The novel "Christy" is the story of a young woman who leaves her home in the city to teach in a school in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Some objects that might symbolize her personality are:

  • a Bible; Christy was a dedicated Christian
  • a reading primer or reading book; she took her job as a teacher very seriously
  • a buckeye to represent the folk wisdom she comes to appreciate
  • an oak leaf or sprig of rhododendron to represent the beauty of the wilderness she came to love
  • heart-shaped box to represent her love for Dr. Neil MacNeill
