Christy Huddleston left home at 19 to teach school in the Smokey Mountains. There she came to know and love the wild mountain people with their fierce pride, their dark superstitions, their terrible poverty, their yearning for beauty and truth. Christy found her faith severely challenged in these primitive surroundings; and, confronted with two young men of unique strength and needs, she found her own growing yearnings challenged by love.

    " I also have enjoyed viewing the full television series,”Christy,” adapted from this novel. I so delighted in each that I cannot say that the original novel, nor the television series was more enjoyable than the other! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deborah | 2/14/2014

    " This is such a fine book -- a wonderful, interesting, poignant story filled with unforgettable characters. Very well written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 1/22/2014

    " Throughly enjoyed this book and have read it several times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 1/15/2014

    " This is one of two books that I have read seven times over the years. A true story, based on the life of Catherine Marshall's mother, who spends her time as a teacher with the families in the mountains of the south. Full of beauty, sorrow, struggles, it is a winner. The movie is nothing like the book at all. The ending in the book is so beautiful that if you have only seen the movie read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ally | 1/14/2014

    " Amazing! I've owned this book for years and only just read it. It's an eye-opening, life-changing story, and I wish I'd let myself discover it sooner. I had no idea going into it that it was a "Christian novel," but it is anything but preachy. This book will force you to look at yourself and your motivations just as its heroine does, and you may find that you don't know yourself at all. I will probably read this again soon because I know I missed so much more worth pondering. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jean | 1/9/2014

    " One of my favorites. I have a hardback edition and the front is torn off. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelsi | 1/3/2014

    " My Mother loved this book and I loved the show when I was young. I had tried reading it was young but found it hard to get involved. This time around I found the charactors hard to connect to and hardly developed. All of the relationships in the book are undeveloped and rely on religion to make a difference. Besides the charactors and relationships i found this book sweet and innocent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 12/28/2013

    " I could read this book over and over again, and I have. I'm not quite sure why I love it so much but i do. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debbie | 12/21/2013

    " I have already read this book twice. I will read it again. It is a wonderful, truthful story of the people in the area I now call home. "

    " A bit slow at times, but it was worth reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Anita | 11/21/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steven | 7/30/2013

    " Required reading as part of my eight-grade english class. Story of a young woman who teaches in Appalachia in the ealry part of the 20th-Century. Much of my coolness of this book stems from the fact that it was taught by a teacher who never made reading or learning exciting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rhonda | 7/20/2013

    " One of my all time favs! Must re-read this soon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 B. | 1/13/2013

    " This was a read from highschool...so take this with a grain of salt. Loved it and her devotion to the people amd the area. Perhaps I'll read it again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Felicia | 10/9/2012

    " Excellent! I really loved the TV show and was dying to know how it ended. The book, while discussing issues of Christianity, doesn't require the reader to believe anything specifically. I found it to be an enjoyable read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 8/30/2012

    " Read this book years ago and loved it! Need to add it to my "to read" list. It is worth reading again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allison | 8/20/2012

    " This was a good read, I really liked it. Way better than the TV series:) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bairbre | 7/19/2012

    " I first read this book when I was 15, loved it then. Read it again when I was in my 20's, loved it then too. I read it again last year and have decided that it is a book that you can read throughout a life time and still enjoy the message. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie | 7/17/2012

    " I loved this book when I read it years ago. I got very caught up in the challenges Christy faced as a teacher in a poor mountain community. There's also a healthy does of old fashioned romance, which is always a good thing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chelsi | 3/22/2012

    " Good book. I felt it was a little choppy as it went from one scene to the next. Over 160 pages the book went from January to July. It was somehow still a good read--definitely for children--though it went from one plot point to the next really quickly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Breeanne | 3/1/2012

    " Nice Christian Book. I love that it's very clean. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachael | 6/18/2011

    " this story is about a young woman who leaves her family to teach children. She learns about the mountain people's history and superstitious natures. Along the way, she learns about herself. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Candace | 6/14/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 5/19/2011

    " If I had a top ten list, this one would be in my top five. Beautifully and truthfully written. Catherine Marshall takes the testimony of her mother and artfully conveys the honesty of hardships, personal struggles, and Godly truth. Some content might not be appropriate for younger ages. "

    " This was my first "big girl" book that I read at 12 or 13, and I think it actually changed the direction of my life. I re-read a couple of years ago and it wasn't quite as powerful to an adult, but I still give it 5 stars for a wonderful memory. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/3/2011
