Please join us for a fascinating conversation with New York Times-bestselling author Kristina McMorris about her brand new historical novel, Sold On A Monday.
A Depression-era reporter snaps a photograph of two children being sold on a farmhouse porch, a photo that leads to his big break, and consequences more devastating than he ever imagined. Inspired by an actual newspaper photo that stunned the nation, Sold On A Monday is a story of sacrifice, redemption, and the far-reaching consequences of our actions. Fans of Lisa Wingate’s Before We Were Yours and Christina Baker Kline’s Orphan Train will love this one.
What people are saying about Sold On a Monday:
“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).” – Library Journal “McMorris does what few writers can – transport me right into the middle of the story.” – Sara Gruen, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Water for Elephants “A masterpiece…heartfelt and heartbreaking.” – Pam Jenoff, New York Times bestselling author of The Orphan’s Tale “A story never to be forgotten.” – Sarah McCoy, New York Times and international bestselling author “McMorris evokes such a strong sense of place in her writing that to open one of her books feels less like reading and more like traveling.” – Bookpage
