In the year 1912, nineteen-year-old Christy Huddleston leaves home to teach school in the Smoky Mountains -- and comes to know and love the resilient people of the region, with their fierce pride, their dark superstitions, their terrible poverty, and their yearning for beauty and truth. But her faith will be severely challenged by trial and tragedy, by the needs and unique strengths of two remarkable young men, and by a heart torn between true love and unwavering devotion.
And don't miss another heart-soaring bestseller from Catherine Marshall: Julie
Born in Johnson City, Tennessee, the daughter of Minister John Ambrose Wood and his wife Leonora, Catherine Marshall was married to Presbyterian minister and Chaplain of the U.S. Senate Peter Marshall. After her husband's death, she wrote his biography, A Man Called Peter, a book that enjoyed tremendous success and became a major motion picture. She followed with numerous devotional books and three novels, two of which -- Christy and Julie -- became national bestsellers. Christy was also made into an extremely popular television series. Catherine Marshall died in 1983, but the popularity of her inspirational writings continues.
“Wonderful...an epic novel”.
“An affirmation of faith... A clear impression of the proud Scotch-Irish mountaineers and their harsh, lonely lives.”
“A powerfully moving book of great depth.”
“It has something that keeps the reader reading…Relevant and heart-opening…Rich, dramatic.”
“An inspiring story. With skill, Catherine Marshall has described human qualities common to all people everywhere.”
“A novel of celebration…wholesome, inspiring…Enjoyable reading.”

Kathryn Alkire5 Stars Out Of 5January 24, 2010Kathryn AlkireMy mother gave me a copy of Christy when I was a teenager. I loved it then and re-read it until the pages were roughed and difficult to read. As a grandmother, I am getting ready to purchase Christy to give to my eldest granddaughter. I still find the story one I can't put down until I get to tired to continue. The story is one of true love of God and teaching. Christy Huddleston is a true example of dedication and how we should let God lead us to do what He wants us to do. I truly recommend Christy and other Catherine Marshall writings for any young girl or older girls - no matter the age, it is a wonderous read.
Natalie5 Stars Out Of 5September 2, 2009NatalieThis book has officially become my favorite. I read it for the first time about a year ago all the way through with a friend, and we loved it so much. I recieved my own copy of it for my birthday and I pick it up sometimes just to re-read the parts I love so much. There are so many applicable truths in it and much of what Chrisy went through, questioned, or thought about I could completely relate to. I think any Christian girl should read this book. It's enjoyable, truthful, well-written, and encouraging. Check it out!
Alyson5 Stars Out Of 5February 3, 2009AlysonThis is an excellent book, that teaches many outstanding lessons. Everyone should read this absolutely inspiring book over and over. Every time I read it, I am amazed at the truths it teaches--new ones that I discover with each reading. Personally, I love how it ends!! If you look between the lines, there is really not much mystery involved. Besides, imagining the ending is part of the joy of this truly GREAT book!!! Also, I am impressed in how many of the scenes in the book was replicated so accurately in the movies. At times I can here the movie characters speaking the lines as I read them. Of course, every thing is not exactly the same, but the movies still succeeded is capturing the true feeling of the "Christy message." I am also impressed in how the characters described in the book seem to match the ones choosen for the movies--Ruby Mae, Doc. MacNeil, David, Fairlight all seem so closely matched. For the book and the movie series I give them a 10 out of 5 stars!!!!
