    I enjoyed this heartwarming story about a lonely man that moves to a very small town for what he believes will be his last Christmas I enjoyed the humor with which the author weaves this tale, the characters are rich and believable, and the relationship between the man and the Redbird Jack is touching and sweet I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the Fannie Flagg that I knew as a comedian was also an accomplished author This is an easy Christmas tale that I would recommend to readers I enjoyed this heartwarming story about a lonely man that moves to a very small town for what he believes will be his last Christmas I enjoyed the humor with which the author weaves this tale, the characters are rich and believable, and the relationship between the man and the Redbird Jack is touching and sweet I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the Fannie Flagg that I knew as a comedian was also an accomplished author This is an easy Christmas tale that I would recommend to readers of all ages

    A short, sweet book about life in small town America where good things happen to good people and bad things to bad people A place where everyone eventually meets the love of their life and lives happily ever after In other words suspend belief all ye who enter here but just settle back and enjoy it for what it is Not every book you read has to be a literary masterpiece

    Description 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 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.FlaggDescription 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 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.Opening The Windy City It was only November sixth but Chicago had just been hit with its second big blizzard of the season, and Mr Oswald T Campbell guessed he had stepped in every ice cold ankle deep puddle of dirty white slush it was possible to step in, trying to get to his appointment.Somewhat twee, yet not as saccharine as some Surely the term is Cajun not Creole, if my cult yar classes steered me right

    SPOILER ALERT Predictable Dripping with cliche Gaggably sappy.Dying man is cured Crippled orphan girl is healed and gets a mommy and a daddy Broken hearted bachelor finally gets to marry the true love of his youth Spinster finds true love Dead bird that everyone loved comes back sort of as a Christmas miracle Do I need to go on The rest of my book club LOVED it What does that say about me About my book club Not sure.

    Fannie Flagg writes inspirational novels and creates characters imbued with humor and goodness and moral integrity She is creating her own world, her own society within these settings, of perhaps how the world should be.not how it is The doing of good deeds is important and characters usually end with the achievement of self actualization in some form or another This community is usually symbolized in the small town, where neighbors support each other and the world of nature The intertwin Fannie Flagg writes inspirational novels and creates characters imbued with humor and goodness and moral integrity She is creating her own world, her own society within these settings, of perhaps how the world should be.not how it is The doing of good deeds is important and characters usually end with the achievement of self actualization in some form or another This community is usually symbolized in the small town, where neighbors support each other and the world of nature The intertwining of these themes brings about a feeling of not just comfort, but of healing Flagg also never fails to make me laugh

    I listened to this as an audiobook, read by Fannie Flagg She gives the perfect nuance to the quintessential southern charm she embodies in her novels Filled with loveable, eccentric characters that touched my heart, making me feel a part of their community Humourous, sometimes tragic and brimming with love and hope, a wonderful story of a Christmas miracle.

    I audio ed this and for anyone who has read Flagg and is familiar with her friendly style of story telling I cannot recommend listening to her read her own books enough I grew up in West Virginia so Flagg s accent reminds me of any number of my relatives She sounds so sweet and forgiving even when describing someone on a drinking binge You know what I mean, like when someone talks about how dumb or ugly someone is, but throws a bless their heart in every once in a while to take away the sti I audio ed this and for anyone who has read Flagg and is familiar with her friendly style of story telling I cannot recommend listening to her read her own books enough I grew up in West Virginia so Flagg s accent reminds me of any number of my relatives She sounds so sweet and forgiving even when describing someone on a drinking binge You know what I mean, like when someone talks about how dumb or ugly someone is, but throws a bless their heart in every once in a while to take away the sting.Like all of her other novels, this is set in small town, Lost River here, and Lost River is as much a character as any of the people We begin our story with an older man living in Chicago who is told he must move to the southern climate if he hopes to survivethan six months Through a series of coincidences and misunderstandings Oswald is able to rent a room for very little money in Lost River and packs up and migrates south.The majority of the story is about Oswald learning to care about the others in this small community and especially how to allow them to care for him in return In addition to the new adults he meets, Oswald s heart is stolen by an abandoned little girl, Patsy Not only is Patsy alone and poor, but she is has a deformity caused by an untreated injury that makes her drag her foot behind her Not only Oswald, but the entire town take it upon themselves to care for and raise this little girl She is a lifeline for Oswald and the love Flagg shows through the story is heartwarming without being sappy.I think Flagg s main talent is to temper her sweet stories with truth Real people do bad things, even the very, very good people Flagg s characters are no different People fight, drink and carry on, but their reasons allow you to love them Flagg s characters accept each other for what and who they are not what and who they want each other to be Too bad we aren t all like that

    Absolutely the best Christmas book ever It s sweet, funny and touching I ve read it 4 times and given copies to friends Fannie Flagg herself reads the audio version and I hear she s working on a movie version I vote for William H Macy for the lead.

    I read this bookthan seven years ago, but barely remembered it I was in the mood for a comfort, Christmas read, and this was perfect This story touched my heart, as pretty much all Fannie Flagg books do Yes, they often are a bit predictable and a bit like a Hallmark movie, but sometimes that s what we need Reading them makes me wish that I lived in that world full of southern charm, where people are genuinely hospitable, caring, and compassionate I read this bookthan seven years ago, but barely remembered it I was in the mood for a comfort, Christmas read, and this was perfect This story touched my heart, as pretty much all Fannie Flagg books do Yes, they often are a bit predictable and a bit like a Hallmark movie, but sometimes that s what we need Reading them makes me wish that I lived in that world full of southern charm, where people are genuinely hospitable, caring, and compassionate
