Timeless Adventure

Christy pin1A classic, "Christy" by Catherine Marshall, is celebrating 50 years. Written as fiction but based on the life of Marhsall's mother, this is a gripping tale of a young woman who volunteers to teach school in the Great Smoky Mountain's of Tennessee in the community of Cutter Gap. Christy finds herself in an alien world from what she is used to in North Carolina. She falls in love with the children and eventually the people of Cutter Gap. Not only does Christy learn about the ways of the mountain people but she begins to learn more about herself and her relationship with God. The book is based on her first year of being in Cutter Gap. If you remember the television show or never read "Christy," I highly recommend that you put this on your reading list. It may be 50 years old, however, the truths uncovered and discovered remain timeless! I received a complimentary copy of this book from Litfuse Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.

  Some stories are evergreen, their themes and lessons standing the test of time and connecting with readers generation after generation. Reconnect with Catherine Marshall's beloved Christy as it celebrates its 50th anniversary with a new edition! As nineteen-year-old teacher Christy struggles to find acceptance in her new home of Cutter Gap, some see her-and her one-room school-as a threat to their way of life. Her faith is challenged and her heart is torn between two strong men with conflicting views about how to care for the families of the Cove. Yearning to make a difference, will Christy's determination and devotion be enough?
