    Description

    A picture is worth a thousand words, but sometimes the story behind the picture is worth a thousand more. 

    2 CHILDREN FOR SALE. 

    In 1931, near Philadelphia, ambitious reporter Ellis Reed photographs the gut-wrenching sign posted beside a pair of siblings on a farmhouse porch. With the help of newspaper secretary Lily Palmer, Ellis writes an article to accompany the photo. Capturing the hardships of American families during the Great Depression, the feature story generates national attention and Ellis's career skyrockets. 

    But the piece also leads to consequences more devastating than he and Lily ever imagined - and it will risk everything they value to unravel the mystery and set things right. 

    Inspired by a newspaper photo that stunned readers throughout the country, Sold on a Monday is a powerful novel of ambition, redemption, love, and family.

    Not what I anticipated...

    The cover of this book is what drew me in. I was hoping it would be a riveting story like 'Before We Were Yours', given the summary and subject matter. However, it took 12 chapters for anything all that interesting to happen. If I hadn't chosen this to be our book of the month for our book club, I'm not sure I would have been all that interested in continuing with it. The story did eventually pick up, but there were some far fetched plot lines toward the end that didn't seem very realistic. Also, the audible file shows 44 chapters but ended at 39. This was also very misleading, as I was expecting more to the story. All in all the book was okay, but not one I would recommend to others. Especially given the really slow build and abrupt end. Rather disappointing, actually.

    More of an after school special than historical fiction

    This book was fine if you are interested in a very light and predictable plot. There were extremely few details structured around any history, more the use of everyday knowledge of prohibition to host the setting. I learned as much from it as I would a show on the Hallmark channel.

    Wanted stories on children who persevered

    Was hoping for a story focusing primarily on the children sold during the Great Depression. Instead, The main subjects of the reporters took center stage. A descent book for a long road trip . .

    Excellent storytelling

    Kristina McMorris has crafted an excellent story of heartache, the power of an image, and desperate times. Ellis Reed is a reporter and photographer for the Philadelphia Examiner. On his way back from an assignment, a sign catches his eye, "2 Children for Sale" and two young boys sitting in front of a house. He snaps a photo of them, one he never intended to see in print, but it's found by the paper's secretary Lily Palmer. She shows it to the editor, and he wants the story. Another photo is taken, the truth gets a little stretched, and Lily and Ellis find themselves in a moral dilemma. I could not stop listening to this story. I had to find out what happened. The story is told from both Lily and Ellis' POV. The narrator is a male, Brian Hutchison, and I think that was an excellent choice. It gives the story a little bit more of the male perspective, a 1930's reporter feel, and Brian does well telling the story with his expressive and thoughtful voice. A must read/listen for anyone who has ever tried to uncover the truth.

    Predictable and uninteresting

    This book was just okay. I didn't really care about any of the characters that much and the plot line got more and more predictable as it went on. It wasn't difficult to get through, but it also wasn't a book that, I was anxious to get another moment to pick it up

    eh! so much promise, so little fulfilled

    engaging plot but too many holes and lack of character development to maintain interest. I finished it but only because this was a pick for my book club. may request a refund of my audible credit and am very unlikely to read another book by this author.

    SOLD ON A MONDAY by Kristina McMorris

    Good plot and many different sub plots intertwined
    into the story. By the end of the book you knew things were going to work out better I n the long run.

    Excellent book describing a horrible time

    A poor family decides to sell their children, hopefully landing them in better circumstances, as well for a bit of money.
    A great read, a sad time in American history.
