The author, Julie Mars, loses her sister to cancer after caring for her in her dying months. She returns home to New Mexico and finds she wants two things. The second is this:
"My second serious desire is to go to church. I am surprised and a little afraid of this, so I set up some ground rules for myself. I will go to church every Sunday for thirty-one weeks: a month of Sundays. I will dress up and arrive a half hour early to take a picture with Shirley's simple camera, which I have taken from her farmhouse. I will enter the church five minutes early and sit somewhere in the middle. I will open my heart to the spirit."

Each chapter is one such visit. Fascinating, informative and enjoyable!
