This book fed my heart and soul! No, I don't even know how to describe how amazing and life changing and wonderful this book is! In fact, that is all I have to say! All I can say! I can ramble on for literally pages about this book and still not get to how wonderful it is! This book isn't just a must read...this is a must HAVE! It is a book I know I will be returning to and one that just blew the socks off me! Love. This. Book. <3
My 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.
This 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!
This 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!!!!
