All for a Song
The last one left at home with her mother, Dorothy Lynn Dunbar longs to see the world outside of her small Ozark town. Even though she has her music, her family, and a fiance, she can't help but think that she is missing out on life. When she travels to St. Louis, Dorothy Lynn is thrown into the path of charismatic evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson. Given the opportunity to travel as part of Aimee's team, Dorothy Lynn follows the dynamic speaker to California, where she discovers that all that glittered during the Roaring 20's is not gold.
While I think that Allison Pittman is a very talented author and I have loved some of her other stories, I feel like this one was missing a little something. It is an interesting story though, and I loved how the story goes between two different time period's of Dorothy Lynn's life. I had never heard a thing about Aimee Semple McPherson, so I found her story worth investigating more, as she was a woman ahead of her time.
If you are interested in the Roaring 20's, then this is just the book for you!
