All for a Sister by Allison Pittman ~ Review

All for a Sister (All for, #3)My Review:

Two families forever changed by the events of one night.

Dana has spent much of her young years locked away from the world for a crime that she did not commit, yet never went to trial for.
Celeste on the other hand has grown up with all the material wealth she could ask for along with a generous dollop of beauty and charm. Celeste longs to make a name for herself as an actress lighting up the silver screen.
But as Dana and Celeste look back on their past, they uncover the dark secrets that brought them together and tore their families apart.

This was a book full of variety switching back and forth between the present and the past, from Mrs. DuFrane's confessionals, to the script of the film about Dana's life, to Celeste's memories, and the modern day.

This kind of story-telling showed snapshots from Celeste and Dana's lives, and how they grew up very differently, in the midst of injustice and a troubled family.

It was an engaging read, and I liked the growing relationship between Dana and Werner. While I did feel like I got to know Celeste as a child, it was hard to really understand her as an adult.

Overall, a saga of a troubled family in the years before the Roaring 20's, and the dreams and hopes that made up an Era.
