November 8, 2007: This book was just moved to the short list. Well, actually, it's quite a HILL next to MOUNT To-Be-Read, but at least it's getting to see the light of day, and you will see a new journal entry sooner rather than later.

From Publishers Weekly: "... Lured by a brochure his doctor gives him after informing him that his emphysema has left him with scarcely a year to live, 52-year-old Oswald T. Campbell abandons wintry Chicago for Lost River, Ala., where he believes he'll be spending his last Christmas. Bestselling author Flagg (Fried Green Tomatoes, Standing in the Rainbow) 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.)"

I've just finished reading this and went to make a JE on it and couldn't find it on my shelf,I must have missed making a JE when it arrived with me,I feel so bad about this. Please forgive me kobie03, I didn't mean to be so rude, I can only think that when it arrived so many book were poping through my door that I somehow missed it,I am so,so sorry.
When I finished reading it about an hour ago, it left me with a warm glow inside,it was a wonderful book and I intend to offer it as a Christmas RABCK in the next few weeks.

9 out of 10

Great book to read just before the Christmas stress starts, finished it just before December starts. Small story with a very happy end, as you would expect from a Christmas story. Certainly a Fannie Flagg book worth reading, just as good as the other ones.
Now off to find a new reader for it ;)

Not great literature, of course, but a heart-warming story nevertheless. Good pre-holiday reading :)

I read this during Christmas holiday and it was a heart-warming story to read. Oswald does what the doctor orders and moves to Lost River, a small town, and becomes part of the community. Patsy is a little crippled girl who loves to visit Jack, a tame redbird, and the community wants to give this girl the care she needs.
