An unforgettable bestselling historical fiction novel by Kristina McMorris, inspired by a stunning piece of history from Depression-Era America.

2 CHILDREN FOR SALE

The sign is a last resort. It sits on a farmhouse porch in 1931, but could be found anywhere in an era of breadlines, bank runs and broken dreams. It could have been written by any mother facing impossible choices.

For struggling reporter Ellis Reed, the gut-wrenching scene evokes memories of his family's dark past. He snaps a photograph of the children, not meant for publication. But when it leads to his big break, the consequences are more devastating than he ever imagined.

Inspired by an actual newspaper photograph that stunned the nation, Sold on a Monday is a powerful novel of love, redemption, and the unexpected paths that bring us home.

Kristina McMorris's poignant historical novel will capture fans of The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah and The Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly and inspire any book club.

"A masterpiece that poignantly echoes universal themes of loss and redemption, Sold on a Monday is both heartfelt and heartbreaking."—Pam Jenoff, New York Times bestselling author of The Orphan's Tale

"Despite the sensitivity of the subject of missing children, McMorris' latest is touching and never maudlin. This book may appeal to fans of Lisa Wingate's Before We Were Yours."—Booklist

A heart-rending page-turner!

Suspenseful, sweet, thought-provoking. A powerful reflection of how the Depression Era necessitated impossible choices.

Kept you Hanging

I felt this book was hard to get into & then it always kept you hanging and got annoying towards the end. I was hoping for more truth behind the actual hauntings of this terrible era.

This story was so heartwarming. I can’t imagine what a lot of children went through back in that time. The cover alone brought tears to my eyes. I could almost feel his hurt and pain. Wonderfully written. Now I wonder what happened to a lot of the children. That will stick with me forever.
Thank you.
