What the book is about:

Christy Huddleston left home at 19 to teach school in the Smokey Mountains. There she came to know and love the wild mountain people with their fierce pride, their dark superstitions, their terrible poverty, their yearning for beauty and truth. Christy found her faith severely challenged in these primitive surroundings; and, confronted with two young men of unique strength and needs, she found her own growing yearnings challenged by love.

. . . . .

Why I like it:

Well, if you’ve been around these parts before, you know this is my all-time favorite book. But when you are stocking your own shelf, or the shelf of your favorite teen gal, this classic is a must-have. The story will touch your heart and be a total joy to come back to again and again. Sigh…. just talking about it makes me happy.

    have you read the O’Malleys series by Dee Henderson? they’re contemporary fiction set in Chicago, and i think they do an excellent job of portraying relationships and romance realistically.

    the first book in the series is called The Negotiator and focuses on Kate, the matriarch of the O’Malleys, a group of adults who met in a group foster home and decided to adopt each other and become a family.

    each is in a branch of public service: Kate is a hostage negotiator; Marcus is with the US Marshals; Lisa is a forensic pathologist; Jack is a firefighter; Rachel is a trauma therapist; Stephen is a paramedic; and Jennifer is a pediatrician.

    once you start reading them, you’ll be hooked, so don’t say i didn’t warn you!
