negative I can cite is that I predicted the guilty parties of certain things much earlier on, but the way things played out still came as a surprise. ( )

I gave the audio a full hour, hoping that I'd reach that magical point where you just fall into the story and thoughts about how much longer it was going to go on stop intruding on your consciousness, but it never did. So I finally gave up and moved on to the next book.

Audiobook, picked up on a whim at an Audible $5 sale. Rich Orlow's narration was okay. ( )

Well written complicated, yet sad, story. ( )

It's the kind of book where you fight between wanting to race through it to the finish and attempting to make it last. Luckily it's paced so well and is so satisfying a meal for the mind, I was able to put it down every few chapters and happily mull over what has gone before, feeling sated.

It's the kind of introspective, intelligent novel where there are layers of meaning behind every word, and personal history and context wrapped in the motives of every character. It also has a strong plot, for those who like Kent Krueger for his thrillers.
 
Krueger has created a cast of compelling characters (young and old), each in his or her own way searching for something, including the narrator’s father, the town’s Methodist pastor, and his mother, whose bold personality worries his congregation.

Although Krueger’s plot rises to a predictable conclusion, there’s such a quiet beauty in his prose and such depth to his characters that I was completely captivated by this book’s ordinary grace

All the dying that summer began with the death of a child, a boy with golden hair and thick glasses, killed on the railroad tracks outside New Bremen, Minnesota, sliced into pieces by a thousand tons of steel speeding across the prairie toward South Dakota.

With Mother home I liked the idea that we’d been saved as a family by the miracle of that ordinary grace.
I still spend a lot of time thinking about the events of that summer. About the terrible price of wisdom. The awful grace of God.
