Description
2 CHILDREN FOR SALE The sign is a last resort. It sits on a farmhouse porch in 1931, but could be found anywhere in an era of breadlines, bank runs and broken dreams. It could have been written by any mother facing 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 it leads to his big break, the consequences are more devastating than he ever imagined. At the paper, Lillian Palmer is haunted by her role in all that happened. She is far too familiar with the heartbreak of children deemed unwanted. As the bonds of motherhood are tested, she and Ellis must decide how much they are willing to risk to mend a fractured family. Inspired by an actual newspaper photograph that stunned the nation, Sold on a Monday is a powerful novel of love, redemption, and the unexpected paths that bring us home.
Geographic Coverage
"A scrawled sign on a farmhouse porch reads "2 Children for Sale," capturing the desperation sweeping the country in 1931, during the Great Depression. Struggling reporter Ellis Reed's photograph of the children leads to his big break, but the consequences are unimaginably devastating. Haunted by secrets of her own, newspaper secretary Lillian Palmer sees the image and is soon drawn into the fray. Together, Ellis and Lillian set out to right a wrong and mend a fractured family, at the risk of everything they value." -- back cover.
