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.

It was so nice to reread "Christy" once again! I read this as a teenager and absolutely loved the story and this led me to start reading Janette Oke books and now I still think about the book while watching the series, "When Calls the Heart." This new edition is a nice hardcover edition with Catherine's mother pictured on the front, which I absolutely love, as the book "Christy" is based on the life of her mother and the stories that Catherine would hear growing up of her mother's experiences. "Christy" is such a refreshing and inspiring story about leaving your comfort zone and following your heart and following your passion and facing challenges while relying on God. This is a wonderful classic and one can be enjoyed year after year and by generation after generation; I am looking forward to my daughter reading this book in a few years!
