Ordinary Grace

Brokenness. Any reader looking for a reaffirmation of the basic goodness in humanity will enjoy reading William Kent Kruger’s finely written novel, Ordinary Grace. Narrated by Frank Drum at age 53, the action in the novel takes place during the summer of 1961 in the small town of New Bremen, Minnesota, when Frank was 13. Every member of the Drum family and each character in the novel suffers from some form of brokenness. What Kruger develops so well in these characters and in the plot is the transformation from the broken part of our human condition toward caring, love and understanding. Readers on any spiritual journey will find familiar themes in this novel. I finished this novel and felt good about myself, my community, and all of humanity. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase Ordinary Grace from amazon.com.
