I'm giving this book 5 stars and then rambling because this book refuses to be put into a 5 point outline. Christy is a, in my opinion, one of a kind book. It's hard to describe, and harder to forget. This isn't the first time I've read this book, and Lord willing it won't be the last. I love this book. It's setting is incredible. The Blue Ridge/Smoky Mountains hold a piece of my heart captive, and going there is a real treat. Being transported there by a book, well that's just all the better! The characters are so real you bout spect them to just show up behind you. And of course, the mountain accent infects me and causes my slight twang to become full on Southern gal. It's a book that has me eating up the pages. I love the characters.... Miss Henderson, Fairlight Spencer, Ruby Mae, Opal, Tom McHone, Lundy Taylor.... David and Dr. McNeil. And of course, Christy Rudd Huddleston herself. It's a book to make you laugh, to make you cry, to stir your heart. I'd absolutely recommend this book. (There are a few parts that make it seem more appropriate for older teens and up, but I've loved this book for years. It depends on the reader.) If you can't tell, I can't say enough good things about this book. The style is the classic, older style that touches me and makes my heart sing, but it might not appeal to everybody. I'd have to say, just give it a try. I didn't regret it, and I don't think you will either.
