Julie is Catherine Marshall’s nineteenth and final book, and her second novel. This close relationship.

Julie is Catherine Marshall’s nineteenth and final book, and her second novel. It is a companion piece to Christy, her first novel, published in 1967. Both Christy and Julie give readers a fascinating look at unforgettable segments of American life and history. continued through Catherine’s nonfiction books: Beyond Our Selves, Adventures in Prayer, Something More, The Helper, Meeting God at Every Turn, and a book we bylined together, My Personal Prayer Diary. When Catherine spent forty-two days critically ill in the hospital during the summer of 1982, working on the manuscript of Julie was a form of therapy for me at this very difficult time.

Adventure, romance, triumph, and tragedy blend in the story of Julie Wallace and her family during a period of strife between steel mill owners and immigrant laborers during the final years of the Depression, in a flood-prone town in western Pennsylvania

As Julie becomes of age in 1930's Alderton, Pennsylvania, she discovers not only her writing talent but also her sleuting talent, while doing research for her senior project. She begins to uncover something mysterious about a dam just outside of town that some very powerful people would rather she leave in the dark. Julie is undaunted by the fact that she has so much trouble getting information about the dam and the environmental damage it could cause to the town, if it has not been properly maintained. She her father hope to use his newspaper, the Sentinel,Julie to expose Julie's findings. Julie will have to be very determined. She wants her own byline someday, she has to work with her father's crochety secretary, Ms. Cruley and she's falling for Rand Wilkinson, the Hunting and Fishing Club's assistant who may know something about the dam that she is investigating. She must go forward with her investigation if she is expose any wrongdoing. But she must also tread softly.

This book is not like Christy. It is not about a young girl who went into a backwood community to bring hope and a better life to them. I would like to have known that but I have to admit that I like Catherine Marshall's writing so much I probably would have purchased it anyway.

I would like to have known about the mystery and intrigue as you read toward the middle of the book. That definitely would have pushed me to make a purchase and maybe others too. The beginning of the book had me wondering if I did the right thing by buying it but it does get better so keep reading.

I suspect I own every book Catherine Marshall ever wrote. As a teenager (I am now in my 70s) I wept over the death of Peter Marshall. One of my favorite books is "Christy". While I do not like "Julie" as much as "Christy", it held my attention, at times it kept me on the edge of my seat.

Another great book from Catherine Marshall. She digressed from her usual inspirational themes to this fictional and interesting tale of a young girl transitioning into womanhood.

excellant book by Catherine Marshall . ....Not quite as good as Christy , it did, however leave me with a lot of information on the flood which really happened in Johnstown, Pa.

I loved this book when I read it years ago. I like the complex issues Mrs. Marshall addresses: prejudice & discrimination, psych oily atric illlness, the dangers of unrestrained greed, the necessity of friend and family during life's difficulties. The story is about a young woman coming off age on the task end of the depression. It addresses many issues that are common to most women of that age even in our modern world. Having it on CD is great for a busy lifestyle. This was a library "book" that had been taken out of circulation. That made it very affordable as well.
