The following is from the official DVD synopsis:

“Set against the sweepingly romantic and breathtakingly picturesque backdrop of the American frontier, ‘Christy – The Complete Series’ is a compelling story based on the bestselling novel from Catherine Marshall. Arriving for the first time ever as a four-disc DVD collection on March 20 from Fox Home Entertainment, ‘Christy – The Complete Series’ features an all-star cast, including Kellie Martin (‘E.R.,’ ‘Life Goes On’), as well as Emmy┬«-winning and Golden Globe┬«-nominated Tyne Daly (‘Judging Amy,’ ‘Cagney & Lacey’). Set in 1912, the series follows an idealistic, sheltered 19-year-old (Martin) who leaves her privileged life in the city to teach school in an impoverished community in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee. Facing trials, tribulations, love and loss, Christy’s experiences among the proud people of the unrefined back country force her to grow up quickly and to learn the value of strength, determination and faith. A collection the entire family will love, ‘Christy – The Complete Series’ is presented on four double- sided discs and features all 19 episodes.

Nineteen-year-old Christy Huddleston (Martin) has lived a life of luxury in her cosmopolitan, turn-of- the-century hometown. Determined to reach beyond her sheltered world to help others, however, the headstrong schoolteacher heads for the impoverished Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee to teach in a remote schoolhouse. As she grapples with the ignorance and poverty of her new home, she strives to make a difference in the lives of the children she teaches. And when she finds herself emotionally torn between two men, Christy looks to her faith to guide her in this compelling and thoroughly moving love story.”
