About The Book
After witnessing her older sister’s losing battle with pancreatic cancer, “her journey though the dark landscape of religious doubt toward her God,” Mars was overtaken with a compulsion: she wanted to go to church. So, she dedicated herself to visiting 31 houses of worship over a period of as many weeks. A Month of Sundays is the story of her enlightening spiritual pilgrimage.
In each chapter, Mars takes readers to a different scene — whether it’s a synagogue, a Baptist church, or a mosque — and with each visit readers are able to piece together a more complete, heartfelt picture of faith, God, and the search for meaning. Along the way, a poignant memoir of the relationship between two sisters unfolds.
Drifting in and out of her memories with her sister, a grief-stricken Mars weaves between past and present, moving readers along her narrative path. Her story spills out like that of an old friend sitting at the kitchen table, fanning out her photos, sharing her struggles. A generosity and lack of judgment season her tale, full of joy and loss. Early on in her memoir, Mars says of her dying sister, “I consider it an honor and a privilege to be with her, every day, as she reflects on the state of her soul.” We could say the same of Julie Mars.
