Fannie Flagg turns her magical story-telling talent to a short and poignant Christmas story for all the family. Oswald T. Campbell, aged 52, 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. The enchanting story culminates at Christmastide with miracles and a magical 'redbird' moment.

An irresistible tale of enchantment and miracles at Christmas, with the classic heartbreaking appeal of Paul Gallico's The Snow Goose and all of Fannie Flagg's inimitable charm and humour.
