Just needed to "blog" about a book/movie I have been into lately. Its called "Christy" by Catherine Marshal. They played the movies on TV, it was made into a miniseries back in the mid 90's, and was recently re-aired on tv. I was so hooked to it, DVR'ed it and keep watching it. I am just taken w/ all the characters. I feel like I have a lot in common w/ her, with her mission and being a teacher I guess. I was so upset w/ how the last episode left you completely dangling! I thought there was more to the series, but found out it did, in fact end with the 19th episode. I couldn't believe it! She is torn btw. two loves, Preacher/ Doctor. I personally liked the dr. best. I checked it out and quickly flipped to the last page, apparently it doesn't really tell you about her future and how it all pans out. I was even more intrigued when I found that the book is based on the author's mother's mission to the Great Smokies of Tennessee. I read more about the real 'Christy', and how she went back to TN after 40 years and how things had changed. Has anyone read/ or seen the movies? What did you think??
