From New York Times bestselling author, William Kent Krueger comes a brilliant new novel about a young man, a small town, and murder in the summer of 1961.
On the surface, Ordinary Grace is the story of the murder of a beautiful young woman, a beloved daughter and sister. At the heart, it’s the story of what that tragedy does to a boy, his family, and ultimately the fabric of the small town in which he lives.
It is a 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.
