Description
"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...." writes Fannie Flagg, also the author and screenwriter of Fried Green Tomatoes. After his doctor's bleak prognosis, 52-year-old Oswald T. Campbell flees the Chicago winter to spend his last Christmas in idyllic Lost River, where he meets a postman who delivers mail by boat, a storeowner who nurses a broken heart, and the benevolent ladies of the Mystic Order of the Royal Polka Dots Secret Society. And he meets a feisty little redbird named Jack, who is at the center of this magical Christmas tale.

"[Fannie Flagg] makes this down-home story about good neighbors and the power of love sparkle with wit and humor, as she tells of Oswald's new life in a town with one grocery store and a resident cardinal (or redbird, as the natives call it). Frances Cleverdon, one of four widows and three single women in town, hopes to fix him up with her sister, Mildred—if only Mildred wouldn't keep dying her hair outrageous colors every few days. The quirky story takes a heartwarming turn when Frances and Oswald become involved in the life of Patsy Casey, an abandoned young girl with a crippled leg. As Christmas approaches, the townspeople and neighboring communities—even the Creoles, whose long-standing feud with everybody else keeps them on the other side of the river—rally round shy, sweet Patsy. Flagg is a gifted storyteller who knows how to tug at readers' heartstrings, winding up her satisfying holiday tale with the requisite Christmas miracle."—Publishers Weekly
