This is a heart-warming family series that must go to DVD!
Christy is based on the novel of the same name by Catherine Marshall, written in 1967. It is a book to remember. I read it as a teenager and I am reading it again, finding it impacting me in different ways than before. When MTM made this a major television event and it was aired on CBS in the mid 1990's I watched it with my then growing children and we never forgot it. This autumn, we dug out the old VHS copies we had taped from television and fell in love with the whole series again. I would recommend it for the DVD collection in my library and I would recommend it to any family looking for an inspiring, educational and motivational kind of movie that brings out the good and bad in people;encouraging young and old to be the best that they can be and give to all others as we walk this path of life. It is a wholesome, well-done, extremely historical story about life in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennesee in 1912 when many people were truly poor, absolutely primitive, without modern conveniences or technologies, but wise beyond our times today. I thoroughly loved this series. I strongly believe we need more of this kind of movie for our young people today.
