Jairus’s Girl

Tammie’s life in a quiet fishing town would never be the same again.

Her future wasn’t looking good (understatement!), but things quickly went from bad to WICKED with the arrival of a strange grown-up with nice eyes.
And as for the business with Daniel’s lunch, or Dibs’s roof . . .

Jairus’s Girl is part of ‘The Young Testament’ – an entertaining and moving account of the Galilee side of Jesus’s story – aimed at preteens, though some adults have sneakily read and enjoyed it too.

Lynn has posted a number of readings on her YouTube channel. Here‘s the Sermon on the Mount, as it appears in Jairus’s Girl!

“AA Milne-esque in a wonderful way” Conrad Gempf, writer & lecturer in New Testament at London School of Theology

“Easily pickupable, unputdownable, sure to be enjoyed… The greatest story ever told just got a whole lot more accessible for today’s youngsters” Paul Kerensa, comedian & writer (MIRANDA; NOT GOING OUT; TOP GEAR)

“Funny, imaginative and moving… We loved it… The characters feel as if they’re there in front of you. Definitely a recommended read for 8-13 year olds.” New Wine Magazine, March 2017

“As a teacher, I find it very hard to find books relating to religion that are not stuffy and slow… However, this is a gem. The humour is wonderful, the story is uplifting, and there’s tons to talk about with the children” Wishing Shelf Awards judge, 2019, ‘Highly recommended’
