With a Name like Love
Title: With a Name like Love
Author: Tess Hilmo
With a Name Like Love, a J book written by first-time novelist, Tess Hilmo, will remind you of Moon Over Manifest. The story is told by Olivene (Ollie, for short) Love, the oldest daughter of the Reverend Everlasting Love. Ollie, along with her mom and dad and 4 sisters, are part of a 3-day revival in Binder, Arkansas. Ollie befriends a young boy, whose mother has been imprisoned for killing her husband. Ollie feels the mother is innocent and goes to work to try to prove this! I look forward to reading more books by Tess Hilmo!

When Ollie’s daddy, the Reverend Everlasting Love, pulls their travel trailer into Binder to lead a three-day revival, Ollie knows that this town will be like all the others they visit— it is exactly the kind of nothing Ollie has come to expect. But on their first day in town, Ollie meets Jimmy Koppel, whose mother is in jail for murdering his father. Jimmy insists that his mother is innocent, and Ollie believes him. Still, even if Ollie convinces her daddy to stay in town, how can two kids free a grown woman who has signed a confession? Ollie’s longing for a friend and her daddy’s penchant for searching out lost souls prove to be a formidable force in this tiny town where everyone seems bent on judging and jailing without a trial.
