I started reading the Christy Miller series when I was 12. Now as an adult I still like to go back and read the College years and Katie's series. These were some of the books I grew up on. They are funny, sweet, romantic, heartfelt, and Godly.
In short, they are real.
I read an earlier review which basically said these books were not at all Christian. And since these books have been my companions for a good decade, I felt the need to defend them.
So just to clarify a few things.
These books ARE Christian, and HAVE GOD IN THEM. And God just may touch you through reading them.
Are the characters like us completely? Obviously not. Are they perfect? No way! That's how we relate to them! They mess up and make huge mistakes and have some major attitude problems. They are "human." Just like us! :) But despite it all, they love God and do their humanly best to follow Him. And that's why these books are so good. It's us.
I love how the characters in this book are so real. They do relate to people in my life. I have a crazy Katie, a gentle Tracy, and a free-spirited Sierra. These are such great Christian books. Mrs. Gunn I think you did a fantastic job!! oh yeah, I love the new Katie Weldon book
Lol. these books crack me up sooooo much. Firstly, Christy, Todd, Katie, Doug, Tracy, Rick. All fake people!!!!Some of the reviews i read really make me sad. these are romance books with a little bit of Christianity thrown in. My friend who is a real and true atheist recognizes how un-christ like Christy and Todd are. We both agree that the best character is Katie because she is real. If the author did not make Christy a "christain" she would be just like Katie desperate and lonely. this book is well written, but should not be under the title of Christian book.
I loved this book!!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved all of the Christy Miller books!!! And I loved the College Years even better!!!! Untill Tomorrow wasn't as good as As you wish and I promise, but they were still really great!!! I love how even though Todd wanted to marry Christy like two years ago, he waited because he knew her year in Switzerland was an important year in her life and how he knew he didn't have enough money to support them yet. I hope that when I grow up I'll meet a guy just like Todd... Well actually I think a mixture between Doug, Rick, and Todd would be great! But I know that God already has someone pickt that will be perfect for me!! Thank You Robin!!!
