It is time for a FIRST Wild Card Tour book review! If you wish to join the FIRST blog alliance, just click the button. We are a group of reviewers who tour Christian books. A Wild Card post includes a brief bio of the author and a full chapter from each book toured. The reason it is called a FIRST Wild Card Tour is that you never know if the book will be fiction, non~fiction, for young, or for old...or for somewhere in between! Enjoy your free peek into the book!

You never know when I might play a wild card on you!


  1. Hi Camy,
    Thanks for mentioning my book 'Celtic Treasure'. It was such a joy to write and I'm praying that it blesses many in the US. I'm just about to put a 'Celtic Treasure' multi-media concert together with musicians and we'll be performing it 'live' in just a few weeks.

    I notice I am a 'Wild Card' author! Well, you've met me. I think I might be considered a little wild and I'm certainly known to be a 'card' (in the UK this means someone who is funny)!
    Much love

  2. Liz you were so fun to chat with at Mount Hermon last year! I'm thrilled to be posting about your book!

  3. Hi Camy ~ I'm trying to get the word out about an old Lenten tradition from Finland, it's especially good for observing Lent with children. I posted about it awhile back, the link is here, Lenten Grass.

    Please forgive my commenting 'off topic'. If you find this inappropriate, please just delete the comment, I looked for but didn't find an e-mail address.

    Many thanks, Alanna
