Filled with delightful characters and page-turning situations, it's also an important book dealing with important issues around our responsibility for God's creation. And for the sake of us all, it's a book with a message that we can't put down."
-The Most Rev. Michael B. Curry, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church.

Of Green Stuff Woven is the debut novel by Cathleen Bascom who was recently elected the first woman Bishop of Kansas in the Episcopal Church
In the financial district of Des Moines, Iowa stands an historic Episcopal cathedral connected to several acres of restored prairie. When hotel developers approach Brigid Brenchley, the kind and quirky cathedral dean, she and her parishioners must choose between their passion for the prairie restoration and their need for money to repair the crumbling cathedral and address the needs of the parish. Of course, the parish's largest donor stands to profit from the deal.
The Creation? or the cash? As floodwaters rise, so do the stakes of their choice.
