Publisher: Evergreen Farm, 50th Anniversary Edition
Pub Date: October 17, 2017
From the publisher...
This is easily, hands down, one of my all-time favorite books! It's actually one of the two that I like to re-read every few years.
"Christy" is a story of real life in a land that is hard. The terrain is rough, unfinished and unpolished. The characters are rougher, unrefined and uneducated. But from the very beginning, Marshall writes in a way that draws the reader in, inviting them to stay and share a story or two.
The imagery from the authors writing brings vivid scenes to mind, it's as if the characters are neighbors I've grown up with, right there in Cutter Gap. The shacks and the mission, the school house and the church, they are all right there in my back yard just begging for a visit.
The publisher even offers a downloadable map of Cutter Gap and a trailer to view on their website. How fun!
**I give this book 5 stars and definitely recommend purchasing this special 50th anniversary edition**
