With the same incomparable style and warm, inviting voice that have made her beloved by millions of readers far and wide, New York Times bestselling author Fannie Flagg has written an enchanting Christmas story of faith and hope for all ages that is sure to become a classic.
Deep in the southernmost part of Alabama, along the banks of a lazy winding river, lies the sleepy little community known as Lost River, a place that time itself seems to have forgotten. After a startling diagnosis from his doctor, Oswald T. Campbell leaves behind the cold and damp of the oncoming Chicago winter to spend what he believes will be his last Christmas in the warm and welcoming town of Lost River. There he meets the postman who delivers mail by boat, the store owner who nurses a broken heart, the ladies of the Mystic Order of the Royal Polka Dots Secret Society, who do clandestine good works. And he meets a little redbird named Jack, who is at the center of this tale of a magical Christmas when something so amazing happened that those who witnessed it have never forgotten it. Once you experience the wonder, you too will never forget A Redbird Christmas.

A Redbird Christmas

A wonderful feel-good book. A man in Chicago (Oswald) is given only a few weeks to live. He moves to southern Alabama. He meets all the people of the town of Lost River. The storekeeper finds a redbird (Cardinal) that had been shot in the wing and nurses it back to health. The bird lives in the general store and learns many tricks. Little 5 year old crippled Patsy comes to the store and falls in love with Jack the redbird. Many miracles occur. Patsy gets her crippled legs fixed. Oswald is cured. The shopkeeper and others find love and everybody lives happily ever after.

Sweet book!

This book is perfect for the times when you want a sweet, light easy read. Perfect by the fire with a hot cup of yummy, the characters quickly become friends you want to know. From Oswald the newcomer to the quaint coastal Alabama town to little waif Patsy whose life becomes meaningful after she meets her best friend,Jack, the folks rally around each other. While the plot is a bit predictable and the end ties up things a bit too nicely, I still enjoyed it! Looking forward to more Fannie Flagg!
