SOLD ON A MONDAY BY KRISTINA MCMORRIS
Sold on a Monday by Kristina McMorris is a delightful and harrowing historical rendition of the struggles endured during the Dirty Thirties. Feature writer for a Philadelphia newspaper, Ellis Reed, takes a picture of two children innocently playing in front of their farmhouse with an unfathomable sign in the background reading “2 Children for Sale.” Lillian Palmer, secretary at the same newspaper, sees the intriguing photo and submits it to her boss and soon finds herself embroiled in a sticky situation with Ellis. Now they must undo the catastrophic mistake they’ve made. This photograph and the heartbreaking journey they embark on to discover what happened to the two children after they were sold change Ellis and Lilly’s lives forever. If you like historical fiction, you’ll really enjoy this read. I rate this novel 4.5 out of 5 stars.
