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.
