Kristina McMorris has long been one of my favorite authors. I am very excited to reveal the cover of her next novel, Sold on a Monday and to offer a $50 Amazon Gift Card Giveaway.
Sold On A Monday comes out on September 1st.
You know it is going to be good when both Sara Gruen and Pam Jenoff blurb a book:
“Kristina McMorris does what few writers can-transport me right into the middle of the story.” – Sara Gruen, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“In Sold On A Monday, Kristina McMorris has written a vivid and original story, set against the harsh landscape of the Great Depression. McMorris brilliantly chronicles the way in which a moment’s fateful choice can result in a lifetime of harrowing consequences. A masterpiece which 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
About Sold On A Monday
2 children for Sale
The scrawled sign, peddling young siblings on a farmhouse porch, captures the desperation sweeping the country in 1931. It’s an era of breadlines, bank runs, and 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 the image leads to his big break, the consequences are devastating in ways he never imagined.
Haunted by secrets of her own, secretary Lillian Palmer sees more in the picture than a good story and is soon drawn into the fray. Together, the two set out to right a wrongdoing and mend a fractured family, at the risk of everything they value.
Inspired by an actual newspaper photo that stunned readers across the nation, this touching novel explores the tale within the frame and behind the lens—a journey of ambition, love, and the far-reaching effects of our actions.
