    1 thought on “The Bridge to Cutter Gap

    1. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. These books are such simple yet fun reads. They don't take any brain power at all to read, yet they're so great and they literally make you laugh out loud. I highly recommend this series of you want a short, light hearted read.

    2. "The Bridge to Cutter Gap" is the first of twelve books in the Christy series. These books are based on Catherine Marshall's original book "Christy".This book is about Christy Huddleston, a nineteen year old girl, who goes to be a school teacher in the small, mountain town of Cutter Gap, Tennessee.Follow Christy through this fun series as she faces adventure, danger, excitement, and a little romance. :)

    3. There is something so beautiful about this story and the way it was written. Christy leaves her nice home in the city in 1912 to teach in a backwoods school in the Great Smoky mountains of Tennessee. The story is beautiful and so is Catherine's writing. She based the story on her mother's adventures teaching in a backwoods school in the early 1900's. Must read!

    4. The last time I read this book, I was in high school. It means so much more to me now, since I have grown in my relationship with the Lord. Just an absolutely wonderful book about the love of God and loving people.

    5. The reason for the 3 star. The middle of the book was REALLY hard to get through. It just seemed to drag on and on and I was wondering if it was ever going to end. I would skim till I got to conversation again…never a good sign. Otherwise the story was good and the spiritual journey of Christy was wonderful. Plenty of heartache but lots of love and joy too. I just knew who the suitors were going to be and I knew whi she would end up with. The ending though VERY abrupt got me all misty eyed. It [...]

    6. I have read this book about once a year for the last five years, and there's something about it that just draws me in each time. Maybe it's the teaching missionary part that I so easily identify with, I don't know. This book caputres all the excitement of leaving home for the first time and really starting out in the world on one's own. I love the way that Christy blunders through experiences as she discovers her individuality and what truly makes her special. In many ways, I think Christy is my [...]

    7. How can anybody not like Christy? Especially when the movie is so great as well? How heroically unselfish she is (in the beginning when she thinks it will be easy) to teach school in the backwoods of Tennessee. Yeah right. It sound "fun" but I'm not that nice; which is too bad, because she really did make a difference in the lives of the children, as well as the community. But can't I do that were I live, instead of traveling to some outlandish isolated hick town? (Oh wait, that's VICTORVILLE)Ha [...]

    8. A true-to-the-original adaptation of the story of a city teacher who agrees to work in a one-room schoolhouse in the backwoods of Tennessee. The language has been brought down to be appropriate for a younger audience while maintaining the interesting story. A good introduction to historical fiction for non-fans with its simple vocabulary, large print, and captivating storyline.

    9. I love this book. Twenty years ago, it was one of the stories that inspired me to be a missionary. Between that first reading and this one, I'd forgotten most of the details of Christy's life in Cutter Gap, so this time through, I had all the fun of discovering a new book while still feeling like I was revisiting an old friend.

    10. I don't know how this differs from the original Christy, other than it may be broken up into a series? What do you think, Natalie? (I thought I was getting the original when I downloaded it to the kindle.) Anyway, I really really liked this first one. Couldn't put it down! I'll have to continue reading the rest. Thanks for the suggestion, Nat!

    11. A true-to-the-original adaptation of the story of a city teacher who agrees to work in a one-room schoolhouse in the backwoods of Tennessee. The language has been brought down to be appropriate for a younger audience while maintaining the interesting story. A good introduction to historical fiction for non-fans with its simple vocabulary, large print, and captivating storyline.

    12. I loved this TV show so Mom suggested I read the novel. I loved it even more. Christy's adventures as a teacher and the lifestyle of the Appalachians were engaging. I was sad when the show was canceled.

    13. This is about Christy adventuring off to a Cutter Gap where it's a dangerous Town, but she tries to understand the people and the town. The town with hardship and little resources and living day by day to survivor.

    14. This is a fun read. Christy, who grew up near the city agrees to teach at a school located in the smokey mountains. She is determined to stay as the local teacher and make a difference. The story continues with this theme and includes a little romance too.

    15. This is a very inspirational book. It is uplifting and encourages me to be more selfless. I gave it 4 stars because I did find myself wading through at times when the story was dragging. Overall it is a great book.

    16. I did really like this but when I downloaded the audio book from my library I thought it was the full book. I didn't realize it was an adaptation of the actual story so I plan to read the full book now.

    17. When Christy goes to mountain backwoods to teach at the mission school, she learns that sometimes the teacher learns more than the students. A very favorite YA book, and I loved the miniseries.

    18. I didn't realize this was a series. I think I've only read the first, but it was a nice little book about overcoming challenges. I'm all about easy reading. :)

    19. I never could figure out WHY she had any doubts about David after he carried her out of the water after she fell off the bridge!
