Publisher's Summary

In the year 1912, 19-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. And don't miss another heart-soaring best seller from Catherine Marshall: Julie.

"First released in 1967, Christy is based on the life of author Catherine Marshall's mother and was the inspiration for the recent television series of the same name.

Christy

This is a wonderful story - based on Catherine Marshall's mothers life - you feel you are there in those mountains living life alongside Christy. I read the book many years ago and this audio of the story was excellent. Highly recommend it.

Great Listen

If you loved the TV series, you'll love the novel. Although the ending is very disappointing, which is the only reason I didn't give this five stars, the audiobook begins with a interview with the author's son that explains how the story is based on the true story of his grandmother. He also explains that the ending of the novel is not exactly based on the true story, but was changed to surprise the reader on purpose. Knowing that made it better. If the author had stuck to the her mother's true story, it would have made for a happier ending. Other than that, the story of Christy and her Mountain People is charming and entertaining. That fact that Kelly Martain reads it, who played Christy on the hit TV show, only makes it that much better. She get's the accents of the characters down so well, you feel like you are taken to the Mountains of Tennessee. Kelly's voice telling this story, really pulls at your heartstrings. It was worth the download!
