  21. One of my favorite genes is historical fiction and I find a type of kinship with the Blue Ridge area of the Appalachian mountains. Many branches of my family tree migrated from that area in the early 1800s to North Alabama where I call home. Growing up the book Christy was one of my favorites and recognised the similarities in the synopsis for this book. A new perspective on the Christy premise sounds interesting.

  22. I read a digital version of this book and it is SO wonderful! One of my favorite books ever! It made me want to reread Christy and the descriptions of the landscapes are just beautiful!
