A Book We Love: A Redbird Christmas
A Redbird Christmas by Fannie Flagg

When a very sick Chicagoan moves to Lost River, Alabama to live out his last days in warmth and comfort, he is surprised by the attentiveness of the small town’s spinsters. Their ruthless pursuit of this eligible bachelor makes for some funny moments, but he is busy elsewhere – getting more involved in the life of an abandoned young crippled girl. As Christmas nears, this heartwarming tale becomes magical, ensuring a lovely holiday for all!

This book is one of my very favorites. I always read it just before Christmas because you never know when Redbird might make an appearance. Plus Fannie Flagg is an incredible author. She makes you laugh and cry at the same time. Yes I'd recommend this story to anyone. And I do.

Here's another holiday read that's fun to return to year after year - "Winter Solstice" by Rosamunde Pilcher!
