Book Review: All for a Sister

All for a Sister
by
Allison Pittman

This book set in the 1920’s tells the story of aspiring actress Celeste DuFrane. After her mother passes away, Celeste discovers that half of the family estate has been left to Dana Lundgren, a woman accused of killing Celeste’s infant sister before Celeste was born.

After spending most of her life in prison for the murder of Celeste’s sister, Dana is shocked to learn that she has been left half of the estate. She wonders why a woman who accused her of murder would do such a thing.

As the two women learn more about each other and read Celeste’s written mother’s confession, they realize that they have more in common than they ever thought possible.

It took me a while to really get into this book, it seemed to start out a bit slow for my taste.  Of course that could be because I was reading 3 other books at the same time.  However, once I delved into the story a bit further it drew me in. Once I got sucked into the story of Celeste and Dana, I couldn’t read it fast enough. The author stayed true to the time period, really making the reader feel like they could just immerse themselves into the story’s settings. I really enjoyed the way she told the character’s stories and the way she intertwined their lives so carefully and creatively.
