This series is an adaptation of the book, "Christy". It is a nice, pleasant story, which, I believe would be a YA book. However, it is only 2 hours ..Show More »in length - just telling the beginning of Christy's journey to Cutter Gap. Just to whet your appetite to read more of the series. Therefore, my question is, "why not just purchase the book 'Christy' and be done with it??" Be advised that Catherine Marshall was a Christian. All of her writings have a Christian theme with references to God and faith.
