KRUEGER, WILLIAM KENTORDINARY GRACE Atria Books 2014 1451645856 / 9781451645859 PAPERBACK . Atria Books 3/4/2014. New paperback. Store pick: Ordinary Grace is a beautifully written, atmospheric novel that is both a coming-of-age story and an homage to life in a small Midwestern town in the 1960s. It is a quiet, simple story with a huge message and wonderfully developed characters. While there is a murder, the identity of the perpetrator is secondary to how the residents and family members are affected by all the events of the summer of 1961. -Nancy M., store volunteer Edgar Award Winner for Best Novel.
