      So, full disclosure here. I didn't think I was going to like this book at all, in fact, was dreading the read. Didn't sound like "my kind of book" at all, and I figured I'd have to wade through the first part til I felt I had read enough to toss it aside without guilt.So I guess my first thing here has to be an apology to Randy Thornhorn, because, Boy, was I ever wrong! After the first chapter, which is admittedly confusing and difficult, I was increasingly charmed, then captivated by the Brass [...]

      This is not just "boo smoke and gossip" but this is a great and enjoyable read. Tons of these great little sayings through out the book. Read it for yourself to see how they fit together in this engaging tale. This was a group read for November in the group, On the Southern Literary Trail. The Brass Family is dysfunctional but this reader loved each and every one of them. They just make you smile and laugh at the way they interact with each other. Each bring something different to the table. I a [...]

      Here’s what you should know about Randy Thornhorn. He dives deep as a writer and creates a lyrical wonderland as a storyteller. He has the talent to blend a kind of mystical back drop with gritty southern realism that I didn’t think was possible. He did that with Wicked Temper, the first book I read written by him, and he did it again with Kestrel Waters, the second book I read by him. And I will read a third and fourth and onward until his pen stops bleeding or fingers stop tapping. He’s [...]

      Randy Thornhorn delivers a masterpiece with THE KESTREL WATERSRandy Thornhorn The Kestrel WatersI enjoyed The Kestrel Waters from the first page to the last. I didn’t want it to end. The journey (a musical odyssey really) Randy Thornhorn takes you on is vast and transcendent. And it's all so damn ENTERTAINING. His characters: Glenn, Kes, Betillia and especially Daddy Brass, are some of the most enjoyable I have ever had the pleasure to meet. Their story is so richly drawn as they rise and fall [...]

      This book kept showing up in my recommendations and in little ads on the right side of my screen. So I finally just downloaded it and gave it a try, and I am so happy I did because it blew mw away. This author has exactly what I love - a unique, sure, and strong voice. He's also a damn good storyteller. I can't wait to read every other book he has - which are all available on Kindle Umlimited by the way.

    7. Heidi on said:

      The Kestrel Waters was a fantastic trip into the deep and wicked South! Rich with texture and imagery, one can get lost in the imagination of author Thornhorn, and that is a good thing! Touching and moving, with heart and soul; mesmerizing and poetic (and did I say wicked?)

      A Tour De Force for Mr. Thornhorn!By Leslie BaileyI received a copy of The Kestrel Waters and once I began reading it I was hooked! I could not put it down! There was a magical, mystical feel about it and I adored the way Mr. Thornhorn made his characters so real. alive on the pages of his book. I enjoyed it so much that I downloaded "Wicked Temper" and spent another delightful day in the world of this amazing author's mind. Read these books. Enjoy the way that his words paint the most delicious [...]

      I love this book. Mr.Thornhorn's language is a wonderful dance. My minds ear keeps ringing to the tantalizing rhythm of the vivid people and places of the Brass universe. Give me more!

    11. Liz on said:

      The author of The Kestrel Waters, Randy Thornhorn, has a style that is unique and addictive. I have read some of his other works, I be The Christis, the Kid Beheaded, and Wicked Temper. It would be disappointing to read this author and not be immersed in the rich, archaic, and almost biblical language that does so much to create the world his characters live in. In the Kestrel Waters that world, for the majority of the story, is Savannah GA in the late sixties. Although, to me it seems a paralle [...]

    12. Laura Robertson on said:

      Opening the cover of The Kestrel Waters was like stepping off a plane into a vastly different time and place. Despite being unfamiliar-- but not entirely unknown to me, gospel music began to fill my head. Once I began to flow with the Southern cadence that lifted from the pages (was I too Northern to inhale all this Southern-ness?)-- I was anxiously pulled into this extraordinarily fine tale. The Brothers Brass seemed to share a heartbeat during their youth, yet their responses to love, song, fa [...]

    13. John Kelly on said:

      "Kestrel Waters" fits squarely in the genre of Magical Realism. More Cormac McCarthy than García Márquez, the novel explores issues of race, class and religious fundamentalism in a very real South that is persistent in the world of today. The dramatic arc of the story builds through elements of uniquely Southern mythology that underpin and sustain religious fundamentalism as well as racial and class divisions, through a climax where reality ultimately intersects with the supernatural.I wasn't [...]

    14. Catherine S on said:

      Living in Savannah, there is no fiction here with street names, the mind of its people, or the culture, unlike Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. An acutely accurate portrait of Savannah and an immersion in southern culture, from the pot liquor of collards, pone cakes, and pool halls to white gloves purchased on Broughton Street, probably at Adler's, " where fashion makes its debut". Refreshing for an author to actually use the real Savannah as a backdrop for a novel and be accurate in tha [...]

    15. Renee on said:

      Kestrel Waters is such a great read. I am an avid reader and have certain authors that I follow and now I have a new favorite! Mr. Thornhorn has done an outstanding job of creating a story so good that you do not want to put the book down. I love how this story jumps off the page at you and how you can just picture yourself right there, it is so vivid! This is definitely one of those books that you will read over and over! This type of talent is very rare. Thank you, Mr. Thornhorn!

