'A Redbird Christmas' by Fannie Flagg

 

A feel good book for a Christmas read. A friend leant it to me. It is a bit goody goody in parts, but a nice easy read. Makes you feel like is this place too good to be true.

Amazon blurb

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, 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. Her enchanting story culminates at Christmas time with surprises and a magical 'redbird' moment.

'Lucky' by Alice Sebold

'The Scent of Water' by Alison Hoblyn (another Transita book)

 

Recommend them both. Lucky was a harrowing but compelling read.Again both were bookrings I joined on bookcrossing. 'The Scent of Water' was a lovely gentle read, based a lot of the time in Tuscany.

'We Need To Talk About Kevin' by Lionel Shriver

Not sure how I would describe this book, very well written but another harrowing read. Description of the actual event was a bit gruesome and made my stomach churn! Hope my son never gets involved in anything like Kevin!!!:D
