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.

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.
