Description
Originally shown on TV, this miniseries details Christy's crisis of faith in the wake of a typhoid epidemic, her emotional catharsis, the life-altering events that cause her to make a choice between the two men in her life and her marriage. Both the storm of the century and epidemic become obstacles and motivators in affairs of the heart as Christy comes of age, catapulted into adulthood through the wisdom of her trials. The miniseries closes one chapter of the beloved heroine's journey and forever opens another, when as an enchanting bride, Christy starts life anew. The first night of the miniseries Christy: A Change of Seasons centers on the deadly typhoid epidemic, the most pivotal point in the novel's adaptation. The disease preys upon the mountain folk in isolated Cutter Gap causing enormous terror, suffering and leaving tragedy in its wake. For many generations superstition has led the isolated mountain folk to believe that all real danger comes from outside the cove. MacNeill exhausts himself caring for them, trying to get them to see that their own water and lack of sanitation is making them sick. The tragic death of her cherished friend, Fairlight Spencer (INGRID TORRENCE) affects Christy in cathartic and intimate ways, sending her into an emotional tailspin, catapulting her into a primal crisis of faith questioning the fairness and even the existence of God. She leans on Grantland's faith and accepts his proposal.
