In 1912, 19-year-old Christy Huddleston sets off from her comfortable home in Asheville to teach the poor children of the Smoky Mountains. Based on Catherine Marshall’s bestselling novel Christy, this is the third installment in the Christy of Cutter Gap series.

This time, Christy is dealing with troublemakers. Older boys in her classroom are restless and angry, resentful of the city-girl teacher. What might have been taken as ill-advised pranks soon escalate. Christy must face the possibility that they might even be out to hurt her. Will she be able to pin down the culprits before they do irreparable damage?

The book is short at about 100 pages, easy to read in a sitting or two, making it an excellent choice for those pressed for time who still want to enjoy a well-written story. The storytelling is simple, reminiscent of the time period in which the story is set, but pleasant to read.
