    Story
    (199)

    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.

    Story
    What did you love best about Christy?

    I loved the adventure about it. Here was a young girl, stepping out in faith and ventruing into the rugged beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains to a backwoods, rural, and poor-seeming community to try to make a difference in their lives.. I loved the backward, but beautifully musical and poetic way the mountain people spoke. I loved having insight into the characters' struggles to be honest with themselves and to find their divine relationship to God when they were willing to listen and follow where they were led.


    What other book might you compare Christy to and why?

    Can't think of one at the moment!
    In a strange way, but its a completely different book,- maybe Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts. While Christy is innocent, and the character in Shantaram is far from innocent,- both of them are on journeys into places unfamiliar to them, embracing the people they meet there with love, and both trying to do something meaningful with their lives.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Starlight and the shadow was pretty unforgettable.
    Also loved Christy and the doctor dancing!


    If you could take any character from Christy out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Christy or Alice Henderson. Love to hear more of their stories.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved this book as much as the first time I read it,- almost 40 years ago!
