My Personal Review:
Christy has been a best seller for 50 years and I can’t believe that I hadn’t read it until now! I do remember watching the series on television years and years ago and loving it, but the book is even better than I remember the show being. The author wrote the story based on the real-life experiences of her mother as she set out on her own. The author does a fabulous job of setting the scene and developing all the characters throughout the whole book. I felt like I was right there in Cutter Gap with Christy. I was really impressed with writing talent of Catherine Marshall and I am so glad I had the opportunity to read Christy. The story really draws you into the lives of the main character and all the mountain folks she comes to know in Cutter Gap. I loved how the story was full of faith, and strength on Christy’s part, and new friendships. If you or your young teens haven’t had a chance to ready Christy yet and you enjoy historical fiction with a little romance and a great storyline then I highly suggest you read Christy soon!
