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.

"The sale of two young children leads to devastating consequences in this historical tearjerker from McMorris... Set against the hardscrabble backdrop of the Great Depression, McMorris's altruistic and sometimes damaged characters have moral compasses that realistically waver. A tender love story enriches a complex plot, giving readers a story with grit, substance, and rich historical detail." — Publishers Weekly
"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 (2017)." — Booklist
"Kristina McMorris evokes such a strong sense of place in her writing that to open her books feels less like reading and more like traveling." — BookPage
"[A] finely told, emotionally satisfying gem of a novel." — Historical Novels Reviews
