The book was warm and wonderful and those like myself who loved it had doubts that the essence of it could truly be captured for television. It was a pleasant surprise when those doubts were proven to have no validity. It was faithful in conveying both the feelings and the atmosphere of the book and, for many, including myself, Kellie Martin will always be Christy Huddelston. Her wide-eyed and hopeful performance was perfect, and Tyne Daly added emotional depth as Miss Alice, the Quaker woman who had seen heartache before yet found the strength to carry on.
The wonderful Tess Harper portrayed the sensible and delicate Fairlight Spencer, who offered Christy the most cherished gift of those great mountains; her friendship. There was a wholesome and romantic glow to this series as the hardships these people experienced in their lives every day and the sometimes illegal means they used to survive came into conflict with the teachings of the young Minister, David (Randall Batinkoff), who is smitten with Christy.
But the older doctor who understood the people of Cutter Gap better may be the one Christy would find love with if she could hold on to the joy that brought her there. Stewart Finlay-McLennan had a nice turn as Doc Neil, who had some feelings of his own for young Christy. But it was the children and their teacher who took center stage as Christy faced opposition which kept some of the children away.Read more ›
If the producers had concerns about the public's reception, they need not have worried. The show was an instant success with the public, but unfortunately suffered in the ratings (due to poor time scheduling according to some sources) and only lasted two seasons. What success the show did have can greatly be attributed to its star, Kellie Martin, known for her work in Life Goes On, ER and now the Hallmark Channel's popular Mystery Woman. Martin, eighteen at the time, skillfully pulled off Christy's innocence and spunk to such a degree that she BECAME Christy in many viewers' minds.

When Catherine Marshall penned the first line of Christy some forty years ago, she couldn't possibly have known that an estimated 30 million people would read it. Christy was in Marshall's words "a story I have always wanted to write." Based on the real-life experiences of her mother and nine years in the writing, the novel was originally published by McGraw Hill in 1967. With more than 10 million copies in print, Christy is considered a landmark title in Christian publishing, but especially in Christian fiction.Read more ›
The book, written in 1967, is beautifully captured in this series, which is rare. It was wonderfully filmed, remarkably acted, and does not compare to any other series I have ever seen.
WARNING, however. If you watch it, you will be hooked. Few stories compare in magnitude.
I recommend also buying the book. Also the series diverts in a few places, it still stays true to the novel.
