Description

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.

    This is such a fun book to read, especially during the Christmas season. I liked all the characters and know actual folks just Ike them. The last few books I have read had very little plot and no ending, just a buy Book 2. This heartwarming story had a beginning, a middle and an ending, a happy one at that. If you want to feel good, this book will appeal to both male and female readers who like to smile.

    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!
