WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 10        JC READS, 9:30am – The book this month is Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger

New Bremen, Minnesota, 1961 - a time of innocence and hope for a country with a new, young president. But for thirteen-year-old Frank Drum it was a grim summer in which death visited frequently and assumed many forms. Accident. Nature. Suicide. Murder.  Told from Frank’s perspective, Ordinary Grace is a brilliantly moving account of a boy 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.
