Jairus's Girl Paperback – December 18, 2015
"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 (issue 66, page 45) new-wine.org/resource/1799
"Innovative approach to a well known historical era, told in a light-hearted way and in a voice ideal for the pre-teen reader... an entertaining story, fun and informative... a really enjoyable read, even for an adult" Readers' Favorite readersfavorite.com/book-review/jairuss-girl
"Adding a mixture of humour and drama, Hay provides a child's-eye-view of the events of the New Testament... An enjoyable and uplifting story... Introduces youngsters to the Bible not as a dull, dry, historical text, but as stories of real people, just like us" Mr B Reads (book blog) mrbreads.wordpress.com/2017/09/11/52books2017-august/
About the Author
Lynn Robertson Hay's writing covers a number of episodes for BBC TV, film, radio and theatre - winning an award from the Writers' Guild of Great Britain. As an actor she's played parts ranging from Lady Macbeth to Mole, and was recently seen wielding a rolling pin as Andy Capp's wife Flo. She has now just made her West End debut in an amazing role, understudying the mighty Stockard Channing and going on a number of times! Her one-woman show has played a variety of venues, including the only part of Glastonbury Abbey still standing (not her fault). Lynn's claim to fame is that she once won an episode of quiz show Fifteen to One.
