All For A Sister By Allison Pittman GIVEAWAY!

In Hollywood during the Roaring Twenties, Celeste DuFrane has it all. Her father’s work with color movie film opens doors that lead to the stardom she’s always aspired to. But after losing her mother, she discovers that half the estate has been left to a woman accused of killing Celeste’s baby sister before Celeste was even born.
Dana Lundgren arrives on the steps of the DuFrane mansion having spent most of her life imprisoned for a crime that never happened. After accusing her of murder so many years ago, why did Marguerite DuFrane leave her a sizeable inheritance?
As Celeste and Dana learn each other’s stories, they come up with more questions than answers. Then a surprising discovery begins to fill in the missing pieces: Marguerite DuFrane’s written confession, penned shortly before her death. Uncovering the treachery and deceit that changed the course of countless lives—most of all, their own—the two women find more than they ever dreamed of.

As far as I know, I have always been a writer. Before I could put words to page, I would dictate stories to my mother. I have always lulled myself to sleep by crafting stories--a new chapter each night. When God called me to write, I was thrilled to answer His prompting. And so it was, after a long conversation with my husband, I left a 20-year teaching career to pursue a new direction. It called for a HUGE step of faith, but God has kept me and our family safe.

I count every single one of my readers as one of God's blessings in my life, and I like to think of my stories as being the first step in a conversation. Please visit my website, and send me an email. It is one of my greatest joys to hear from you!
This is just not my type of book that I normally read. I have a hard time with the times shifts back and forth so my review will be on the storyline its self.
I did enjoy the story and the plot. Allison is a very talented author.
I love the story of the two woman and how their lives were changed forever more.
I gave this book 4 stars and if you love historical books I think that you will enjoy this one.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.

  7. I don't typically have a problem with books switching time periods, but with this one I was thoroughly confused. Although I did enjoy the story, it took me quite a bit longer to get through it than usual for me.
