When divorced Chicago native Oswald Campbell discovers his rapidly approaching death, his elderly doctor hands him a faded brochure for a hotel in Alabama. The physician recommends it as a fitting place to live out the remainder of Oswald’s days. After discovering the hotel burned down years prior, a local offers to allow Oswald room and board in her home. Without a moment of hesitation, Oswald packs his meager possessions and boards a train for Alabama.
He arrives in a very small town populated with a cast of typical Flagg characters – down home, quirky folks with welcoming ways. He quickly settles in, discovers a new passion for bird watching as there’s not much else to do, and waits for his impending death.
His newfound friends and lifestyle lead to amazing transformations; changing Oswald’s life for the better.
I recommend this novel. It will warm your heart!
