Staff Reviews


It begins with a picture. Reporter Ellis Reed never meant for the picture of two kids in front of a sign reading "2 Children for Sale" to be published in the paper, let alone spark a national debate. Despite his fame from the article, the picture has bigger consequences than anyone could ever have imagined. Teaming up with an unlikely ally Lillian Palmer, Ellis must decide how much fixing his mistakes is worth, before it's too late. In this moving novel, Kristina McMorris paints a heartbreaking tale of family, hardship, and sacrifice during the Great Depression. It was full of twists and turns that kept me guessing what would happen in the next chapter. I highly recommend to anyone interested in history or just looking for a moving story! - Kristina

An unforgettable novel by Kristina McMorris, inspired by a stunning piece of history.

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.
