Until now... Determined to enjoy her imminent retirement, Adele invites her fellow bibliophiles to help her house-sit in the Blue Mountains. It's a tantalising opportunity to spend a month walking in the fresh air, napping by the fire and, of course, reading and talking about books. But these aren't just any books: each member has been asked to choose a book which will teach the others more about her. And with each woman facing a crossroads in her life, it turns out there's a lot for them to learn, not just about their fellow book-clubbers, but also about themselves.

Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

"[A Month of Sundays] demonstrates the capacity of a book to act as a mirror to the soul and an eloquent guide to a more contented future." WEEKEND AUSTRALIAN For over ten years, Ros, Adele, Judy and Simone have been in an online book club, but they have never met face to face. Until now... Determined to enjoy her imminent retirement, Adele invites her fellow bibliophiles to help her house-sit in the Blue Mountains. It's a tantalising opportunity to spend a month walking in the fresh air, napping by the fire and, of course, reading and talking about books. But these aren't just any books: each member has been asked to choose a book which will teach the others more about her. And with each woman facing a crossroads in her life, it turns out there's a lot for them to learn, not just about their fellow book-clubbers, but also about themselves. A Month of Sundays reminds us of the joy, the comfort and the occasional challenge we can find in the pages of a book. PRAISE FOR LIZ BYRSKI "Byrski...is by turns turbulent and tender. Her characters are portrayed as...warm, funny flawed heroes grappling with the cards destiny has dealt them." WEST AUSTRALIAN "...reflective, warm and wise..." WEEKLY TIMES "Liz Byrski has a guaranteed cheer squad for her novels which champion...women taking charge of their life and growing old creatively." DAILY TELEGRAPH
