This has been in my TBR pile for too long - and I don't know why it took me so long to get to it but I adored it. A really wonderful middle grade read.

love the characterization in this book - laughed out loud several times. Yes, there's a lot of wheat harvesting details - but there's a lot of really amazing writing, too.

“But some people are broken. They don't know anything other than hatred... It's like their heart gets going in the wrong direction early on in life, and they can never quite manage to bring it back around to love. It's a sad thing and we should have compassion for them. Think of the joy they are missing in life.”
Tess Hilmo, With a Name like Love

“Ollie though how her daddy once said sometimes people do things out of ignorance more than meanness. That's what Ollie took this woman to be - ignorant of God's love more than mean-spirited towards others.”
Tess Hilmo, With a Name like Love

“Even a broken life is better than no life at all.”
Tess Hilmo, With a Name like Love

“As the light changed from red to green to yellow and back to red again, I sat there thinking about life. Was it nothing more than a bunch of honking and yelling? Sometimes it seemed that way.”
