Even though my Kindle is where books go to die, I dug this one out and am now scratching my head as to why I waited so long. In a word, wonderful. 1961 small town Minnesota is the setting for this mystery novel. Unlike most mysteries, this one concentrates on the development of the characters, especially 13 year old Frank and his younger brother Jake who grow up fast during this turbulent summer when a young friend dies unexpectedly and sets off several other deaths. Exquisite writing brings forth some wonderful empathy along with dealing with the grief that the whole community faces. If you enjoyed the writing of Kent Haruf you might just like this book. ( )

This book! I went into it thinking it is a mystery ... which it is,
and a coming-of-age story, which it also is.
But, there is a depth to the story that goes beyond the mystery.
It is a story about family, and small miracles and yes, ordinary
grace. This one will stay with me for awhile. ( )

Liked how this book moved along, number of characters but all played part in overall story. Seemed accurate description of life in the 1960s. Narrator and his stuttering brother were true boys that just wanted to be apart of the action by eavesdropping, going where told not to go. Lucky for them to have a church boarder, Gus, that they could trust. Knew older sister was too good, did what Mom wanted musically, that something would happen to her but didn’t expect her ending. Figured Indian was not the problem. Mystery had several potential suspects. Preacher father was overly nice, thought something would happen to him. The idea of Grace of God was central to theme. “Against our will comes wisdom through the awful graces of God” ( )

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.
