With a Name Like Love

A 2013 Beehive Children’s Fiction Nominee | Debut novel from a Utah author!

Written by Tess Hilmo

Ollie is the 1st of 5 daughters of Everlasting Love, an itererant preacher. They have arrived in Binder, Arkansas for a 3-day revival. Ollie finds that all is not right in the town, it seems to be full of hate. She sets about to make a friend and change the course of events. Kids groaned when I said it, but it’s true – this book is just plain “sweet.” The characters are great, Ollie tears at your heart, and I just couldn’t put it down! I would highly recommend this book for next year’s Beehive Awards!

  1. Great to see a well-reviewed book by a Utah author! This would be a fun book to display in February with a “Love” display!
