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.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Review by Sue Maxwell | 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 Review by 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. "
