"I'm Olivene Love, oldest daughter of the Reverend Everlasting Love." With those often repeated words, Ollie introduces herself to the people in the pitiful town of Binder. It's July, 1957 and it's hot, hot, hot. Ollie, her parents and four younger sisters are setting up for another three-day revival. On that first day Ollie meets Jimmy Koppel whose mother is accused of murdering his no-good father. Ollie wants to help Jimmy prove his mother's innocence but the townsfolk have already made their decision. Ollie doesn't know if she can convince her father to break their three-day rule and stay in Binder until she and Jimmy can prove that his mother is innocent. Reviewed by BPL volunteer LS.

Awwww, I liked this book. It was extremely sweet. And since it was sort of a mystery, I ate it up. When I began reading it, I thought I knew who killed Jimmy's dad, but boy was I wrong! Very surprising end. I was very happy with this book. I can't wait to see more from this author.
