Overall, I d say this was a reat read, although, it felt a bit dated at first, and I did feel that the author played up the mountain stereotype lazy, drunkeness, uneducated, dirty, and possible inbreeding, among other things , a bit too much For all this is a fictional account, based on her mother s own experience, who taught school in the mountains, I cannot help but feel she exaggerated some aspects and leaned into them a bit than was necessary Now all of that aside, I found myself captivated by Christy s story, her struggles, triumphs, and failures, as she struggled to find a place among these people And I liked how the Christian aspects were shown and handled, in a very real way, the struggles that the characters had regarding their faith or lack thereof , made them seem all the real Highly Recommend I first read this book as a teenager back in the early 70 s I ve read it at least a dozen times and it remains one of my favorite books of all time Riveting, fascinating and a study of how mountain folk lived before paved roads, electricity and even decent medicine I love this book passionately and will soon be rereading it once again.
