Book Review: Christy ~ Catharine Marshall



 Click HERE to purchase Christy...
 
On hearing a missionary speak about the great need in Appalachia, nineteen year old Christy Huddleston feels called to go to the heights of Cutter Gap to teach the children there.  She feels a strong urging to take a leap of faith and to make her life count for something...  She has no idea what to expect...

Christy travels from her comfortable home and her loving parents and brother to the Appalachian Mountains where life is completely different – the people are poor but very proud and set in their ways.  As Christy begins to teach school, she is faced with more challenges than just the lack of textbooks.

At times she feels despondent, convinced she is failing, but through the grace of God and much perseverance on her own part, Christy finds herself changed forever and led to an even fuller life than she could ever have imagined...

“An absolutely inspiring read – challenging and encouraging.  Beautifully written!”

Note:  I would only recommend reading this book to those over the age of 15/16.

Thank you Hair Stylist:-) I would put Christy down as a definite favourite. No, we haven't seen the film series yet, but part of the reason why my mom and I read the book was because we wanted to see the movie... We are currently studying Appalachia and had to read Christy as it is set there! Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a blessed day, Kelly-Anne x