    16. Becky on said:

      I read this book in one sitting. It is beautifully written. The characters are compelling and the story is solid. There is an overall haunting quality to the book that is hard to explain. If I had a lick of talent, I'd write a review worthy of this book. Unfortunately, I'm just a reader who knows a good book when she finds one. Read the book. You won't be disappointed.

    17. D.j. Broussard on said:

      Kestrel Waters is so well written and pulls you in from the beginning. Can't wait to read the next one!

      12/3/2014: It is now time for me to wave the white flag of surrender. I am not going to finish this book! Added: The GR group On the Southern Literary Trail has selected this book to read for November 2014 so I am putting it back on my Currently Reading list. If a group of adults are willing to put this book on a group reading list, it must be better than I think. I will give it another try!Sorry, Randy. I have read the first third of the book and I have read the almost unanimous five star revie [...]

    19. Angela Guilford on said:

      The majority of this book transpires in Savannah, Georgia--a long lost Savannah back in the Sixties and World War II. In fact, it's probably the best book ever written about Savannah, the best bluegrass music novel ever written--one of the best books about music and love and loss ever written. And the scary parts blow Stephen King out of the water! It was intense.

    20. Peggy T on said:

      I especially appreciate books about redemption and love. Add great characters, an absorbing plot, and a soupçon of horror, and you get The Kestrel Waters. The book takes place in the early ’60’s world of Savannah and Appalachia, and captures that sense of place and time beautifully. You won't regret giving this one a read.

    21. Amberlyn on said:

      Wonderfully written, this is a story that comes alive and compels the reader on. These characters feel real, the story captures your imagination and stays with you long after you read the last page. I will be keeping it for a re-read in the future.

    22. Lisa Sanchez on said:

      This is a fantastic book and a must read. Kestrel Waters is beautifully written and Mr. Thornhorn is very talented. The author’s creativity takes the reader into the Deep South and into the crazy lives of a couple of brothers. Now, I can’t wait to read “Wicked Temper” the prequel.

    23. Janice Radcliff on said:

      Unique and captivating. It is a wild ride and a really great read. Story telling at its best.

    24. Kim on said:

      Could. Not. Put. It. Down. This is an absolutely thrilling page turner! I'm going back to order the prequel "Wicked Temper" now! Well played, Mr. Thornhorn!

      I won a free copy of The Kestrel Waters through a giveaway on , in return, this is my review.Oh. My. God.While I am quite the picky reader, I found myself lost in this story. I never wanted to put the book down. The characters are beautifully crafted with so much mystery that leaves you wanting to learn more. Bettilia is the most mysterious. She has a past that leaves you questioning everything about her. She is wild and unorthodox. Kestrel is more of the curious and rebellious sort- though Glen [...]

      I won this book through goodread's giveaway program. "I didn't expect to care for the characters the way I do.or be as concerned for them as I became. And I certainly didn't expect to finish this book with a lump in my throat, tears in my eyes, and the sense of having experienced something profound." - Jeffrey LindnerThere are no better words to describe how I felt about this book. Jeffrey was right. While I may not have had tears in my eyes, I did feel like I experienced something profound afte [...]

    27. Lisa Mahaffey on said:

      This book takes us away, to another place, days gone by, to be with people who "are real", more real than we are at times. They make us feel and think, and wish for those feelings, that love, that realness. It showed us two people who were able to be "in the warm" of each other; real love. I loved Bettilia. I needed and wanted to read about her horrible past, and how it made her the force and the presence that she became; an old soul, with a sensitive and spiritual nature, without ego, fostering [...]

    28. Elaine St john on said:

      Wow! I had a really hard time putting this down; fabulous characters and a perfect amount of mystery to keep me going. I was transported back in time to the 1950s (?) to places familiar and worlds fantastic; - bizarre and frightening places like Riddletop and the carnival with their freaks both real and manufactured, - genteel Southern society and other side of the tracks honky-tonks. Thought-provoking issues of race, dysfunctional families and characters battling their demons would pull me in d [...]

    29. Whittnee on said:

      There is a lot to this book. I did not think I was going to like it when I started reading it and the first chapter seemed so odd in the patterns of speech as well as Kes and Glenn's mannerisms. But it came highly recommended from a friend and so I stuck with it. And I am so glad that I did. This is a story that hooks as you fall into the story of the Kess, Glenn, Daddy Bass, Bettilia, Mamma George and the other characters that swirl around them. Then as you start to grasp how the people connect [...]

    30. Monica Ganz on said:

      The Kestrel Waters is one of the few books that from the moment I began to read it I did not want to put it down until the very end. The story is extremely well written with just the right amount of romance, adventure, and suspense that had me curling my toes as I read this on my kindle. It is filled with ups and downs which to me is what made this love story more then just a random collection of words. One of my favorite things about this was the descriptions of the settings where it takes plac [...]
