LoveReading View on A Redbird Christmas

A short (176 pages) tale of hope, love and joy which is full of good-hearted characters in typical Fannie Flagg fashion (she of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle-Stop Café).  It is an absolute delight and falls just the right side of saccharine, leaving you feeling warm and misty-eyed.

Comparison: Rebecca Wells, Adriana Trigiani, Lorna Landvik.

A Redbird Christmas Synopsis

Oswald T. Campbell, aged fifty-two, down-and-out in a Chicago winter, is given only months to live unless he moves South. He finds himself in the small town of Lost River, Alabama, where the residents are friendly if feud-prone and eccentric to a fault. One of them, Roy, keeps a red cardinal, a once wounded bird called Jack, in the village store. Patsy, a sad, sweet little kid with a crippled leg, from the trailer park up in the woods, takes to dropping by the store - and falls in love with Jack. Flagg takes us on an emotional roller-coaster ride through the lives and hearts of an engaging crew of misfits, fixers and ordinary good-hearted folk, set against the vivid natural backdrop of a mellow Alabama winter, along the riverside where birds and fish abound. Her enchanting story culminates at Christmastide with surprises and a magical 'redbird' moment.
