Review: All for a Song
Author: Allison Pittman
Category: Fiction, Christian, Historical
Dorothy Lynn Dunbar has everything she ever wanted: her family, her church, her community, and plans to marry the young pastor who took over her late father’s pulpit. Time spent in the woods, lifting her heart and voice in worship accompanied by her brother’s old guitar, makes her life complete . . . and yet she longs for something more.
Spending a few days in St. Louis with her sister’s family, Dorothy Lynn discovers a whole new way of life—movies, music, dancing; daring fashions and fancy cars. And a dynamic charismatic evangelist . . . who just happens to be a woman. When Dorothy Lynn is offered a chance to join Aimee Semple McPherson’s crusade team, she finds herself confronted with temptations she never dreamed of. Can Dorothy Lynn embrace all the Roaring Twenties has to offer without losing herself in the process?
An interesting read about the years after the Great War. I couldn’t put it down after starting to read, so I finished after only a few hours of reading.
When Dorothy Lynn accepts a marriage proposal from the young pastor who leads their church, she has no idea of what lays ahead of her. So when her sister offers to make her dress, Dorothy agrees and goes to St. Louis for a week.
There she meets a woman, Sister Aimee, when walking into a theater turned into a preaching hall. She’s shocked that a woman would go around the country preaching. When one of Sister Aimee’s helpers sees Dorothy at a restaurant the next day, he invites her to eat at his table.
A story of how our life can change in a blink of an eye. A story of hope, trust, love, and forgiveness. I hope you enjoy reading this book if you decide to read it.
