    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.… (mais)

This book is beautifully written. The author has the ability to make you feel like you are there and get you really vested in what happens with the characters. I haven't read writing this good since Harper Lee's "To Kill a Mockingbird". I would highly recommend it ( )

It’s summer, 1961 in small-town Minnesota. Frank is 13-years old; he has an 11-year old younger brother Jake, and an older sister, Ariel (17 or 18). Their father is a minister. At the beginning of the summer, another boy Frank’s age died on or near the train tracks. It’s only a few days later when Frank finds another dead body near the same area. With the “nameless itinerant” (as he is called througout the rest of the book), Frank and Jake see a Native man, but they sense no harm from him, Warren Redbird, so they talk with him a bit. I don’t want to say too much more, but there is a mystery in the book and it kind of is a summer of death. The back of the book says “it was a grim summer in which death visited frequently and assumed many forms. Accident. Nature. Suicide. Murder.”

I really liked this. It was slow moving, but I still enjoyed it. The pace did kind of pick up, maybe half way through the book. I was a bit concerned about how it would end, but it turned out as I “hoped” it would. ( )

Ordinary Grace is the story of the Drum family over one summer in a small town in Minnesota in the 1960s. The daughter, bound for Julliard in the fall and whom her two younger brothers look up to, is found murdered. ( )

My favorite book of 2020 as part of the slow reader's book club recommended by MaryAnn. A great story about young teenagers who solve local murders ( )

The summer Frank is thirteen, his small, rural town is rocked by four deaths and a mystery that entwines several prominent families and changes their lives forever. I was pleasantly surprised by this eloquent coming-of-age story. I'm not really into books about funny, folksy, saccharine small-town charm, so I'm always a little cautious approaching writing about small-town Minnesota (speaking as a Minnesotan myself). This is definitely not a funny book, and though the author definitely sets the place and time by making frequent local references, it was just shy of being too much. It was satisfying to guess fairly quickly which real Minnesota town New Bremen is modeled after based on geographic and industrial clues given in the text, and ultimately it also gave me a hankering for a rural Minnesota road trip.

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.
