    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.

    What did you love best about Christy?

    I have read this book about 4 times since I was a teenager. Now I'm in my fifties and I love it just as much as the first time I read it. Listening to the story is even better. You feel as if you are really there with Christy as she lived that time in her life. It is a very compassionate and loving story revealing the way of life in the appalachian mountains in the early 1900's. It is a very enjoyable and spiritual Christian story that takes you through many emotions as felt by Christy and the other individuals she meets in the story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Christy for her youthfulness, excitement, vision, eagerness, vitality, innocence, and bravery.


    Have you listened to any of Kellie Martin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Kellie Martin's narration of this book is terrific! I remember her when she played Christy on television and she played the role very believably. Her voice was very clear and it was very easy to follow the story and to distinguish the difference in each character. She was able to create the emotions felt by each character.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    When you read this book you experience various emotions, including: love, hate, disgust, admiration, compassion, etc. It is very difficult to put the book down and I was sad to have the story end. I wanted to go on and on finding out what else was happening to and around Christy.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this book to everyone! A one time read is not enough. It's an enjoyable story for teenagers through older adults.
