She takes a trip to visit her married sister and to get fitted for a wedding dress, when her life takes a detour. She steps into a theater where Sister Aimee Semple McPherson, a charismatic female evangelist, is preaching the gospel and finds herself faced with temptations she never thought possible. All for a Song is a coming of age story set in the roaring twenties with all that it has to offer. Can Dorothy Lynn be happy with all that she ever thought she wanted-- her home, Brent and her private worship, or will the thrill of the stage and travel draw her in?
I LOVED this book and can't wait to share it with my friends!! I really identified with Dorothy Lynn and all the expectations she was meeting... I went straight from my parent's home, to a Christian College, to my husband's home (our home really). I never strayed from that path... never "sowed my wild oats" or veered from what was expected of me, well, maybe in my mind I did. I was never "brave" enough to try the things I thought I wanted to do. I appreciate the fact that the book wasn't a perfect fairytale... there were struggles and temptations, but I loved how the book ended, even though I cried. I will definitely be recommending this to others.
