Overview

Four online friends meet in real life to learn more about each other—but end up also discovering themselves

For over 10 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. Each member has been asked to bring a book which will teach the others more about her. With the women all facing crossroads in their lives, it turns out there's a lot for them to learn, not just about their fellow book-clubbers, but about themselves.

Reviews

"She writes with warmth, insight and gently humour about ordinary, flawed characters grappling with relevant, real-life issues." —Courier Mail

"Byrski . . . is by turns turbulent and tender. Her characters are portrayed as . . . warm, funny, flawed heroes and heroines grappling with the cards destiny has dealt them." —West Australian

"[A Month of Sundays] demonstrated the capacity of a book to act as a mirror to the soul and an eloquent guide to a more contented future. Executed with wit and affection, the novel delivers exactly what it promises." —Weekend Australian
