A Redbird Christmas by Fannie Flagg
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I read this book as part of the Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge and it was definitely filled with Christmas Spirit. Oswald Campbell was told by his doctor in Chicago that if he didn't get out of the cold city, he would be dead by Christmas. He also gave him a brochure of a little place in Alabama that his father sent people to to get out of the north cold. Oswald investigated and made the trip to Lost River, Alabama. There he found a community of wonderful people who welcomed him and helped him develop a new outlook on life. Oswald's story isn't the only one in this book. It's also a story of a little girl, Patsy and her best friend, Jack - an injured Northern Cardinal. I'm not saying more than that because you will just have to read the book. It moves quickly and is a bit predictable, but you're never really sure what will really happen next. I enjoyed it very much.
