SOLD ON A MONDAY







My review 
The title and cover photo initially hooked me into reading this book and then I didn't put it down until I was finished. It's pretty unusual for a man to be writing feature articles in the society section of a newspaper in the 40's. I found the plot to be engaging and the pacing about right. It's a good read for an afternoon.

Release date 


August 28,2018


Book description 

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
A USA TODAY BESTSELLER
A PUBLISHERS WEEKLY BESTSELLER
A NATIONAL INDIEBOUND BESTSELLER 
An unforgettable novel by Kristina McMorris, inspired by a stunning piece of history. 
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.
