Christy is the true story of a young woman who leaves her family to go and teach in rural Cutters Gap, Tennessee.  The story recounts the struggles and changes she goes through in teaching such impoverished children.  The novel discusses Christian beliefs such as the afterlife and it delves into the romantic life of Christy Huddleston as she decides between two men, one a doctor and one a minister, who are pursuing her.  More details about the story can be found at the link below.
