Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger
"All the dying that summer began with the death of a child, a boy with golden hair and thick glasses, killed on the railroad tracks outside New Bremen, Minnesota, sliced into pieces by a thousand tons of steel speeding across the prairie toward South Dakota."
In this town, in 1961, there are an unusual number of deaths, and they impacted 13-year-old Frank more than you might think because his father is the Methodist minister and presides over a lot of the funerals.
