Kristina McMorris is a new author for me and her newest book, Sold on a Monday is a great one. I will be looking for more of her books. Sold on a Monday takes place in 1930’s Philly and NYC. The premise is a new one for me. In the heart of the Depression, a photographer takes a picture of two kids holding a sign that says “2 Children for Sale.” What happens next is the basis for a sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes entertaining and in the end very satisfying read. The characters are believable. The descriptions of the time and places are authentic. The entire story is based on an actual photo from the 1940’s. Ms. McMorris has done a wonderful job of telling a gripping story.
I received a free copy of the book from NetGalley and SOURCEBOOKS in exchange for my honest review. Thank you.
