Christie Johnstone is an 1853 romantic drama novel by the British writer Charles Reade. It follows the adventures of the young and wealthy aristocrat Viscount Ipsden who falls for a woman named Christie Johnstone. It is set in Newhaven near Edinburgh and may have been based on the real life experiences of Reade.[1] It followed up his first major literary success Peg Woffington, released earlier the same year.


In 1921 the novel was turned into a silent film Christie Johnstone directed by Norman McDonald and starring Stewart Rome and Gertrude McCoy in the main roles.
