    A Must Read!!!

    The power of the press! When reporter Ellis comes across two boys with a sign that they were for sale, he takes a photo of them which was not intended for publication. Coworker Lillian sees the photo and slips in with other photos for publication. When the editor wants to publish it, the negative and photo are missing. Ellis goes back to the area and after not finding the original boys, he does find the sign and "borrows" two other children to recreate the photo.. The photo sets off a trajectory of events for many different people, both personally and professionally. Although set in the Great Depression this book is very relevant to things happening in the press today. The characters are well developed and the story holds the reader's interest throughout. I highly recommend this book.

    Historical Fiction

    Sold on a Monday by Kristina McMorris A photograph tells a story…but…is that story always the same for every person who sees it? Can the perception impact reality and if so…will it impact for the betterment of others or do the opposite? Ellis Reed has worked his way up at the newspaper from menial jobs to writing for the society pages. These stories are merely a stepping stone to the future pieces he hopes will one day be FrontPage news. His photographs are used to accompany and enhance his writing but he also manages to take a few that call to him and are for his personal use. One day a photo he takes for himself makes its way onto the front page with a story that is picked up by other newspapers across the USA. That photo and story make a huge difference in not only his life but create a ripple effect that impacts many more. Set in 1931 during the depression the lives of many hung by a thread. Money was tight, food was scarce, people were jumping from roofs to end it all and sometimes desperate measures were taken to survive. Sometimes one sold their children or sold orphans from an orphanage or became involved with bootleggers or mafia or gangs or sold their souls to the devil to stay alive or climb the rungs of the ladder of success BUT what is the price on pays for that deal with the devil? Characters of Note: Ellis: intrepid reporter with a goal and mission…for a short time lost his vision Lily: Secretary, single mother, Nellie Bly wannabe – dedicated and delightful with a will of steal Clayton: Lily’s suitor who is out for the story, loves Lily but may love pursuit of the story more Ruby & Calvin: Children of Geraldine, pawns in the story that may or may not end up with a happily ever home The Millstones: A man and his wife wanting to adopt – but what lies underneath? This book gave me the feeling of an O’Henry story but also reminded me of Michael O’Halloran by Gene Stratton Porter… Thank you to NetGalley and Sourceboks for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Very interesting twists and turns loved it.

    Well written, author twisted and turned things and you were never sure where it was going. Easy read with lots of never expected turns.
