Christy by Catherine Marshall
Narrated by Kellie Martin
length 19 hours
In the year 1912, 19-year-old Christy Huddleston leaves home to teach
My Take: I had read this book many years ago and I really liked the tv series based on the book. I was excited when I saw that the book was narrated by Kellie Martin as she played the main character in the tv show. I have always liked Kellie Martin ever since she was in the tv show Life Goes On. I am sorry to say that the narration of this book fell a bit flat for me. I thought that Miss Martin could have put a little more emotion into the reading of the book but instead just read it straight .
The book itself is a great story. Naive Christy Huddleston leaves her sheltered life in Ashville, Tn to teach school to mountain children in the Smoky Mountains. She learns many harsh life lessons along the way but grows to love the people that she has come to teach. There is a bit of romance in the book and the tv series leaves you hanging so I would highly recommend reading or listening to the book. Good Wholesome entertainment. I highly recommend. it.
I want to listen to Catherine's other book Julie sometime.
