Mystery/Fiction; 320pp. New Bremen, Minnesota, summer of 1961. The Twins were playing their debut season, ice-cold root beers were at the ready at Halderson’s Drugstore soda fountain, and “Hot Stuff” comics were a mainstay on every barbershop magazine rack. It was a time of innocence and hope for a country with a new, young president. But for thirteen-year-old Frank Drum, it was a summer in which death assumed many forms. When tragedy unexpectedly comes to call on Frank’s family, he finds himself thrust into an adult world full of secrets, lies, adultery, and betrayal. On the surface, “Ordinary Grace” is the story of a murder. But at its heart, it’s the story of what death and tragedy does to a young boy, his family, and a small town. Told from Frank’s perspective forty years after that fateful summer, it is a moving account of a boy standing at the door of 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. Follow us on Facebook!
