All For a Sister by Allison Pittman

It's the Roaring Twenties in Hollywood and Celeste DuFrane has it all. Looks, charm, and stardom. She's living the perfect life. That is, untill her mother dies. Celeste then discovers that half the estate is left to a woman she has never met. A woman who was accused of killing her older infant sibling, before Celeste was born.

Dana Lundgren has spent most of her life in prison for a crime that never happened. Now she founds out that half of the Estate, belonging to the woman who accused her of killing her child, now belongs to her. Dana is grasping to understand why Marguerite DuFrane would leave her so much, when she made sure Dana went to prison. As Dana and Celeste begin to read Marguerite's written confession, life-changing details come to light and the pieces of this puzzle begin to come together. These two women begin to realize that they have more in common than they ever thought they could.

I LOVED this book. I love stories that take place in the 1920's. That time period intrigues me. I was hooked after the first two pages and I couldn't wait to see how the lives of these women intwined together and how the coped with being thrown together and not knowing one another. I would reccommed this book to anyone who likes historical fiction and a bit of suspense. *I recieved this book free From Tyndale publishing, as part of their blogger program, in exchange for my honest review.*
