Christy Huddleston left home at 19 to teach school in the Smokey Mountains. There she came to know and love the wild mountain people with their fierce pride, their dark superstitions, their terrible poverty, their yearning for beauty and truth. Christy found her faith severely challenged in these primitive surroundings; and, confronted with two young men of unique strength and needs, she found her own growing yearnings challenged by love.… (mehr)

This is such a delightful book. My mom, sister and I used to love watching historicals together when we were younger, and I remember watching this when it was made into a miniseries. The book is even better, giving a great glimpse of the poverty and lack of opportunity in Appalachia back in the early 1900's when young Christy Huddleston goes into the Smoky Mountains to become a schoolteacher. Such memorable characters and just a great all-around read. 4.5/5 stars. ( )

I've had this book on my kindle for quite awhile, not because I didn't want to read it, but because I wanted to hold it and savor it!

I read this when it was first released, and rereading this edition was a treat, yes, it comes back!

This is a love story, mainly for God, and then God's people, and you will soon be immersed in the lives of these mountain people, but we walk in young Christy's shoes and follow her heart as she embraces and loves these people!

Now I'll put this to the side, but leave it on my reader, one to look forward to reading again!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Gilead. and was not required to give a positive review. ( )

The pacing at the end was a little fast. Also, it could have used an epilogue. ( )

Video stories based on the book. 2-3 stores on each DVD.

I've read this book several times and it holds up every time. A girl takes a leap of faith having no idea what she is getting herself into, and finds God in the middle of everything. She leaves the city and a life of plenty to teach school in a rural mountain community. Many times she is tempted to quit; life is harder than she expected, but instead, she learns that love changes everything. And God changes everything.

I am always inspired after immersing myself in this almost true story. The thing is, this book is slow, episodic perhaps, and it takes the reader along on a journey. My wrestling with God is different than Christy's, and yet I feel as though we would have been good friends. And I am thankful for stories like these that remind me God is closer than we realize. ( )

I wish to thank my many friends in East Tennessee (then it names some of them and why)
Erste Worte
An jenem Novembernachmittag, als ich zum erstenmal Cutter Gap, Tennessee, erblickte, hob sich der bröcklige Schornstein von Alice Hendersons Hütte scharf gegen den Himmel ab, pechschwarz von den Flammen, die das Haus vernichtet hatten.
