Image of All for a Song

Pittman’s latest is a novel of contrasts. Dorothy’s naïve manner is both refreshing and maddening. Although the 1920s are brought to life, the scenes set in 2010 tend to be confusing. This is one that could have been a page-turner yet is not. This is a story worth reading but not one that will stay with you.

Dorothy Lynn Dunbar thinks she has it all. She is engaged to the young pastor of her late father’s church and enjoys the small town life she lives. She loves walking through the forest and fields barefoot and composing songs on her brother’s guitar. On a trip to her sister’s home in St. Louis, she stumbles across the traveling group of evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson. When she is given the opportunity to join the group as a singer, Dorothy sees it as a way to reconnect with her brother in California. Is she willing to give up everything she knows for a chance at stardom? (TYNDALE, Feb., 368 pp., $13.99)
