Catherine Marshall is a published American author of fiction and non fiction books.

Catherine was born on September 27, 1914, in Johnson City, Tennessee. Her father was a Reverend.

When she was nine years old, she grew up in Keyser, West Virginia, where she would live until finishing high school. Her father worked there as pastor to a Presbyterian church in the years 1924 to 1942.

Catherine would then go on to attend Agnes Scott College for higher studies. While there in her junior year, she met a man named Peter Marshall. In 1936, the pair got married. They then relocated to Washington, D.C. There her husband worked as a pastor to the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church as well as serving as the Chaplain for the United States Senate.

She would come down with tuberculosis in 1940. At the time, there was not the current treatment available with antibiotics that there is today. As a result, she spent a long time getting over her illness, a period of nearly three years. Unfortunately, disaster would strike again. Her husband suffered a heart attack in 1949 from which he ultimately passed. This left Catherine alone, having the responsibility of caring for their son Peter John Marshall, who was nine years old at the time. Her son would go on to become a writer as well as a minister.

Once her husband had passed away, Catherine took it upon herself to write a biography of him. The book came out in 1951 and is called A Man Called Peter. The book did well, selling multiple copies across the country and generally becoming a success. The book would be adapted into a feature film that held the same title, which came out in 1955.

The success of that biography served to fuel Marshall’s determination to continue writing. She has since written several more books and helped to edit them as well. Many of them are inspirational in nature. She would have some success with the devotional books but it was her books Christy and then another titled Julie that did very well.

Christy was based on the story told to her by her mother of her time working in the mountains, teaching the poor children that lived in Appalachia. The novel was adapted into a made for television movie by the name of Christy that came out in 1994. It was also turned into a television series in 1994 titled Christy that aired on CBS starring Kellie Martin. A 2000 movie called Christy: Return to Cutter Gap would also be released for television. In addition, a 2001 mini series aired called Christy: Choices of the Heart.

The author would get married again in 1959 to a man named Leonard LeSourd. He served as an editor for Guideposts Magazine for decades. The two decided to found their own book imprint called Chosen Books. They would also go on to have three children together.

The author passed away on March 18, 1983.

Christy is one of the first novels to come out from this author in the fiction genre. It was published in 1967.

This story features the main character of Christy Huddleston, a young woman. She’s a teacher and just nineteen years old. When she’s on a train bound away from the place she calls home (Asheville, North Carolina), it’s as though she’s not going to another place in the United States but to a different world entirely.

Once she arrives, she finds it’s true that there’s a difference between the place she knows and this new place. The Cutter Gap community is located in the Smoky Mountain area and has a unique feel to it. One that involves the feeling of time being put in suspense, with plenty of old traditions, superstitions to go around, and poverty that keeps many of them there.

Christy does her best to try and adapt to the new place that she is currently calling her home. She’s doing her best as a teacher in the school that only has one room. Still, she’s a newcomer to the area. Some of the people in town even see her as being a potential disruption to life as they are used to it being.

In the process, Christy will find her faith put to the test. Meanwhile, she’s also finding herself falling in the middle of a romance. She’s torn between two different men, both attractive and strong in their own way. They also have very different ideas for how the local families in the Cove should be cared for.

Christy’s doing her best to try and make a difference in this area. She’s determined as a teacher and individual to try and make this work and do some good. But will her devotion to her cause end up seeing her through? Or will she find out that determination sometimes just isn’t enough?
