A Beautiful Book to Inspire Young Women (And Older Women Alike)

One of the best things about great literature is that can inspire readers to do big things. When we read and are swept up in the lives of characters who are courageous and strong and inspiring, we’re inspired to live our lives that way. I’m not talking about characters who are too sugary sweet to be believed. I’m talking about characters who face real struggles, real challenges, real temptations and rise above.

I can remember the first time that I read Catherine Marshall’s Christy as a young girl. I loved it. And the main character inspired me to want to do big things for God. I had the chance to reread and review Christy as part of it’s 50th anniversary. And I’m happy to post about another great book from Catherine Marshall- Julie.

Julie is set during the Great Depression in a small Pennsylvania town. The heroine- Julie- has always wanted to be a writer. Her father buys a newspaper in a flood-prone town, and Julie’s investigative reporting starts uncovering secrets that could affect her family and the whole town.

Like Christy, Julie is based on people and events in Catherine Marshall’s own family. And Julie is a strong heroine who can inspire readers to act courageously in hard circumstances and to trust God in a big way.

Catherine shared the story of her husband, Dr. Peter Marshall, Chaplain of the United States Senate, in “A Man Called Peter.” A decade after Dr. Marshall’s untimely death, Catherine married Leonard LeSourd, Executive Editor of “Guideposts,” forging a dynamic writer-editor partnership. A beloved inspirational writer and speaker, Catherine’s enduring career spanned four decades and reached over 30 million readers.
