Product Description


Celebrate the 50th anniversary of this classic American novel

Since its first release in 1967, Christy has sold an astonishing 10 million copies. Now the beloved story is available in a special anniversary edition which includes an afterword reflecting on the success of the book and how many people Christy's story has reached, as well as added features like a character list and a town map to enhance the reading experience for fans old and new.

In the year 1912, nineteen-year-old Christy Huddleston leaves Asheville, North Carolina, to teach school in the Smoky Mountains--and comes to know and love the resilient people of the region, with their fierce pride, their dark superstitions, their terrible poverty, and their yearning for beauty and truth. But her faith will be severely challenged by trial and tragedy, and through two remarkable men--a preacher torn by doubt and a doctor whose wounded soul needs healing--she will grapple with the nature of love.

About the Author


Catherine Marshall

Catherine Marshall

Marshall was born in Johnson City, Tennessee She was the daughter of the Reverend John Ambrose Wood and Leonora Whitaker Wood.From the age of nine until her graduation from high school, Marshall was raised in Keyser, West Virginia, where her father served as pastor of a Presbyterian church from 1924 to 1942.

While a junior at Agnes Scott College, she met Peter Marshall, marrying him in 1936. The couple moved to Washington, DC, where her husband served as pastor of the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church and Chaplain of the United States Senate.

In 1940, Marshall contracted tuberculosis, for which at that time there was no antibiotic treatment. She spent nearly three years recovering from the illness. Her husband died in 1949 of a heart attack, leaving her to care for their 9-year-old son, Peter John Marshall. He later also became a minister and author.

Marshall wrote a biography of her husband, A Man Called Peter, published in 1951. It became a nationwide success and was adapted as a film of the same name, released in 1955. Her success encouraged her to keep writing.

Marshall wrote or edited more than 30 books, which have sold over 16 million copies. They include edited collections of Peter Marshall's sermons and prayers, and her own inspirational writings. Her most successful books were A Man Called Peter (1951); and her novel, Christy (1967), which was inspired by the story of her mother's time in the mountains teaching the impoverished children of Appalachia. Christy was adapted as a CBS television series, starring Kellie Martin, beginning in 1994.

In 1959, Marshall married Leonard LeSourd, who was the editor of Guideposts Magazine for 28 years. Together they founded a book imprint, Chosen Books. They had three children, Linda, Chester and Jeffery.

Marshall died on March 18, 1983 at the age of 68. She was buried alongside her first husband.
