This is an AWESOME story! First, it's based on a true life event. Secondly, the style and flow are so enjoyable to read. I have read this one many times (not this copy....just the book!) and always enjoy it. Find out about the "old time" missionaries in America. It's a love story...a story of hate...a story of diversity...a story of fables and colorful language....a story of great characters....a story of Queen Esther....bootleggers...beautiful children and details about clothes, food, nature, you won't forget this story and your heart and faith will be lifted up.

I read this book as a teen, a young adult and as an adult. Like all good stories, this one appeals to all ages. A young woman from a upper-class home, sets out to teach children in the Appalachia. She learns about these people, herself and God.

You will not regret the time to read this book, and will wish that there was more! I highly recommend this for any young women, 14 and up.

Very enjoyable! Christy is written in the tradition of the "Little House" books, but has some romance thrown in.

"One of the best-loved of all american novels." A story of a young teacher and what she encounters and learns in the Smoky Mountains. Very touching and moving.

One of my favorite books of all time. Long and VERY worth the read. I don't think the TV series did it justice at all.

I never read this book back in the years it was released but picked it up for a bookclub last year. It has become a favorite of mine. Full of good quotes that help bring perspective to life. The story is well written and depicts an era in American Appalachia that I knew nothing about. Highly recommend for teens and adults.

A book about dreams that come true with hard work, determination and compassion. I loved this book way back in the '60's, still love it.
