Brimming with heart and hope for a better tomorrow, RUSH is an uplifting novel universal to us all.
From New York Times bestselling author Kristina McMorris comes another unforgettable novel inspired by a stunning piece of history. 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.

The Ghosts of Charleston
The highlight of Tour Charleston's Ghosts of Charleston Tour is entering the lush, spellbinding Unitarian Church Graveyard built in 1772. Real time hauntings occur only a handful of times a year. However, since 1996, when we started what is now Charleston's oldest ghost tour, spirits in the Unitarian Church Graveyard have reached out to many people on our tour in visual, tactile and auditory ways.
Come visit our store to get your hands on the latest limited releases from your favorite best-selling authors. Be sure to ask about our exclusive signed copies!
