⛅ Online Ordinary Grace: A Novel for kids ⛏ E-Pub Author William Kent Krueger ⛳ ⛅ Online Ordinary Grace: A Novel for kids ⛏ E-Pub Author William Kent Krueger ⛳ Krueger, the author of the best selling Cork OConnor mysteries, largely set in Minnesota, has written a stand alone novel that is part mystery but mostly an extended and often overly extended meditation The narrator, Frank Drum, writes as a middle age man looking back on a summer in 1961 in New Bremen, Minnesota, when he was 13 the Minnesota Twins were in their first season and death, in five different instances, shook his family and their community in the Minnesota River valley The first death is that of Franks sometime friend Bobby Cole The proximate cause was a train, but the mystery is whether Bobby stood in front of that train, or was pushed or placed there More deaths follow, one of which rips apart Franks family This coming of age story is obviously an attempt to show how grace can work through the fissures of suffering While the setting is well rendered, the characters are too flat, and Krueger keeps striking the same monologists meditative note throughout, while most readers will long for variety in style

memorable tale Washington Post A respected mystery writer turns his attention to the biggest mystery of all God An award winning author for his long running Cork O Connor series, Krueger aims higher and hits harder with a standalone novel that shares much with his other work the awful grace of God, as it manifests itself within the novel, would try the faith of the most devout believer Yet, ultimately, the world of this novel is one of redemptive grace and mercy, as well as unidentified corpses and unexplainable tragedy A novel that transforms narrator and reader alike Kirkus Reviews
