Inspired by the fervent idealism of a missionary speaker, Christy Huddleston abandons her prospects for a comfortable, conventional life in her North Carolina hometown to teach penniless, barefoot children in the Smoky Mountains to read. Young and naive, Christy is ill-prepared for the hardships, superstition, and lawlessness of this isolated village. But she's determined to see God change hearts---even if one of them is hers! 501 pages, softcover from Avon.
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.
