Oswald T. Campbell doesn’t have long to live according to his Dr. in Chicago and is encouraged to find a warmer place to live out his last days. The Dr. provides a brochure for a hotel in Lost River, Alabama. Oswald decides it won’t hurt anything and heads south. During his stay he meets some fine characters, his landlady, the sisters next door, a redbird named Jack and many more, all making a mark on his life as he does theirs. Suddenly, Campbell the little orphan named after the can of soup he was found with, has what some would call a family. When a little girl named Patsy arrives in town she steals everyone’s heart and causes quite a few changes for everyone
This is a very nice Christmas read with a little surprise at the end.
I have been a fan of Fannie Flagg for years, and this book doesn’t disappoint.
