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.

    " Heartwarming fluff. Great audio to listen to on the way to work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 1/28/2014

    " A very fun book to read. The author also wrote Fried Green Tomatoes so that should give you an idea about the style of book this is. I found my self LOL. Great read before Christmas. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Helen | 1/22/2014

    " Set in Alabama, this book is so like Susan Wittig Albert's Darling Dahlias series. It's a feel-good book with a happy ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa Newton | 1/14/2014

    " Good but not laugh out loud like her other books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Margo | 1/14/2014

    " Charming, utterly charming. A short, sweet read. Oswald T. Campbell is an unlikely protagonist, just a lost soul who ends up on Lost River in Alabama, but the story isn't really about him in the end, he's just part of it. This Flagg book was a bit reminiscent of a Mitford tale, I thought. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Advie | 1/7/2014

    " This book is one of the local libraries monthly bookclub books...I look forward to reading it from the discription. Her books do get better and better...she has come a long way since the "Match Game" days. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aredhel | 12/31/2013

    " Not my cup of tea. It was a fast, easy read though. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Becky Roper | 12/23/2013

    " One of my book clubs is reading this. I was hoping for a little more substance - to me it read like juvenile fiction. I have read her book "Fried Green Tomatoes" and seem to recall liking it more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara Cat | 12/22/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marianne | 9/6/2013

    " A cute, short Holiday story. A little cheesy but that seems to be par for the course with these types of books. Hard to say much about it seeing as how it was so short. I must admit that there was one moment that caught me off guard and I actually laughed which doesn't happen often in books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz McBee | 11/12/2011
