Book Review: Christy

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

About the book:

New edition of Catherine Marshall's inspirational classic!

The train taking nineteen-year-old teacher Christy Huddleston from her home in Asheville, North Carolina, might as well be transporting her to another world. The Smoky Mountain community of Cutter Gap feels suspended in time, trapped by poverty, superstitions, and century-old traditions.
But as Christy struggles to find acceptance in her new home, some see her - and her one-room school - as a threat to their way of life. Her faith is challenged and her heart is torn between two strong men with conflicting views about how to care for the families of the Cove.

Yearning to make a difference, will Christy's determination and devotion be enough?


About the author:

Catherine Marshall (1914-1983), The New York Times best-selling author of 30 books, is best known for her novel Christy. Based on the life of her mother, Christy captured the hearts of millions and became a popular CBS television series. Around the kitchen table at Evergreen Farm, as her mother reminisced, Catherine probed for details and insights into the rugged lives of these Appalachian highlanders. Catherine shared the story of her husband, Dr. Peter Marshall, Chaplain of the United States Senate, in A Man Called Peter. A decade after Dr. Marshall's untimely death, Catherine married Leonard LeSourd, Executive Editor of Guideposts, forging a dynamic writer-editor partnership. A beloved inspirational writer and speaker, Catherine's enduring career spanned four decades and reached over 30 million readers.

My Opinion

I don't know how I haven't heard of Christy until now but I am so glad I finally got a chance to read it 50 years after it was published! It is definitely a classic and once you read it, you will know how it has stood the test of time and been loved by many generations!

I especially love the setting of the Smoky Mountains and her hometown of Asheville - a place my husband and I have always dreamed of living! I was caught up in this book from the very first pages and I love even more that it is based on a real person and the stories she shared!

If you haven't read Christy yet, pick it up and don't let another 50 years go by without reading it!
