The book Christy is written by the daughter of the fictional character Christy. The story is awesome. It pulls you in and you quickly become attached to the complex characters. After reading 500 pages, you want some good closure. Some resolve. What happens to the wonderful characters who you've come to like and love? More importantly, which one does Christy marry? David or Neil? Well, don't read this book and expect to find out any of those things. The ending is far to abrupt, and there is no clue as to who she marries.
The TV series also leaves this last question unresolved; one of the main reasons that I read this book, hoping to find out. No such luck. So, I resorted to searching the internet and ran across this website appalachianhistory.net where I found an article about the REAL Christy Huddleston. Her real name was Leonora Whitaker and the story in the Christy book was much embellished. I suggest that you go to the website and read the true article for yourself. By the way, there was no Dr. McNeil at all, and David's true life character (which Christy/Leonora did marry) was John Ambrose Wood.
Read Christy and think fiction and you will love it. But don't expect a great ending. :(
