Well researched Historical Fiction at it's best

I’m a huge fan of Kristina McMorris and this book was such a treat. First you learn of the photo and then the story unfolds into something much deeper. The tragedies of families who were poor and hungry and perhaps ill are sad by themselves. Then add in the choices people make to sell s story and complicated doesn’t touch this book. Ellis and Lily are quite different but yet both are hiding secrets.
Loved the journey this book took me on. Learning more about the early 1930’s and loving the newspaper aspect in the tale. Highly recommend!! I had the chance to hear the author speak as well and the research that went into this and all her books was fascinating. Grab this book soon!!
