Book Highlight – Shirley Bahlmann

Shirley Bahlmann, a local author who lives in Manti has written a delightful series of “ODD” books. These are historical non-fiction short stories about pioneers and settlers in the early 1900’s – many right here in our own Sanpete Valley!

EVEN LOVE IS ODD is the first one I read and I loved the true romantic love stories – whether they turned out well or not! The one I am currently reading is called, ISN’T THAT ODD – a book about miracles. These books are fun and easy to read. They are uplifting and inspiring. Shirley Bahlmann does a wonderful job of taking real events and enveloping them in a creative narrative that is sure to delight readers of all ages!!

Many books in the series are available at the Mt. Pleasant Public Library, and the rest can be borrowed from Ephraim’s Library.
