Ordinary Grace by William Kent Kruger FIC/Kru/large print section
It was hard to see anything positive, in a summer in which death seemed grimly present in its various ways – suicide, nature, and accident. Thirteen-year-old Frank Drum struggles to see where God is in all the troubles he sees and feels. Forty years later he tells his story of discovery, in that awful summer, of the love and the enduring grace of God.
Raised in the Cascade Mountains of Oregon, William Kent Krueger briefly attended Stanford University, before being kicked out for radical activities. After that, he logged timber, worked construction, tried his hand at freelance journalism, and eventually ended up researching child development at the University of Minnesota. He currently makes his living as a full-time author. He has been married for over 40 years to a marvelous woman who is an attorney. They make their home in St. Paul.
As interesting as this official bio is, it is more interesting (and puzzling) to have this powerful testament to ordinary grace from a mystery writer who has been a consistent New York Times bestselling author. To solve this conundrum was why this book was bought for the library. We have recommended it to many readers because of the lessons revealed and the tender, beautifully written story of a difficult time.
