About the Book Planted in the Sky    Planted in the Sky is the story of a present-day Eve, uprooted from her own Eden, seeking new life and wholeness as she journeys from a San greal Community in Thunder Bay to a Benedictine monastery in Idaho, and then to a time of sabbatical in England. While studying writing and postmodernist fiction at the University of Sussex, Genevieve O'Connell travels through England's cathedral towns, rediscovering the stories swhich lit up her childhood with the promise of nobility. The journey moves her from Arthur's idealism to the passion of Guinevere, even as she tries to escape from the passionate encouter with God that astounded her at the monastery, and will not let her go.
