Hope Is the Thing with Feathers by Brandon Witt – Stocking Stuffers


Fifty-six-year-old Samuel Phillips is all alone on his small farm in the Ozarks, with nothing but a menagerie of chickens, pheasants, turkeys, and other birds as company—which is just the way he likes it. In fact, if Samuel had his way, he’d tear down his neighbor’s house so his solitude could be absolute. One day Faloola, his favorite turkey, escapes, forcing Samuel to make the trek next door. When Raymond Webber—sixty-seven—answers the door as naked as the day he was born, Samuel doesn’t know whether he’s more annoyed… or attracted. The two men are opposites in every way—Samuel is serious, while Raymond believes in free love and herbal relaxation. The weeks leading up to Christmas are rocky to say the least, but some holiday spirit might help them get past their differences…

Ruthie☆☆☆☆
I love romantic Christmas novellas, as they bring all the magic and excitement of Christmas to life with plenty of heartwarming passion.

This is a really quirky, but absolutely lovely story. It has some very unexpected scenes and some lovely reminiscences, some of which are quite pointed. I can imagine that it has some basis in reality, as spending so long alone definitely has an effect on one's levels of empathy and expectation. That Raymond was prepared to be patient and persistent was encouraging – but the new arrivals on Christmas Eve were perfect. His earlier gaffe hopefully forgiven by Samuel (I am not sure I ever will!).

Thank you, Mr. Witt, for a different, but very entertaining and heartwarming Christmas tale.



BRANDON WITT’s outlook on life is greatly impacted by his first eighteen years of growing up gay in a small town in the Ozarks, as well as fifteen years as a counselor and special education teacher for students with severe emotional disabilities. Add to that his obsession with corgis and mermaids, then factor in an unhealthy love affair with cheeseburgers, and you realize that with all those issues, he’s got plenty to write about…
