Christy forever
3 July 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Christy was a wonderful, suitable entertainment that everyone could enjoy, and if you crave drama and romance...you would not be disappointed in Christy. The struggles Christy endures to love and understand her schoolchildren and make a life for herself in the backwoods mission and not as a sheltered city girl are amazing. Christy also has two men deeply in love with her, and she with them for different reasons. In one corner is the earnest young minister David, and the stubborn, brooding, but lovable Dr. MacNeill. I hope that a miniseries will air to conclude the story on-screen. But if that never comes to pass, choose an ending for yourself and be happy!
