    All for a Sister is the third book in a series but can be read as

    a stand alone. This is the my first Allison Pittman book. I had

    no problem identifying the characters.

    The time period is the 20s. The author did thorough research

    on the details, dress, hairdos, description of the hats, attitudes

    and social realities of the time. The law was not determined by

    justice alone but by the wealth of the accuser.

    The book totters between the past and present. The story

    weaves deception and treachery into the way of privileged

    living. This makes the mystery of the plot explainable as the

    reader continues to the end.

    In the beginning, it was hard to follow the tethering smoothly

    until you became accustomed to the writers style.

    A 12 year old innocent child is sent to prison without a trial for

    the death of an infant for an undetermined time sentence. Her

    time in prison is so real the reader feels as if they are right

    Beside her all the time. The child was Dana Lundgren,

    daughter of oneof the DuFranes household servants. Dana is

    a strong and realistic character. Her story is unbelievable but

    so real you feel as she feels.

    If Dana is innocent the first question is: How did baby Mary

    really die? The second question is: Why did Marguerite

    Du Frane leave half her fortune to the person she had sent to

    prison for her daughter death ? Question three: What do

    Celeste and Dana have in common?

    This book has an unique plot with a cast of complex and

    interesting characters with a surprising ending after the

    discovery of Marguerite Du Franes confession penned

    prior to her death.

    I received this book from book fun.org. My opinion is my own.

    I really enjoyed this story. The characters were wonderful and likable. The story was well written for going back and forth between the past and the present. It was fun to see how some of Hollywood was run back in the first days of movies. I look forward to Allison Pittman's books and again I look forward to the next. I received this book from the Tyndale blog network for a fair and honest opinion.

    All for his sister is by far the best of the series. The first 2 books were okay to me. This third installment was really good. I love the mystery of the story. I felt sorry for poor Dana. She sure went through a lot in her life. I did not like Celeste too much at first but she grew on me halfway through the book.

    Great story, characters, historical, mystery and drama. I definitely recommend this book. Especially, if the reader has read the first two books of the series. Five stars

    All for a sister is another installment in this 1920s themed series. Celeste DuFrane is a girl who lacks nothing in Hollywood during the Roaring Twenties. She has bit parts in films and longs to be a star. The arrival of Dana Lundgren to the DuFrane mansion after spending most of her life imprisoned for a crime she didn't commit changes Celeste's world forever.

    This is the second book in this series that I've read. As in Allison Pittman's book, All for a Story, the characters are rich, complex and full of life. I especially enjoyed the format in which she used to tell the tale. The story is unfolded using regular narrative as well as a screenplay type set up to the scene and time jumps around as characters tell their sides of the story. I found myself quite intrigued soon after beginning this book and very much attached to the characters by the book's end. I recommend reading this well written story.

    I received this book from Tyndale in exchange for my honest review.

    Allison Pittman tells a compelling tale of deception, bitterness, as well as, forgiveness and new life. Her characters are quite realistic and believable. The novel jumped from different times and various leading characters, but I thought Pittman did a good job of clarifying who was speaking and why. The story kept me glued to the book to see if justice was brought to Dana. I just loved the story and the characters and would say it is worth your time investment to read.
