Catherine Marshall’s ‘Christy’ Giveaway, Blog Tour, and Facebook Live Party

 About the book:

 The train taking nineteen-year-old teacher Christy Huddleston from her home in Asheville, North Carolina, might as well be transporting her to another world. The Smoky Mountain community of Cutter Gap feels suspended in time, trapped by poverty, superstitions, and century-old traditions.
But as Christy struggles to find acceptance in her new home, some see her — and her one-room school — as a threat to their way of life. Her faith is challenged and her heart is torn between two strong men with conflicting views about how to care for the families of the Cove.
Yearning to make a difference, will Christy’s determination and devotion be enough?






About Catherine Marshall:

Catherine Marshall (1914-1983), The New York Times best-selling author of 30 books, is best known for her novel Christy. Based on the life of her mother, Christy captured the hearts of millions and became a popular CBS television series. Around the kitchen table at Evergreen Farm, as her mother reminisced, Catherine probed for details and insights into the rugged lives of these Appalachian highlanders. Catherine shared the story of her husband, Dr. Peter Marshall, Chaplain of the United States Senate, in A Man Called Peter. A decade after Dr. Marshall's untimely death, Catherine married Leonard LeSourd, Executive Editor of Guideposts, forging a dynamic writer-editor partnership. A beloved inspirational writer and speaker, Catherine's enduring career spanned four decades and reached over 30 million readers.

My Thoughts:

When I read Christy back in the 90's this was the cover.
I was so incredibly taken in by the story then and now. I felt like I was in the Appalachian mountains experiencing everything young Christy was. Reading it again twenty years later I was transported back to the simpler times, with a young girl and her desire to be a teacher.
Ms. Marshall pours her heart and soul onto the pages of this book and it surrounds you like a warm fire on a cold night. This is one of those books I recommend when readers of non-fiction say that nothing is real in fiction. This book definitely puts that thought to shame.
I am beyond thrilled that I have the 50th anniversary copy of this novel to not only cherish myself but to pass it on to my grandchildren.
This book is for both male and female, young and old. You can never go wrong with this timeless classic.
