Recommended for: mountain lovers, people with good noses, locals, Christians

Christy is a sort of classic for our family. (the first book I ever wept over the romance in!) It's a true story set just over the mountain, in Tennessee, about a 19-year-old girl from Asheville who volunteers to teach at a mission and learns what it truly means to 'love your neighbor as yourself'.

Can be a tough book to read, dealing with disease, sex, rape, alcohol, Still PG-13. (Seriously. I first read this when I was...12? Completely forgot about most it and was more shocked this time around than I was then.)
