Title: Silent Superstitions (Christy of Cutter Gap #2)

Author: C. Archer (adapting story from Catherine Marshall’s novel Christy)

Publisher: Evergreen Farm (Gilead Publishing)

Publication Date: 2018

Format: Paperback

Length: 107 pages


Christy Huddleston’s work as Cutter Gap’s schoolteacher has its challenges. Before she fully has a chance to face most of them, odd coincidences convince a local woman that Christy is cursed. To overcome local superstitions, she’ll have to face her own prejudices as well.

Like most Christian fiction novels, the way characters transition from experiencing things to considering the theology behind what they should do can feel heavy-handed at times. However, Archer makes up for this imbalance with especially engaging characters and a gripping conflict. This book is well worth reading if you like short Christian historical fiction.
