Item description for Our Kinfolks by Ed Krause...

This is a story about Northerners who have moved to the South and the Southerners who must live with them. Set in the mid-1980, Our Kinfolks portrays two families living next to each other in a small mountain cove called Corn Still. Although the adults clash over their beliefs, their 14-year-old sons soon become good friends. This novel portrays the boys' relationship, their adventures, and tribulations in growing up. There are, of course, complications: the Northern family stirs things up with the local political structure, a danger follows the family from the North, and the health of one of the boys deteriorates. All of the problems get resolved in a heart-warming, unexpected and suspenseful ending. The novel, full of diverse characters and situations, gives a rich, believable, and humorous portrayal of small towns and country living.

Reviews - What do customers think about Our Kinfolks?

Excellent Read  Apr 10, 2007
As a resident of Western North Carolina and a former teacher, I can identify with these characters. Some of the descriptions are so clear that I pictured them happening in locations near to my home. The characters are realistic and funny and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book.
Our Kinfolks is a realistic tale  Mar 5, 2006
The characters in this novel are so life-like I often forgot I was reading 'fiction'. It's set in a realistic, small town atmosphere. There are also many memorable events, several 'close to home' for me and could've described many people in my own mountain town. One incident involving a trailer and a pond sounds very 'familiar' (I think this one was real?).
Rick Queen and his family move South to Corn Still after New Jersey becomes too 'hot' for the family to live there safely. Rick, a newspaper man, exposes corruption in the big city, and after the court verdicts are handed down, the Queen family receives many threats. They hope to find peace in Corn Still, but after living with its wacky residents a while, they wonder if they've gone from the frying pan into the fire! The book is full of humor, but also has a tense, bittersweet conclusion.

Chrissy K. McVay - author of 'Souls of the North Wind'
