By Randy Thornhorn / Genre: Romance, Literary Fiction / Rating: 4.7 out of 5 stars (52 reviews)

The Kestrel Waters: A Tale of Love and Devil (RiddleTop Southern Gothic)

”Captures the tragedy of romantic and familial love better than any story I have ever read.” ~ Janeiro Bento

The towering and incredible Southern love story The Kestrel Waters has now received 5-Star ratings from over 9 out 10 readers, including raves from celebrity authors and critics, and is a Book-Of-Month pick by the largest online Southern book club, On The Southern Literary Trail (Goodreads).

Hear the night song of Kestrel. He has not always been this dark-winged angel. He was once a star, a guitar star so righteous. He was once a lost boy in love.

In The Beginning were two grassroots singers, The Brothers Brass. In The End there is no end to what one wounded girl’s heart will give. And no end to what one brother will give for the other.

Raised in Savannah by the sea, together, The Brothers Brass voices chime like heavenly bells. The oldest brother Kestrel falls in love with a girl named Bettilia, a wild child who hides in the treetops—hiding from her bad daddy on a haunted mountain called Riddle Top.

Soon all the Family Brass falls for Bettilia. She touches Kestrel, she touches everyone. And they touch sweet Bettilia, forever. Then comes that fateful day when Kestrel says “I do” to his dance with the devil—his devil within and without.

The Kestrel Waters is an eerie, heroic, and beautiful Southern Gothic story of human love, like none you’ve ever known. An epic fable of an epic family whose hearts are comic, profane, and profoundly true.
