With a Name Like Love

With a Name like LoveWith a Name like Love by Tess Hilmo

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Olivene Love is thirteen and the oldest of a traveling preacher's 5 daughters. She longs to put down roots and stay in one place for more than 3 days. The opportunity comes when they stop in Binder, Arkansas, and Ollie finds a boy around her age that needs help. Jimmy's mom is in jail for the murder of his dad-a murder she did not commit. Ollie is set on saving her new friend from being sent to live with an aunt he's never met.

This youth fiction is a touching story about love and kindness.
