Story Behind the Book
"The Christy Miller series was actually born when a group of thirteen-year-olds challenged me to write a novel. Id been questioning the content of their favorite books when they said, Why dont you write a book for us? I told them no, I only wrote picture books. But they persisted: How hard could it be? Well even tell you what to write! We want a love story with teenagers at the beach. And there you go. Summer Promise first released seventeen years ago and is now translated into five languages. I continue to hear from readers all over the world, many girls saying that they gave their life to Christ after reading Summer Promise . I love that!" Robin Jones Gunn

BookNerd20005 Stars Out Of 5Awesome Book Series!!!January 7, 2016BookNerd2000Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Haha, pun intended! But seriously, this is such an amazing, awesome, inspiring book series! I found so much inspiration through Christy Miller and her friends. I am holding out for a hero, and saving my first kiss for my future husband. This series really helped me to focus every situation of my life on Jesus. Christy reminds me a lot of me, she is daring, shy, sweet, sensitive and can be super emotional, just like a teenage girl should be. The characters are all very realistic and I felt like they were my family. The world is blessed by such an author as Robin Jones Gunn. Robin, I am positive God is smiling down at you right now. Well done, his good and faithful servant.

I've given a review of each story below.
A Time to Cherish
Christy, her friends, and her aunt and uncle take a houseboat vacation to Lake Shasta. She and Todd finally agree to start dating. And while this seems to make their relationship even better, it ruins everything for Katie and Doug, who now feel like third wheels. How is a girl to behave when she has a boyfriend and her best friend doesn't? And when Katie does find MichaelÃ¢â¬âa guy who isn't a ChristianÃ¢â¬âhow is Christy supposed to be a good friend? By telling Katie the truth or by giving her the freedom to crash and burn? Christy doesn't know.
This was a great story. After so much time that Christy had patiently waited for Todd, I was thrilled that they were finally together. But I could feel her pain with the situation with Katie. When our dear friends are in relationships that are destructive, it's hard to know what to do or say. With Todd's nearly always perfect advice, Christy learned how to love her friend no matter what.
In this story, Katie breaks up with Michael, and Christy tries to learn how to cope with someone who is constantly depressed. It seems like everything she does to try and help Katie is the wrong thing to do.
This book was one of my favorites! And it was so bittersweet. Christy learned from Katie's pain and was obedient to God, and it was beautiful! And sad. I cried, I admit it. But I have hope for the future.
A Promise is Forever
This book fast-forwards a year. Christy is halfway through her freshman year in college. She, Doug, Tracy, and Katie travel to London for a mission trip. Christy is searching for a calling, to discover what she should do with her life. What she finds instead is total trust in God.
This book was another one of my favorites, though I have to admit, I was getting pretty grouchy alongside Christy when I realized what was happening with Doug. Still, this book was a beautiful example of how weÃ¢â¬âwith our selfish emotionsÃ¢â¬âneed to get out of the way and let God work. I almost cheered out loud when I got to the end. You just have to read these books yourself to see what I mean.
I very highly recommend this entire series for girls ages 12 and up. I adore these books. Christy is a lovely example of a Christian teen, who struggles with almost everything you can imagine. There is no better set of books out there to help young girls prepare for life. I will be putting this entire series in the church library. Someday, my little girl will read them. And while I wait for my girl to grow, I will go read Christy and Todd: the College Years.

Each book made me laugh and cry with the characters. I loaned my books (then sold individually) to someone and never received them back, so I purchased these to replace them. Any mother with a teenage daughter should consider buying these books. They are spiritually sound and deal with tough subject matter, but always with a victorious ending. I am now a pastor's wife and bought these books specifically to loan out to the youth ladies at our church. I can't stress enough how good these will are for young ladies! Worth the investment, but I still miss the individual books. The art work was beautiful.
