Julie explores the miracle of faith against a background of small-town America coming of age, with a story—and a heroine—unforgettably powerful and alive. Julie Wallace was only eighteen when her family moved to a flood-prone Pennsylvania town in 1934. Here her father, risking their life savings, took over a struggling newspaper, and Julie began fighting to fulfill her dreams. She found herself taking sides as battle lines were drawn between desperate steelworkers and the owners of the mills—and being torn as two young men divided her loyalty and her heart. Then a devastating catastrophe became the ultimate test of courage and commitment—and Julie’s special strength would come from love.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A novel with a fresh innocence,…a great vividness, and power.”

    Milwaukee Journey Sentinel

  • “Readers are still swept up in the events. Several issues are at stake, but the backdrop of the story—the safety of the earthen dam and thus the town—is what drives the plot and is skillfully written with proficient foreshadowing and heightened urgency. First published in 1984, Julie is still a worthwhile read for all ages.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 2/13/2014

    " If I could have given this a 3.5 - I would have. It was better than book 1 & 2 but to me - not worthy of a 4. On to book 4. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Adams | 2/7/2014

    " It's been years since I read this one, but I can't tell you how many boxes I've looked through trying to find my copy so I could read it again. I credit Julie Garwood for my own love of romance novels and for giving me the inspration to become an author as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Inten Tirkasari | 2/2/2014

    " I think this book is going to be more romantic than the previous one... I just love Nathan and Sara. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 KJ Luepke | 1/29/2014

    " The main character, Sara, is a ditz. I want to smack her. And the main male character, Nathan, is described as having long red hair that hangs down his back aka a mullet. *Shudder* I just couldn't get past it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Erin | 1/20/2014

    " Couldn't finish. Got about 3/4 of the way through and realized I was actually wincing as I turned each page. Utter shite. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pam | 1/19/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maya | 12/17/2013

    " I really like Sara. She is myopic, won't wear her glasses, and constantly in trouble because she acts before she thinks. Love the setting (1800 England and at sea), love the ship, love the hero. A gooey delight for when you want a period piece. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roginea | 12/10/2013

    " the book is okay so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christienne | 12/9/2013

    " Very good but not as good as she normally is. The female was a bit annoying at times and needy not very likable sometimes. He was wonderful and it was a nice love story. He was strong and lovable. It lacked a plot at times. His character as a pirate and lover carried the book and made it enjoyable. "

    " This my favorite book of all time. I can't count the number of times that I have read this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Aaishath | 11/12/2011

    " This is a novel I failed to enjoy reading. I disliked the forced humour throughout the book regarding the clumsiness of Sarah's character. I feel this book bears a resemblance to Lindsey Johanna's book, A Pirate's Love. "

    " My mom introduced me to this book when I was in junior high, and I remember reading it on a car ride from Pennsylvania to Maine. It’s a nice story about a family and coming of age, as well as politics and struggles in the time it was set. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deirdre | 1/3/2011

    " The cover alone takes me back. I remember not liking the male characters as much as the ones in Christy, but loving the newspaper/dam story line. Some day I'll have time to reread all these:) Maybe good gifts ideas for Meg. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jen | 8/15/2010

    " Great coming of age story. A little predictable, but a nice CLEAN interesting book. Slow, something to read when you have nothing better to read. :) "
