This one has been on my TBR pile for some time and was part of this summer's Barnes and Noble lawsuit haul.
This is the story about one summer in Minneapolis, 1961. It was a summer of death and mystery. Many things happen to many people. Strange for a place that seems as if not much actually does happen there. This is the story of Frank and his family. His father is the local preacher. His mother, a talented musician who fell in love with a law student and ended up with a life much different than she anticipated. His older sister, who shares his mother's musical gift, if off to Juilliard and his younger brother - a bit of a misfit with a stutter.
It's an ordinary book about an ordinary place and yet, really it is more than that. I love when a book has a meaningful title and this one certainly does. I would recommend it to a friend - particularly those who enjoy mysteries.
I gave it four stars.
