New Bremen, Minnesota in the summer of 1961 is described as “a time of innocence and hope for a country with a new, young president.”  “The Twins were playing their debut season, ice-cold root beers were selling out at the counter of Holderson’s Drugstore and Hot Stuff  comic books were a mainstay on every barbershop magazine rack.”

“Frank begins the season preoccupied with the concerns of any teenage boy, but when tragedy unexpectedly strikes his family—which includes his Methodist minister father; his passionate, artistic mother; Juilliard-bound older sister; and wise-beyond-his-years kid brother—he finds himself thrust into an adult world full of secrets, lies, adultery, and betrayal, suddenly called upon to demonstrate a maturity and gumption beyond his years.

Told from Frank’s perspective forty years after that fateful summer, Ordinary Grace is a brilliantly moving account of a boy standing at the door of his young 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.”
