Christy (50th Anniversary Edition) (Evergreen Farm, October 2017)
New edition of Catherine Marshall’s inspirational classic!
The train taking nineteen-year-old teacher Christy Huddleston from her home in Asheville, North Carolina, might as well be transporting her to another world. The Smoky Mountain community of Cutter Gap feels suspended in time, trapped by poverty, superstitions, and century-old traditions.
But as Christy struggles to find acceptance in her new home, 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?

My Thoughts:
Fall in love with the heartfelt, transforming timeless journey of Christy. This 50th Anniversary Hardcover edition is beautiful and one not to miss. While this isn't a light hearted journey, it is worth the journey and the reader will fall in love with Christy's determination to handle all obstacles and circumstances that come her way. Christy is a story of romance, hardship, adventure and historical fiction, which I love!

I also love that this book is about a real person, but having never read the book before I was stunned by the events that happened in this book. Due to the types of scenes in this book, I would recommend that it be read by someone who is at least 16 or that some of these scenes be skipped, or read with younger girls with explanation due to the nature of the content. 

I believe that Christy's Christian faith and her childhood upbringing is what kept her standing during the test of various circumstances. I would highly recommend this book, especially this 50th Anniversary hardcover edition. It will remind you of a strong story and how to handle difficult circumstances with faith. It will ignite your faith to remain strong. I give this book 5/5 stars. A favorable review was not required.
