"Sister Aimee's" theatrical pulpit techniques made her the most publicized revivalist in the world - she toured the US, Canada, Britain and Australia. In 1926, shortly after divorcing McPherson, by whom she had a son, Aimee disappeared and was presumed drowned; she reappeared weeks later claiming to have been kidnapped, apparently to cover her affair with her radio station manager.
